Hi Renee! Thanks so much for the confidence boost! I'm about 5' 5 1/2" and try to take in about 1600 calories when all I'm doing are Cathe's workouts. When that photo was taken (at the Badlands!) I had just come off a 6 week Gym Styles with HiiT rotation. That was the first day of a month long hiking vacation. I ended up consuming WAY MORE than 1600 calories per day during that month because I was ravenous from 8 hour hikes. I went from 130 pounds down to 122 and felt awesome! The tough part is when the vacation is over and you have to scale back the food! I shot right back up to 130 in no time! I've been putting in 125 as my weight goal in the nutrition program and was given 1501 calories as my upper limit. I find it hard to stick to that, especially if I want a protein recovery drink after weight training. Today is my last day of the 3 Month Transformation Rotation and I have noticed a lot of firming and endurance gains, but no weight loss! I think this must be muscle gain with the fat loss??? I feel so amazing that I have really just used 1500 calories as a guide and don't get too upset if I go over by 150-200 calories on any day as long as I maintain a lean look. I'll be starting the STS "Kikster" Pyramid Rotation next week and have committed to really watching my nutrition with this rotation: more fruits and veggies, less processed stuff. I'm also trying to incorporate my recovery drink into my daily nutritional allotment. I realize that I probably won't be losing weight during this rotation; what I really want is to sculpt and lean out (and look better in a bikini ), as well as gain strength and endurance.Nambo u look wonderful! Can u tell me how tall u are and your calorie intake? I am tryn to figure mine..because sometimes i feel its to high.and i have not lost weight at all. But if i go lower i hear its to low. Gettn confused. Im on myfitnesspals n it subtracts deficit annyway still didnt lose and i was tired and got injuries often.
