The weight loss portion of the study I am involved in began Wednesday night. It was NOT pretty. Since it started at 7:15 p.m., I had the pleasure of weighing in after 3 slices of pizza and 2 mugs of green tea... 194.8 WOW... Haven't seen those numbers in a long time and don't want to ever again.... On the plus side, it could spell a BIG loss next week... We'll see.
My first goal is 7% - so 176.5 pounds.... There is no deadline, but my calories are supposed to live in the range of 1300, fat grams 37 and I should work up to exercising 60 min/5x week.
Day one was a wake up call. I thought I ate well until I added it up - 1750 calories and 45 fat grams.... Today I will do better... For the week, however, I managed to walk the dog every day-2+ miles Mon - Wed and slightly less yesterday and this morning. I did my weights workout three times, elliptical, and a spin class. Exercise is good. I am committed... 2 days in and a lifetime to go...
I LOVE that I will weigh in every week. I LOVE that someone will review my food journal and ask questions. I LOVE that someone will care if I exercise. Accountability is my friend.
