Hi and welcome to Fit & Organized. Great to have you with us. Join us on the different threads, challenges and team goals. Looking forward to getting to know you. If I can be of any help, please let me know.
If you're not seeing results, tracking your calories is definitely worth the investment in time. Doing it even for a short period of time (like a week) will at least give you an idea of how much you're eating and will probably shed light on why the scale isn't moving.
I just read an article about a recent study that showed the average American UNDERestimated how much they ate by 40% when asked to recall how much they had eaten earlier that day. 40% is A LOT!!!
It takes extreme dedication to measure/weigh everything out and enter it into the computer, but it will definitely help you if you're feeling like your progress has stalled.
How's it going? I just dropped my BFs parents off at the airport this morning so the crazy week is over.
But you'll be proud!!! Even among all the driving and eating out, I lost FIVE pounds!!! I couldn't believe it when I got on the scale last night. My boyfriend and I made a new pact. We order a salad and baked fish (or low-cal chicken) at restaurants and split. No bread and double steamed veggies no butter instead of potatoes/rice/starch. He lost 7 pounds this week.
We got a Homedics scale that measures weight, body fat % and water %. Everyone who steps on it thinks it runs a little high, but that's okay because it just gives me more motivation to lose!
