Weird… yes, I’ve been consistently gaining weight! I had reached 178.8 and right now I am at 181.2 huh! Weird! again I am not going to freak out but I must admit I am intrigued! I am working hard, really, I am not making excuses to myself, I am not cheating, I am not even allowing any kind of deception in my brain, I count every little bit of thing that goes into my mouth! I am meticulous about it! and when “in doubt” I just go to the higher possible amount of calories when I track my food, for example if I eat a small bite of a string cheese I just record like I a 1/4 of a string of cheese, if I eat a thin slice of carrot cake (like a did yesterday) I just go ahead and track it like a “slice of carrot cake” in myfitnesspal! and act accordingly during the day!
Yesterday, regardless of the “carrot cake and pound cake” -I know it sounds bad! But you have to believe me when I say I had super thin slices of them- I had guests over for cake and coffee so I didn’t want to “not eat” with them, I had to make “that” my breakfast and I eliminated other calories during the day so these were my numbers:
|Your Daily Goal||1,678||230||55||62|
|*You’ve earned 478 extra calories from exercise today|
As you can see I only ate 1372 calories for the day… then I burned 478 so I “supposedly” had a net calorie intake of 894 calories, the “myfitness pal” thing has been saying “if everyday is like today you’ll be 169 pounds in 5 weeks” it’s been 3 already and I am at 181.0 pounds! -sigh- I keep trusting and of course I’ll keep doing this, there’s no choice! I can’t go back! so… I am working, working, working! It would sure be nice to see the numbers go down! But I guess it’ll happen over time! It would just be nice to be able to reach my initial goal which was to lose 10 pounds in 5 weeks and now that’s far from a reality… I still have to lose 8 pounds and I am almost at the 5 week mark! -sigh-
Ok… enough of my pity party! Have a great weekend!
