I have remained the same weight for months now despite quite a bit of exercise, so I decided to start counting calories. All week I maintained a deficit of a minumum of 300 calories a day, and often around 500-600 calories a day.
And ..... I'm 2 lbs down from where I was last Saturday morning!!
Yeah, I know ... 2 lbs is nothing to get excited about, and could just be water weight, but it's been months since I've been the weight I am today, so I'm pleased ... it's a start.
I'm tracking my calories (and other nutrients) on FitDay ... and has that ever been an eye opening experience!! I've pinpointed several "problem areas" with my diet, and have been working to fix them. I plan to keep logging my diet and exercise there for at least a few more weeks to help me become more aware of where my food intake difficulties are.
