I'm baaaaack! I have had some good success over the past couple of months with my weight loss and a whole ton of success since July 1st. I am walking 5k every day and now I'm back to tracking. I saw a nutritionist who did some intolerance testing on me. I am intolerant to gluten/wheat, dairy, garlic, artificial sweeteners, coffee, and corn. So, I'm trying to find a happy medium here. I have drastically limited my wheat, dairy, and artificial sweeteners. I have also drastically cut down on coffee, allowing myself 1 coffee when we are camping (there's nothing better than an early morning coffee at the campground), am not having garlic or corn and I feel fantastic. For wheat, I am allowing myself a sandwich once a week. For dairy, I have almond milk but will have feta or goat cheese and greek yogurt as they are all lower in whey. For artificial sweeteners, I am having only 3 diet pops a week.
Since the beginning of July, I have lost 9 pounds. My body shape is changing from the walking as well and I feel fantastic. No more gall bladder issues - no attacks and no back pains. My next step is to start practicing yoga. I am waiting for a new studio to open in August here and will join with the ultimate goal to be to get my teacher certification in yoga.
I also want to keep track of my +/- calories for the day. That's part of what I'll do here on my journal.
BMR (1980.25) + Calories burned (657) = 2637
2637 - Calories eaten (1644) = 993
My goal is to lose around 2 pounds a week which means that my daily target is around 1000. Most days I'm at least 1000, but tonight I am going out for dinner and will have a cocktail or two. Those are accounted for in my calories and in my +/- for the day.
I'm so glad to be back at SP!
