Starting to progress...I think.
Saturday, January 15, 2011
Just wanted to let every know that I think I have made a little progress. This morning I was down to 151.0! That's the lowest in several months. Sad to say that the problem has been that I was just eating too many calories! I have been holding it under 1500 for sure and as close to 1300 as possible as many days as I can.
It is slightly easier now that the holidays are past and not so many tempting treats are in my way. Also I have sworn off Nutella and Nilla wafers! I had been eating that in the evenings when I wanted a snack even when I knew I had already eaten my calorie allotment for the day. I just can't go over 1800 on a regular basis because my weight will slowly creep up.
Now I just have to stay the course and I guess re-figure how I'm going to do maintenance, I obviously can't afford as many calories as I was allowing myself before.
And in case you are wondering, it really doesn't seem to make a lot of difference how much or what kind of exercise I'm doing, if too many calories are going in it's impossible to work off enough not to gain weight.
