Definitely NOT an exact science...

Thursday, January 24, 2013

So I posted earlier that I had tracked and walked for 2 weeks with no change. Then I had 4 days where I didn't track - or walk - and I'm sure I ate horribly those days and still no change.

Now, 2 days back on the program of tracking and walking, the scale dropped 2#.

I've measured food for so many years, I'm confident I recorded accurate calories and they were a bit on the low side.....~1100 on most days with the occasional day ~1500. Maybe that's too low for me. Maybe the 4 days of over-indulgence was enough to let my body know I'm not starving.

I'll be glad when that Fitbit gets here. Since it adjusts caloric needs based on activity levels, and tailors the program accordingly, maybe I'll gain some insight on how to best lose the next 15#.

    Congrats on the 2#!!! Just keep on keeping on. I like what you said about it all being better than a gain!

    Thanks for the feedback, Bumps. I hope I am building muscle with this walking, since I'm doing hills, but I sure would love to see a 5+# difference! =D For now, I'm even happy with 2#. That's a heck of a lot nicer than a plateau. Although......a plateau is even nicer than a gain. It's all in how you look at it, right? =D

    I have been slowly loosing 1-2# per wk; but I just started mid Dec of 2012. I have noticed several posts that mention that as we gain muscle the scale stops for a while and a of a sudden we are down 5-10#. That's a tough hurdle. Keep up the good work. It will work out for you.
