So I have not gone back to my initial weight (Thankfully) but I have been going up and down a couple of kilos since before Xmas. I think that’s mostly due to stress. I’m making this a priority again. My plan is to pretty much continue what I was doing before and avoid binge-eating chocolates and other stress-related eating. Maybe next time I’m stressed I’ll make some plain popcorn to chew on.
Kristina W has written 8 entries about this goal
4 to go :-) But now I’m increasing the ambition to another 4 after that
I dropped this goal for a year (eek) and just took it up again about a month ago. Since then I’ve lost about 5 kilos, and I want to lose 8 more!
I’m more determined this time, myfitnesspal is great :) So is general research.
I just started using the site in the title, and it’s made calorie counting so much easier, it estimates how many calories I need a day for the amount of weight I want to lose in 5 weeks, and calculates calories burnt which increases the calories allowed for the day. It also takes note of fat and carb content, and gives me an estimation on how much weight I am losing. Great tool! In the past week I’ve only gone slightly above my 1200 calories a day twice (by about 50 calories) and had one day off. I feel much more confident already, and I think the exercising to be allowed to eat more is a fantastic idea because my body feels great (compared to a week ago) and shapely. Happy :) But I’ve been a bit naughty tonight and had too much focaccia. I just love that this site allows me to easily calculate what I can have, including treats. If I go about it the right way I can have a very healthy diet of mostly vegetarian food with a few meat and sweet treats each day, so I don’t torture myself by denying myself what I like, but don’t accidentally go totally overboard either. My biggest mistake was having Domino’s pizza on my day off, crazy amounts of calories, at least 250 per slice.
But yes, I strongly recommend at least trying the site out, it’s just a tool to use as you wish, catered to your lifestyle, and does the tedious calculating for you as well as offering a progress chart. Oh, and it’s free!
I’ve started going to Zumba from time to time as well as swimming every so often. Food wise I’m drinking more water and tea and as a result I feel less of a desire to snack.
I’ve gained weight since the last time I wrote for this! I guess that means I should lose more than 5 kilos now. Not sure how I’m going to approach this. I hate going to the gym unless I have company and my gym buddy is always changing her mind about going at the last minute. I need to eat a bit healthier I guess, but I don’t eat TOTAL junk now.. maybe cut down on carbonated drinks, not eat icecream and stuff like that in the evenings/night.. eat more veggies.
exercise.. I really need motivation, which is why someone to exercise with helps. I might get my old jogging buddy to come jogging with me again.
okay, my aim for the next month is to lose 5 kilos. yes.
I think I’m about 73 kilos. But it’s probably a bit more. I need to be more specific with this goal. So far my eating and excercise habits counter each other so my weight remains pretty stable. I need to figure out a diet and exercise routine that I am willing to stick to. I am not into routines at all, but exercising has never been easier for me; i have free time and it makes me feel good. Eating habits are a lot more a question of both will power and know-how. Ineed to learn how to a-cook, b-cook healthy food.
-eat more fruit rather than sweets
-try to do a little bit of exercise every day, even if it’s not at the gym
