Weekly Review: Nutrition and Weight Loss

Standard

So at the start of the week… I was 157. I started tracking my food (eating close to 1280 calories a day) and working out a lot. I progressively went down in weight to about 153 up until Thursday. Then, I got SO SICK of watching, and I splurged. I went back up to 155. Needless to say, I’m really frustrated. I feel that I let myself go because I didn’t feel like watching. I know I need to lose weight to be healthier… Cancer runs in both sides of my family, so I want to make sure I’m healthy so my risk of cancer is not as high. While there will always be a chance that I get cancer, I want to make sure I lower my risk as much as possible.

I ate pretty well, even though I didn’t do so well with my weight loss. I am only having 1 soda a day… yes ONLY. I used to drink a lot more soda, and I’ve been trying to cut down. I also have been trying to eat more fiber and protein. I still need to balance out my carbs and protein… I’m a carb girl… 

Things I need to improve on:

1. Tracking my calories… yes. I know I shouldn’t be tracking as strict as I am, but I have to for now.

2. increasing my protein intake.

Things I’m happy with:

1. Tracking my calories- yes this is here too. I am happy that I’m wanting to track my calories instead of just eating without knowing what I’m eating.

 

Onto next week!

  1. With your activity level I’m wondering if you’re plateauing because you’re not eating enough? I remember you saying that you used to work with a trainer. Could you do a single session with someone to set up your MFP (or whatever app you use) with custom settings? They would also probably tell you to stop weighing yourself daily- that way lies madness:-)
