Thanks for the reply, yes it was what I meant. I also seem to have a hard time reaching those calories. I focus on getting some sort of excercise each day, even though it is still not more than the calories I take in, will get there eventually :)
Im not sure quite what you mean? Unless you mean the preplan diet they have...I dont worry with that, we have different foods and even called by different names. I eat what I know is healthy for me and stick to foods that are unprocessed. We get given 1200 calories to eat in a day and what we eat is up to us, as long as we track it. Sometimes the SA foods are different, so when I buy certain foods, I put into favorites so that I can track it correctly. If we dont eat processed foods and take-away-foods, 1200calories is MORE THAN ENOUGH, in fact some days I dont manage 1200 but not because I have eaten enough, just that the more fruit and veg you add, the more food you get and the less calories you use. I also like in shape cottage cheese which you can eat an entire tub of because it has minumum calories.
I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.
Oh, so I have to admit that I am totally confused. So I started using this site a few 2 or so days ago and really love it, it is great to know how much I consume etc.
I just have a few questions: My food intake is nothing like what they have in the nutritional tracker (is that the sparkdiet?), funds are limited at this point in time, but I make use of what I have. I tried to start to get into a fitness routine, so I tried with swimming, squats etc, but I am just starting out, must I push myself to do something everyday? I know the more calories I burn than what I consume the more I will lose.
Since I started my diet I lost 2 kg, for this weeks weigh in it was one, I feel dissapointed but I know I should be happy, since it is 1 kg lighter than last week :(
