We are still here....

Day we kinda lost 6 days... 
 While we may not have been posting, we have been thinking, evaluating, strategizing.  

In our evaluation of our carefully laid plan, 
we found a flaw.  
And, before you write us off as losers, 
we are serious about this flaw.

The flaw in our plan was...

 lack of food.

Now I know ALL dieters feel this way, but I'm being completely serious.

I believe we went from grazing carte blanche, to eating like a bird, a really, really small bird, plus exercising more than we had in months and our bodies went into starvation mode.

  The Orange Kitteh did lose like four pounds over the two weeks.  

I lost nothing. 

When we cut back on exercising and added more calories back into the formula (which may or may not have come from Cheetos) I lost 3 pounds!

I seriously think we did too much, too soon!

We were hard core and the results were not there.
It was sooo discouraging.

So, our new strategy is to step up the calories, continue the exercise and chill a bit.  The Kittehs have been known to obsess a bit, and this challenge was no different.

Roni's post today was comforting and reassuring.  If you did not see it, you might want to check it out.  I agree that while weight loss is a goal, it really is the change in lifestyle that is the prize!


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog:) I was just discussing this with someone recently... the idea that if we cut calories too much, our body reacts with thinking we are starving and slows down our metabolism. I wonder for myself, pretty much in maintenance, if I can gradually increase my intake and manage to not gain but to increase my metabolism. That would be sooo nice:)
