It is so frustrating to try and find calories that all say the same thing. I looked up Greek food today and got all kinds of calories. I know people make things with different seasoning and that makes a different. I know some use oil, some don't. I just went to a happy medium and hope for the best. I know what I ate was not fried, not sweet. So I just hope I did okay.
My calories said 1500, but my stomach says huh. I will just drink some water and maybe hot tea and just wait for tomorrow to eat something that I know what is in it. It really is frustrating to go out to eat you just never know just what you are eating.
I did have some good news. I was not going to weigh again until February but I just could not wait so I weighted this morning and so far I have lost 15 pounds since January 4. I know some of that was fluid but I know some of it was fat and I'm happy. I have five more pounds to my first goal, You know 20 pounds. I like that. First 20 will be gone soon and then on to the next 20 and so on.
I think I will go bike and see if I can burn about 100 calories. That will make me feel better about the whole calorie counting.
