With the help of tracking everything in My Fitness Pal and a well-planned grocery store trip, I was able to lose 4 pounds in a little less than a week. I didn't exercise much, but got in what I could. I'm still plugging away at C25K.
Weekends are always a challenge. We're going to a hockey game tonight so I'm trying to plan around that.
I'm using the guidance on My Fitness Pal for daily calorie goals to lose 2 pounds per week. That's about 1200 calories per day. And it's extremely difficult. If I exercise, I can have more calories to support what I burn. I may wind up dropping back to aiming to lose 1 pound per week. Hey, this girl likes to eat.
