My calories eaten today, including a snack I haven't actually eaten yet, are 1268. My calories burned are 574.
I created a spreadsheet and am tracking my stats. I am trying to see if this really is a numbers game. I'm taking my BMR and tracking the calories I eat less than that, and each time I reach 3500 calories I should lose a pound. I did some research and using BMR calculators online my BMR should be about 1578 calories, but after tracking for some time and not losing I think it is closer to 1200 calories, so I am using 1200 as my BMR. I should reach 3500 calorie deficit in a couple of days and I'll see what the scale says.
I've been so very hungry today. My planned evening snack is graham crackers, a real treat, I just hope we have some in the cupboard! I have been trying to teach my fiance to write down on a list grocery items that we run out of or that he just wants in general, but he has a habit of eating all of something and not writing it down and so when the time comes that I want some it's gone. It happened this morning with the oatmeal, I wanted some for breakfast but we didn't have any. I had just been at the store and if I knew we were out I would have gladly bought some more. Now I'll just have to wait until next shopping trip. The joys of living together, lol! Still, I wouldn't trade it for all the oatmeal in the world! Okay, I'm going to check on the graham crackers now!
