Goal! - Finally THERE
10-04-2009, 05:30 PM
I started at 177 and set a goal of 152. part way through, I changed it to goal of 147 which seemed better at my 5'6".
today i weighed in at 142.6, so i am officially THERE.
It took 23 weeks on 1200 cal (which is closer to 1500 when you count all the veggies).
Six weeks ago, I added the body bugg (counts calories you expend each day and gives you a place to log your food). That got me through the last 12 pounds.
I think I am ready for maintenance or may decide to see if I can go a few pounds lower.
Adding the body bugg has made a big difference.
It provides an accountability on a daily basis to say "get up and move" and "do you really want to eat that?"
my plan is to burn average of 2200 cal per day and try to keep calories at 1500-1900 and see what happens.
appreciate any advice on how to maintain.
