After I figure out what my calorie goal will be I would love to join you all on here. This looks like an excellent way to help stay real.

Ok I decided on a calorie goal. Thanks to all you who commented on my post. I feel less overwhelmed and feel good about my goal. I am going to go for 1700 calories a day.

Since I havent counted calories successfully before, I plan to keep that as my calorie goal for two whole weeks before I get to try to tweak it. I have no idea what is really going to work. But I figure that without a decent trial period I shouldn't let myself get all crazy and try to change it before I give it a chance.

Today so far I have eaten 1155 calories.

I think that sounds good, too, ma.

When I was beginning to lose weight last summer, I ate about 1400-1500 on most days, but if I worked out or ran for more than, say, an hour, I would add calories (a serving of protein, then a carb, as needed, up to 300 calories for, say, two hours of moderate to intense workout). I kind of let my body tell me how much to add. But once I started running more than about 9 miles, my body wasn't an accurate indicator, because the feeling of depletion often wouldn't show up until the next day. That's when I got the Fitbit, and that really helped.

I see I neglected to update yesterday -- it ended up 1541 calories logged, 1954 calories burned, for a deficit of 413. Not bad for being home all day, I guess. I have a 3202 calorie deficit over the last 6 days, avg. 533, which is my goal, so I'm right on target.

Today:
Early morning breakfast: Kashi GoLean, 41 g, Skim Milk, 4 oz: 152 cal
7:45 morning snack: Morningstar Farms breakfast patty, one pear: 201 cal



Total so far: 353

Queen Sarah -- how do you figure your calorie deficit? Is it just cals burned minus cals consumed? How do you know how many cals you've burned? I guess I'm asking which site do you use for that info. lol Thx.

Was hungry when I went to bed last night but didn't eat. Woke up at 5am w/a horrible, horrible sinus headache AND starving hungry. Waited until 9am to eat and am starving hungry right now and it's only 11:30am.

b: h.n. cherrios, banana, milk, coffee - 430
l: l.f. cottage cheese, pineapple, leftover homemade fries - 350
s: banana, cup of spiced tea w/2 tspn honey - 150
d: chicken, rice, broccoli (half my plate was brocoli lol), small piece of homemade coffee cake - 600

Total: 1500 or so

I have been counting calories; 1200-1400 per day.

I walk 5-7 miles per day, six days per week, burning 450-620 calories each time.

The past few weeks I have been enjoying the swoosh effect Last week I lost 3 pounds and this week I have been measuring 0.5 less each day.

Happy to be here

loose seal Have you tried going sugar/gluten/grain free? -- I have avoided all above for 6 weeks and I never feel hungry.

Please read the book called "Wheat Belly", it is a REAL eye opener.

Sum38 -- no and likely won't, mostly because I'm not fixing/buying separate food for myself. I usually have more protein at b-fast . . .usually a 1 egg/2 white omelet . . . which holds me for several hours. Didn't have time today and went with the cereal and fruit. That almost never sticks with me. Had I eaten some cheese with it I probably wouldn't have gotten so hungry so soon.
