All Calories Are Not Created Equal!

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

OK....I was under the delusion that losing weight was simply a matter of mathematics.

Calories in less calories burned equals weight loss success.

But it turns out that not all calories are created equal. I've been eating out a lot during the last week, even having a few alcoholic drinks along the way. I was carefully tracking all of the things that I ate, and only went over calories a couple of days. I was going along my merry way, still expecting a weight loss this week. But the scale isn't budging. In fact, I'm up a few pounds.

Reality check.

I'm going back to the basics for a few days, hoping to get myself back on track.

    Just wait a few days and weigh in again - it's probably just the enormous amount of salt that is put in a lot of pre-packaged/fast foods... It'll come off - you just wait and see!

    Are you tracking the drinks, too? Those calories are sneaky.
Hang in there. You can do it!
