I want to be fitter again
At last after three months I have lost a decent amount of weight (2lbs) and so has my daughter!! As many of you know I have been struggling so i looked at the amount of calories I am eating in a day knowing that an excess of 3500 calories in one week would cause you to put on one pound, only 500 extra a day (one packet of pasta and sauce and 1 Mulerlights yogurt as an example). As someone near to target my needs would be much less than when I started but I was still eating the same amount of food. This evening I took my food diary to my consultant and as usual she said "that is brilliant well done" I then turned it over and revealed my "brilliant" day diary was 2200 calories. She was shocked!! I then showed her my new diary which wasn't greatly different other than having less free foods (hardly noticable) but what an amazing difference in weight. Perhaps we should have slightly different guidlines when we are approaching target or have been stuck having lost a reasonable amount of weight already. SW is a brilliant plan and i will continue but I will check calories once a week at random to check what my intake is like.Sorry for the long post but sooooooo pleased the weight has begun to shift again.
