I started keeping track of how much I am eating a little over a month ago. I even went out and bought a food scale to measure everything.
I was 206 at that time, fluctuating quite a bit.
When waking up today I was at 182.
I need to invest in some barbells for weight training, but I just hope the weight continues to come off at the steady rate it's been coming off (I know some of it was water weight).
I walk 5 miles/day, along with couch to 5k 3x per week.
I try to eat around 1600 calories per day. I stopped directly monitoring every calorie as I feel I've developed a good sense on how much I should eat, and I haven't gained anything so I guess it's working.
I don't limit what foods I eat either, I eat whatever I want, just a lot less. I plan to start eating more vegetables/protein as well, but I don't see a point in cutting out my favorite foods if I can eat less of them and not worry about adding excess weight.
Which leads me to one thing, do you believe weight loss plateaus aren't a real "thing"? And are just caused by error on behalf of the person more of the time?
