Good day yesterday and off to a good start today!

So, I had a good day yesterday...great workout last night and I ate fairly well throught the day. I felt like I snacked a little way too much yesterday, but I made healthy choices for everything, so I guess that's not so bad. I've decided to increase my calorie intake to about 1400 per day and keep my calorie burn goal at 3200. This should give me an average weight loss of 2-3 pounds per week - I would definitely be happy with that! I know I will be more likely to reach my goal if I am realistic about what I can do forever. Eating less than 1000 calories a day is not something I feel like I could stick to long-term, nor is it very healthy. I've got to remember that this is not a "diet" - it is a complete life change and nothing that I am doing is temporary.

My scale is still telling me the same thing almost everyday...still at -23 lbs...better than going up though! I'm going to attempt to stay off of it for a few days - we'll see how that goes!


  1. Hang in there!! You will get there. Sounds like your on the right path!

  2. I agree! You want a caloric intake that is doable long term so you'll keep it up. Same thing with exercise. If I think I have to work out two hours a day I'm not likely to do that long term.

  3. You should be really proud of those 23 pounds lost! :)
