Jess asked me a question which i thought i would answer in a post. Some will already know the answer to this...so those...dont be bored skip this post ;)
So the question was why did i change from ww to counting calories.
Early last year I was doing ww....but i had increased my exercise substantially...i was eaily earning 60+ exercise points per week...i was sticking to points...but i was plateaud. Mid last year when I plateaud I decided to start to throw myself into this lifestyle and read everything i can. I KNEW there had to be a reason why i wasnt losing but couldnt figure out what. So i started reading a lot...then november last year i had a big chat to my personal trainer. Now those who know me...know i adore jilian michaels...in the conversation i was saying how frustrated i was how the weight wasnt shifting....and my trainer turned around and said "what would jillian do" ... over the next few weeks i pulled out Jillian Michaels book...it had a calorie calculation which i used to work out how many calories and took into account my exact number of calories burnt via exercise...then i read another of her books called "master your metabolism" all those things combined made me decide to give calorie counting a try. So january 1 i started calorie counting....and after a 7month plateau i have lost 20 kilos since then...so it worked for me :) I have no negative views of ww...but it wasnt for me...i exercise too much for their calculations to work for me.
Any other questions feel free to ask! :)
