I have a new found dedication to losing weight and staying healthy. I've worked out 6 of the last 7 days and I have done my crunches every day. I am proud of these accomplishments! I feel really great(physically). I've also been watching what I eat and measuring things out.
A week ago today I started this new journey. Anxiously I stepped on the scale to see how much it has all paid of.. then I saw the number. Only down 1 pound. How can that be???
I have been using this online food journal at the daily plate to track what I have been eating and how much exercise I am doing. You put in your weight, height, age, activity level and it calculates how many calories you should be eating daily. So it says I should be eating 1,491 calories a day. Which is right on target because when I talked to the trainer at the gym they said 1500. My problem is that I am barely making it over 1100 calories a day. I think I made it to 1200 yesterday. So maybe I'm not eating enough? I've been eating what seems like non-stop but it is mostly fruits and veggies.
I would be lying if I said I wasn't somewhat disappointed. I'm not giving up though. I have a long road ahead of me. so.. 1lb down.. 49 to go!
If anyone has any healthy recipes please email them to me! I'm running out of ideas.
