150,000-199,999 SparkPoints 150,643


Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I have been a member of Sparkpeople since 2009 and have made healthy changes:
1.Walking 4-5 days per week – at least one hour per day
2.Balanced diet – carbs/fats/protein
3.Increased fruit and vegetable servings

However, although I lost a couple of inches from my waist and from my hips, and I now can walk 8 km with Nordic poles without being completely exhausted, I was not seeing a weight loss.

When I saw my doctor for my annual check up in May, she suggested I weigh myself every day and cut back on calorie intake until I saw a weight loss. Shortly thereafter I read an SP article about using ‘calorie differential’ as a tool. I started on June 1.

On June 20 I recorded a two pound loss in SP and am registering a loss of another three pounds (but will not recorded in SP until I have maintain that loss for a couple of weeks – slightly crazy I know!).

I am eating food I really, really like that is balanced nutritionally and within my calorie range, have cut out snacks, reduced alcohol consumption and am continuing my walking routine.

Feeling positive!
