So the scale has not been moving in my favor for quite some time. I can lose .2 of a pound but not anything significant. I am still working out a lot. I usually walk outdoors 5 or 6 days a week. So...what do I need to do differently? I decided to start counting calories again.
I HATE counting calories. I considered starting a food journal this summer but just couldn't motivate myself to do it. For the most part, I just eat healthy and follow portion sizes.
My mom is now trying to lose some weight, and she told me about myfitnesspal.com. It is an easy online or mobile app. for counting calories. This is only my second day to journal/track my food. It seems easy enough so far. I like the motivation once the calories are tracked: if I eat every day like today then I will lose 5.4 pounds by October 06! Now...if only I can stick to my allotted calories :) You just have to enter your weight, height, and goal weight to get the calculation of how many calories to eat per day. There is also an exercise tracker there too.
I'm going to give it my best effort. My plan is to stick to my allotted calories each day. Last night I had 32 calories left so I went to bed when I started to feel bored/hungry for a snack. It kept me honest.
