My progress has been slow, but I have lost 3.4 lbs in four weeks. I have had days with too much beer. MyFitnessPal is helpful, but I have the occasional day that I blow my calorie budget.
Due to peer pressure, I’m now using MyFitnessPal on my phone to track my intake and exercise.
I haven’t given up beer, but I’ve cut back and fit it in to my calorie budget.
In any case, I’m hungry all the time.
Yes, I’m tracking all my calories again. I don’t yet have a specific calorie goal, but I’ll get there. Just writing it down has kept things in check. I have had a 3000-calorie day, but I’ve also had a 1000-calorie day. When I wasn’t tracking, I probably had several 5000+ calorie days.
I’m weighing again every morning, but I’ll just be posting my weekly and monthly averages. I’ve updated the weight page.
I gave up beer. It was supposed to be a month, but a social engagement enticed me to have a couple. That’s okay, I’m tracking the calories of the beer also – and limiting it greatly.
I’ve already had a happier digestive system than I did before.
Diane and I have been a bit more active. We’ve been walking the dogs more frequently. We bike-pool to work on the tandem most days. On Sunday, we took the tandem and trailer on an errand run in parts of town I don’t normally ride. Those areas have a reputation for not being bike friendly, but we had no issues.
Due to Diane having an earlier schedule, I just go to work early. I went in a 6:30 this morning – which meant I got to leave at 3:00. That’s not a bad deal.
