So - after weeks of doing everything right, I took a much-needed hiatus from the over-analyzing I'd been doing. I had a beer. I bought and ate, IN MUCH MODERATION, a bag of gluten-free chocolate-covered pretzels. I didn't track, but I made good choices. I didn't count calories and didn't go over-board with the exercise, but didn't become sedentary either. I skiied.

This week, I've lost. Finally. 2.6 pounds to be exact. It's almost like my body (although i was hardly starving it!) went into defense mode when I started in full hilt with exercise and limiting calories to the Spark recommended levels. Today I did track, and I was over by about 300 calories (1771 calories to the recommended high of 1550). I jogged and walked this morning for about 40 minutes and probably burned off about 250-300 calories so I'm not gonna think too much about it.

Worked this week - hopefully the right track will start to show more results.

    You need more protein and calories when you're very active. Maybe your caloric intake was too low before? Every body is different. When you find something that works, run with it!
