Week 1 (Day 8) of Calorie Deficit

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Date: July 19 (week 1)
Goal weight week 1: 185
Actual Weight: 184.6
Change: 2.4 lbs
Dress size: loose size 14

I would have shared some of my frustration in the Day6 blog but I can say that compared to my previous efforts calorie deficit has moved me from my previous plateau but I must admit to some frustration with counting every calorie.

I have not been able to exercise as I would like due to a bunch of niggling injuries; bum knees, sore back etc but the weight has still creeped down. That is positive.

On the more positive note, my sweet tooth is starting to come under some control. I still have to be very very careful but I am not craving sweets as much as before. I have a bar of chocolate in the fridge and it has stopped calling my name all day. Lol

I still think about carbs though. For instance I keep thinking about curry chicken and rice and I know I will be challenged to eat only a small amount so I will leave it till the weekend when I can spend a little more time at the gym. Luckily I still like the vegetable and fish soups and I love salad (no dressings other than lime) so I don't feel too deprived.

    Thanks for your comments. emoticon

To NANCYRUBIO: I have celiacs so gluten is a no no and that has been a blessing in disguise as I have gained a love of vegetables and salads. Without the celiacs I would have maintained my love of bread products and would not eat as much organic and fresh vegetables and other produce. It also means I cook more so I have greater control over what I eat and a reason not to eat the snacks/treats people bring to the office. lol
