OK....so this weeks blogs goes like this:
On Mothers Day I got a fitbit from my kids. I was so excited! I love how it tracks and it has made me more conscious of my activity. I never knew how many times I actually go up & down stairs. One day it logged 47 stairs! I check my fitbit several times a day and find myself jogging like crazy at 11 PM to get in my 10,000 steps or more.
Now on to my calories:
I write down what I eat....even the bad stuff that I know I shouldn't be eating and am ashamed of logging it. I keep it to about 1,200 calories. Some days I feel full, but most of the times I am starved to death at night. Since logging my calories it seems I don't have the expense for fruits & veggies cause all my calories goes to other types of food. I am not big on water drinking and think nothing of downing 48 ounces of diet pepsi.
The problem: I gained weight! I am now up 3 pounds since getting the fitbit and I am more active now than before.
.........(feel free to let me know what you think is my problem)
Should I follow weight watchers and forget the calorie count?
What can I do about my feelings of starvation?
