Fit Bit shows why I have a Fat Butt
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
I've lamented forever about why I'm not losing weight. I've stayed within a pound or two of the same weight for over a year even though I've stayed within my calorie ranges and I've been trying to exercise more. I got a Fitbit last week. I synced it to Sparkpeople so it not only shows my steps and my calories for the day but it also shows me the calories I've burned.
Even on my best days I'm not getting enough steps in. And then there are the bad days where the weather is too bad to get out and walk or I am having a bad day
and I get almost no steps in. Well a few hundred compared to the thousands it takes to burn off a pound. Most days I'm eating around 1200 calories. On weekends it may go up to 1300 or 1400. I really don't want to limit my calories any further. So that means I need to exercise more. I'm trying. I really am but it's not always feasible. When I'm able to get out and walk I'm walking over a mile now and my goal is to make it all the way around the park this summer (3 miles) like I used to do every day. I guess I should just be happy with where I am. I know I'm getting healthier and I'm getting stronger. I should be content with that. But I'm still 29 pounds from goal.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
