Numbers on the Scale

I did it.  I stepped on the scale and luckily the numbers weren't too bad.  I can't remember when exactly I weighed in (Friday or Saturday) but the numbers on the scale read 194.  Not too bad considering I started at 203 then lost some and gained them back so now I'm back down. 
This weekend wasn't too bad.  I haven't been counting calories but I have cut back on how much I eat.  That's good enough for me.  Today I will start counting calories again and I'm hoping I don't have a hard time sticking to it. 
I also found that "My FitnessPal" absolutely ROCKS.  I mean I love not having to look up every single ingredient to log it in.  It's great and I'm looking forward to utilizing it to help me get to where I need to be:)  I have set it up so that I "lose" 1 and 1/2lb a week and my daily calories are now 1470 without any exercise done, but I do want to start getting in some exercise at least once this week.  We'll see how I do. 


  1. Good on you. Sometimes getting on the scale is the hardest part. Exercise is so hard to fit in - I find that if I try and be on my feet more throughout the day, it makes such a difference! Kat :-)

  2. Yes, it is. That's what I have been doing the past 3 weeks. Trying to be on my feet and move more around the house, and it really does make a difference, I find that I'm a bit more energetic throughout the day.
