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.
