I have been quite busy this week and didn’t have time to do the daily posts that I would have liked to do. However, I have to be realistic and admit that life comes first and I probably won’t be able to update everyday. However, I will make it my goal to have at least one new post a week.
My weight loss has been rolling as a pace that I am pleased with. I do not want to lose the weight too quickly because I worry that it won’t stay off. I also have a horrific fear of having weird, loose, saggy skin in places if I don’t allow it time to keep up with me. That being said, I have lost about 3 pounds in the last 10 days. What have I been doing? Remember, I am now the anti-diet. I don’t want to do Atkin’s or pills or Sensa or anything that is going to be a TEMPORARY solution because then my weight loss and my health will be exactly that, TEMPORARY.
I have been using the amazing program at www.myfitnesspal.com. If you are trying to lose any amount of weight, or if you are just looking to get healthy and be more aware of what you are putting in your body, I HIGHLY recommend this program. It is FREE! Free is the best. You are able to log your food and water intake, as well as your exercise. When you put in your weight, you can choose a goal weight if you want to lose and how much you would like to lose per week. (1 or 2 pound options… no more because it isn’t healthy!) If you are happy with your weight and just looking to maintain it, they have a maintenance setting as well. It will then calculate your recommended calorie intake and break it down into carbs, fats and protein. There are a few different settings that you can modify.
One of the things I also LOVE about this program is the support system and message boards. The community is so incredibly supportive and will cheer you on for your successes and boost you up when you feel down. They also make it really convenient on the go with apps for your smartphones! The app is simple and easy to use.
Check it out! You won’t regret it! 🙂
