Counting Away

Remember when I said I was giving up on Weight Watchers and starting calorie counting?

Well there was a lot of talk in the comments about not getting enough calories and other things of that sort. Well, I don’t want anyone to worry. I consulted several different calorie counting websites and they were all in the range of 1,200-1,400 calories.

I’ve been staying within those numbers this past week and I’m happy to report that I’m down 3lbs this week! And that was without working out. (No worries I’m not going to stop working out. Just wasn’t feeling it this week)

I’m really liking calorie counting so far. I really feel like I’m more aware of what I’m eating than I was on Weight Watchers because I became lax sometimes knowing that I had extra points plus that I could use. It is weird having to count fruits and veggies again, but I’m getting back into the habit of it.

I really feel like this is going to work and help me get to my goal weight. And I’m getting excited about losing weight again. I was in a major rut and this seems to really be what I needed!

B-Fry has also joined me in this calorie counting too. Its fun having him do it too. And definitely helps with the support. Now we just need to start working out together!

I cannot wait to see how this continues to go!

What’s new and exciting in your life?
