Counting calories

Sunday, June 24, 2012

I have decided to change tactics and count calories instead of Weight Watchers points. I have been so slow at losing weight that I thought it was worth a try. I have worked it out that I should lose about 1 to 1 1/2 pound a week and by the end of July I should lose 6 pounds.
I am not bothered about how fast I lose weight but do want to try and lose a regular amount each week. Today was my first day so shall see how it goes.

    I use the food tracker every day to keep track of calories. I do it the lazy way. I don't put down what I ate.Only amount of calories. Counting calories does make a difference

Just to let you know, I found a web site called my fitness pal which lists British foods which I find easier to use and at the moment I am feeling really positive.
Thank you all.

    You will find the food intake tracker and the exercise tracker to be wonderful tools. I don't exercise enough, i'm working on it, but not there yet. But even the slightest improvement is noted through the exercise tracker, and that motivates me to keep going. With the food tracker, i have noticed that my downfall with food intake is carbs. Now that I know this, I can address that particular problem and hopefully see improveent soon. Best of luck to you in reaching your goals.

  You can do it! When you start losing it will stimulate some excitement about it and you will be encouraged to continue toward your goal.

I have been for my usual gym and aqua jog today and I also weighed myself but was very disappointed to find that for the 3rd week running I have stayed the same. I am still doing the Weight Watchers points and I believe that I am doing well with them, I am doing at least 120 mins exercise plus I walk everyday.

50 mins in the gym
30 mins aqua jog

I try to go for 2 walks per week of between 1-2 hours.

    Dont give up. You probably are building muscle. Sometimes the numbers on the scale dont change but you should see and feel the weight loss in your clothes. They should be looser and fitting differently. emoticon

    Don't give up, you are really doing so well. Many people, including me, don't do half the exercise you are doing. Maybe you are still building up your muscle tone which could be the reason you are not losing at the moment.

Tired and fed-up

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I did not lose any weight last week even though I have increased my exercise but I have high hopes for tomorrow.
I did not go for a walk this morning as the weather did not look to good, I have been trying to go for several walks a weeks plus my exercise, I went swimming on Friday and it is my favourite exercise.
Things are not good with Michael and it is coming up to 8 weeks since he went down, I am going to see our GP next month and talk to her about getting him to go to Amber valley mental health team, he was under Mansfield team but we have not found them very good.

    Sometimes the clothes show a difference when the scales do not.
This week should be better for you.

    Hang in there, and see if you can rack up some Non Scale Victories (consistency, exercise, etc)

Another pound gone

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Today was my first day at the gym after the Bank Holiday weekend.
40 minutes in the gym
40 minutes swimming
I did not do aqua jog as I had a headache and felt I had done enough, I also lost another pound, I am quite pleased with myself, I have had 3 good walks which have helped.

Back to the gym

Monday, May 28, 2012

Well after last week it was back to the gym and aqua jog to day, I weighed myself on Friday and I had lost another pound.
I went for a walk( I caught the sun a bit) and I did some gardening yesterday so I have managed to keep active this week, I also went on a walk on Tuesday.
I do hope this weather keeps up for the weekend.

    Way to go. I wish I had a pool available. I'm trying to get more active, have started some of my gardening I'd put off because of the weather. Now, if I would just quit drinking so much beer so the bit of exercise I'm getting could help! :-)
