I am new to the team. Love the positive messages on the Daily Check In here.
I had a great day. Thinking about taking a kettle ball class. Anybody tried that?
I continue to show a Daily Calorie Deficit (under Reports, which is under the Start Menu).
I use a FitBit One to count calories burned (24 hours a day, including when I sleep!) and I very accurately log everything I eat. These two things make the Calorie Deficit Report very accurate.
I have lost 15 pounds, at least theoretically, since mid-April by using ONLY the calorie deficit daily numbers, which I keep in a spreadsheet. I divide the accumulated total by 3500 (the number of calories in one pound of fat). This has worked for me: no anxiety, depression, frustration, sense of failure by watching the scale go up and down by increments. Weight loss = burning more calories that we eat. I have done this every day, except for 8 days since mid-April. Actually, I need only another 80 deficit calories to reach the 15 pound weight loss. This will happen tomorrow.
My Daily Calorie Deficit accumulated total is now 52420. I can wear clothes that I haven't gotten into in several years, and I call tell that I am getting thinner by looking at my reflection!
I am so glad that I at last found a weight loss technique that for me is fun, easy, and very successful.
I am thinking about lowering my weight loss goal to 132 instead of 137. Guess I can still do that and still be a part of the Maintenance team?
So nice to be here!
