In my last blog I wrote about testing out NutriSystem for 2 weeks. NutriSystem was a fail for me so I am going to use the calories in, calories out method.
I have lost a total of 42 pounds in the past by counting calories and exercising. Unfortunately, I have gained back about 25 of those pounds that were lost. I stopped counting my calories and stopped exercising and the weight went back on quite quickly!
As of today, I am at 192 pounds and I am only 5′ 1″! I have about 60 pounds that I want to lose. I began my calorie counting today and have been exercising for about a month now.
To track my calories, I use http://www.myfitnesspal.com. You can find the myfitnesspal app for your tablet or phone. It is a database full of thousands of foods. You can type in a food or scan the bar code of a food item and log the amount of calories eaten. (For my weight loss, my dietitian and doctor both said to eat no less than 1,200 calories a day).
I will do my best to keep you updated every 2 weeks on my weight loss.
Remember, it does get better!
