25 down, 20 to go

Sunday, July 01, 2012

Well, 20.5. But yeah, I was not expecting that. In fact, I had an unexpected calorie hit yesterday. We had a bridal shower at a restaurant and I thought the cheesecake would be about 500 but when I got home I saw it was 810! Gulp! So I had a turkey wrap for dinner and figured at least I stayed between my weight loss range and my maintenance range. And then when I weighed myself this morning, the balance kept tapping down, down, down... to 182.5. I got off the scale to make sure it was zeroing properly, and tried again. Yup. Funny fact about calorie dense foods, they don't weigh very much. Not that I want to try that often, I was so hungry between dinner and bedtime last night. They don't weigh very much and are not as filling as a decent meal.

But yeah, 25 down!

    As a follow up, I was down another quarter this morning, so it wasn't just what I ate and then didn't eat Saturday. Don't worry, I don't weigh everyday.

    You're doing great! I don't believe it's all a matter of simple math. You'll never truly know exactly how many calories every bite contains as you'll never know exactly how many calories each exercise burns. It sounds like you're making the lifestyle changes of eating less and exercising more -- that's taking you on the road to better health! Way to go!
