1st week completed

Friday, January 04, 2013

Well my 1st week on Sparkpeople is completed. Ok I was not perfect. I definitely have
issues with eating in the evening. I always have. I was able to exercise 5 out of the 7 days but did not stay within my calorie range every day.
Oh well something to improve on right?
I started at 250lbs. I weighed in this morning at 245.4 so lost 4.6lbs.
Just think how good I could have done if I would have stayed within my ranges!
I know also when you first start changing your eating you lose more weight the first few weeks but I am happy with a loss.

My goals for the next week: Journal more-I started our journalling the 1st 3 or 4 days then nothing. My goal is also to stay within my calorie range all week--this is going to be a challenge for sure-1200 to 1500 calories sounded easy until I started logging everything I put into my mouth--that was an eye opener. I really never went crazy but had a couple of days around 1800 to 1900 calories.

The 8 glasses of water is easy because I have always drank at least 10 glasses of water daily. Besides my coffee in the morning I have always drank water all day. I do not like Soda because it is too sweet-blech.

I need to make a list of lower calorie foods and get to the grocery store this weekend.
Here's to better week! emoticon

    You are off to a great start!!! Keep it up, you can do it!!! Remember that nobody is perfect so if you are a little off once in a while, don't get discouraged, it is a process and we are all doing the best we can for that day. Tomorrow is a new day and we get to start fresh each day.

    I agree with FIT4LIFEIN13, you may want to adjust your limits. But 4.6lbs is awesome in the first week! Just remember, you're making a lifestyle change and so you can't expect to be perfect 100%. As long as you get back on the horse and don't give in, you'll be fine!

    Thanks for the words of advice. The 1200-1500 calorie range was what was given to me by SparkPeople when I put my current wt and goal wt in.

    Bravo! Good job! Keep up the good work. That is a lot of weight to lose in a week. If you can lose weight at 1600-1800 calories per day, which at your weight you should be able to, maybe you should up your calories limit. 1200-1500 seems like a drastic cut..you will have to lower your limit as you lose weight..and this is a long process, so don't sabatage yourself with unrealistic expectations. I speak from my own experience. emoticon
