I think this is going to work!

Friday, May 29, 2009

I have readjusted my Calorie Goal to be for the weight of 117 which is my "ideal weight" according to the charts for my height of 5'1.5" with a large frame. So this is now the number I aim to eat daily, 1823 calories.

Since I burn 300+ calories daily, I feel quite safe going up to 2000 daily.

So far it is working with a very small weight change daily!


**edit 6/6: My weight climbed up to 125.8 but then it started coming down again. Today 124.4 so I am on the move! I also walked 6.5 miles this morning! First time for such a long walk! Cathy said, "do you want to go to the mile marker?" and since we tease each other daily I returned, "I will if you will," but today she meant it! So we added another 1/2 mile!! And survived!! Feels great!

    It is a good thing we have a leader who can help us learn before we get there. I watch your blogs and adjust my range accordingly. Many thanks!

This is so good of you to post.
People don't believe it.
I learned from you to eat more and it's working for me.
My sisters could never believe how little I ate,
back when I was on a a diet,
and I never lost weight.
Now I eat more and am losing,
but losing.

I'd notice your weight loss and yes it's supposed to be slow but you are very near your goal. I'm quite confident that the last few pounds come off MOST slowly. Or would that be called
M O S T s l o w l y?

Keep the faith

the sunglasses emoticon was a last minute thought
before long you won't even cast a s h a d o w!
