Weigh In

Monday, June 17, 2013

Today was my first weigh in with the biggest loser challenge I am taking part in and I lost 0.4lbs. I am not happy with that. I have been tracking food and I have been exercising but I just figured out a few days ago that I was actually under eating. I thought that if I ate less calories I would lose more weight I didn't realize that it can actually have the opposite effect. So I went in and edited my fitness goals each week to equal what I am actually burning and it has me eating more calories. So this week my goal is to meet at least the minimum calories and more importantly to follow the meal plan I have figured out and not to give into temptation and stop for fast food on the way home.

    Keep it going! .4 pounds is a start in the right direction! If you lose more than 2 lbs a week it's so hard to not only keep that pace but also to keep the weight off. Slow and steady definitely wins the race. Do NOT get discouraged. That .4 will turn into 4 and then 14 and then however many you want :)

    .4lbs is nothing to be ashamed of! Slow and steady is the way to do it.
Be proud of that! That's the equivalent fat of two sticks of butter that is no longer on your body. Celebrate your success!
