Shedding...

Since I left Germany I've lost 22 pounds! That's right people. I'm shedding the pounds.

What am I doing to shed all these pounds? I cut carbs, drastically. NO, I did not cut all carbs- I'm Italian. I could never, not have pasta. Plus, I just decided life isn't worth living without all carbs, all the time. Also, my job is very physically demanding in nature-- so that definitely helps.

I'm really wanting to lose another 20-30 pounds. Unfortunately I have started to plateau. Any suggestions?

Good for you! I think when watching my food I eat a little less pasta, but I definitely couldn't cut it all out. Moderation is the key. :-)

As for your plateau, could you add exercise to jump start your body or anything? More than anything I hope you feel good and good about yourself!

Way to go!! I wish I could slim down ... I love carbs too ... hence my lunch at Panera today! haha... I think cardio will be the trick to keep cutting.

I agree with Kate, adding extra physical exercise might help burn the extra calories you need to jump past the plateau. I know you have a physically demanding job as it is though,

At least 64 ounces of water per day, 3 cups of green tea per day (helps with burning fat), don't eat sugar (like fruit or carbs) after 2 pm. Hope that helps you out a little. I know it doesn't sounds like much but it really helps!

Do you go to they gym? Even 15 extra minutes of intense cardio will help! And it doesn't have to be in a gym, You can do things like jump rope or a mix of different things in your home! That will most likely help you're plateau!

Also, keep hydrated, I like to chug a glass of water before eating a meal, it fills you up so you don't eat more than you should!l

Also, make sure you're eating enough protein, because that will help you burn more calories!

Good luck: )

Great job hun! You're rocking this! :) I second Kate -- maybe add some exercise, or DIFFERENT exercise to hit muscles that haven't been targeted in the past :)

Great job! I have no advice just encouragement. You can do it :)

Awesome job on the weight loss! The only thing I can suggest is if you're working out change it up. Try different workouts so different muscles are being worked
