Day 110. Calculations pretty worthless
Friday, May 29, 2015
Come to sparkpeople a lot. I'm retired so time I want an issue and I think it helps keep me focused on establishing a healthy lifestyle. Tracking my nutrition, reading blogs, learning, and writing in the blog all help. I have been tracking food and exercise religiously for 90 days now and calculating pounds lost. I avoid scales because from experience they will give false readings, maybe not false but misleading. Yesterday I had to get some blood work done at the health center so I got a good weight on their professional scales.
There's good news and there's bad news. The good is I'm losing a pound every five days or so, the bad, all my calculations for the last 90 days are wrong. I calculated, by subtracting my consumption from by base bmr and adding my exercise a daily caloric deficet, added them up to keep a running total of my weight loss. My calculated weight is 17#s lighter than my actual weight :)). Actually all good news. Thought i was losing weight too fast and I've been eating a little extra trying to slow down. One pound a week is the pace I'm searching for. Healthy lifestyle is my goal.
