Is my scale broken because it sure isn't moving !!!
Friday, February 11, 2011
So for the last few weeks (very close to 3) I have been tracking my food very carefully and keeping very very close to all the recommendations as far as calories ,fat, protein and carbs. As far as exercise I'm not getting alot yet but I am moving more and making an effort to not stay idle.
I spent some time tracking food that I would normally have eaten in a day, looking for the amount of calories I would normally eat and it was between 2500 and 3000 easily if not more.
Now I am eating between 1200- and 1550 and making sure I am doing my best to keep it balanced and I have not lost a lb yet. I realize that this all takes time and won't change in a day, but not one pound...I must be doing something wrong !!! Is my scale broken ??
Just for kicks for anyone who happens to read this I posted a day of what I eat and the total amount of calories etc etc. ...PLease feel free to give me some thoughts on this...I know more exercise would be good and I am for sure getting to that bit by bit moving more and more. It just confuses me some when I do the math would it not be reasonable to that say if I was eating high calories before and not gaining any extra weight ...would I not be loosing if I cut 1000 calories out of my day ?
