Striving for my daily deficit
Friday, March 11, 2011
So, using Sparkpeople's reports, I figured out that all I need to do to burn 2 pounds a week is to have a 700 calorie deficit 7 days a week. I can do this with careful planning. I am planning out my menu and tracking before I eat, so that I am sure of what I need to consume, and burn inorder to succeed. I can eat 1550 calories a day if I burn 400 through exercise. I have noticed that my sparkfriends who are succeeding with their weightloss all have a precise plan, and they are sticking to it. I am going to join the ranks of those who are succeeding. I will succeed! I will stick with my plan, and I will get down to my goal weight. I will not be depriving myself. I will eat what I want, within reason. The only constraint is that I will be keeping my intake at 1550 calories, or below. I can have cookies, if I plan for them. Planning is the key!
