Project Get Healthy is in full swing. I broke down and bought a scale and then stepped on it.
After the first weight in I felt like my results were skewed as the only reference I had for my weight was in early August. So I was waiting patiently for the next week to see what my progress really was.
We had weight loss people!!! 🙂
Since August I am now down 5 pounds. 🙂 🙂
I must admit I find myfitnesspal.com very helpful. (No, they are not paying me to say that, but they could ;)) It really does help me be accountable. I am much more aware of what I eat. It does all the calorie counting for me I just have to be
accurate honest about what I eat. I also like that if I want to eat more all I have to do is exercise. Sounds logical but until I started this process I never really put the two together in a productive way.
Last year when I did the 30 day shred every day and I didn’t lose a lot of weight, maybe 4 pounds. This was because my portion sizes to begin with were very large and then I would eat more as I justified it by saying I exercised, let me reward myself. 😦
Now I am a lot more knowledgeable I think it will truly become a lifestyle change rather than a temporary fad.
