I have been using The Daily Plate to log my food. I like it. But, I think the recommended calorie amount for me is a bit high. They recommend 2,016 calories. I eat less on the days that I don't work. I am trying to get my calories down to around 1600. I don't want to go too low. But, I still want to lose. lol. I guess I am going to have to play with my calories and see what works for me.
I can see little signs that tell me that I am losing weight. For one, I don't feel like I swallowed a watermelon anymore. I don't have that bloated feeling. I also can tell a difference in the way my clothes fit. I wore a pair of jeans today that used to be so tight that I had trouble bending over or sitting down when I wore them. Today, they were actually comfortable. I can't wait until weigh in on Sunday. I feel thinner! ;)
So, I have been logging my food for a week or so now. I think I have got that down. Now I am working on doing some soul searching. I need to figure out where I am emotionally right now. I feel good because I am being proactive about my weight problem. But, I still feel something else...I'm not really sure what it is. It's a sort of a fearful, anxious and excited feeling. I know that sounds totally crazy. I just don't know what to call it. Yet. I think blogging about it will help me start to figure it out.
I'm not a writer...so, please forgive me for any grammer problems. I have been sort of scared to just blog about how I feel. I read some really well written blogs and think...man, they are so good. But, I finally decided today that this is my blog. I need to use it for me. And not be afraid of being "graded" on my writing abilities or the lack there of.
So, to my current followers (and any there may be in the future)..."thanks for bearing with me."
