Well I’m doing it, y’all! Down 10 lbs so far from about 3 weeks ago, and I’ve lost 2.5″! This is exciting news.
The best part about all this is that I’ve been eating more and I know that the food I’m fueling my body and mind with is of good quality and is mostly wholesome. I’m not being super stringent with myself – I did have a brownie Sunday and today, but based on the calories I’ve consumed both days, I could afford it.
I’m learning to track all of my calories using the myfitnesspal app. It’s really making me conscious of the things I’m eating, and how often (or infrequent) I’m eating. Plus at the end of the day or throughout the day, I can check my overall nutrient levels so I can see if I need to go easy on the carbs, or pack on the protein during the last few meals of the day. It’s a pretty cool app that helps you stay accountable for what you’re eating. And really, that’s what I need the most… Accountability.
