This is going to be lots of information compared to my normal post so bare with me please. Taking care of a sick husband yesterday and napping through me off. I hate napping during the day but I guess I needed it. These pictures are of my first day of counting calories.
Of course I only had 1 and taking a picture of it on the scale would of made more sense but I am still in learning process.
Breakfast pretty much is the same thing which I guess is good. Makes counting calories a little easier.
Not the smartest move. The roll alone was 168 calories. Boy oh boy how I love the German bread.
My calories totaled 1,313 & I burned 604. Not bad for a first day I hope. Yesterday I consumed 1412 & burned 502.
My new favorite snack is anything with peanut butter. I am not safe with peanut butter. If you gave me the jar and a spoon I promise you will get back an empty jar. Now I remember why I stopped buying it. Maybe for a snack..peanut butter & ice cream. Sounds yummy!
Counting calories has made me think twice about the things I chose to put in my mouth. Hopefully this is the key I need to get the scale moving again.
No this is not my goal weight & clearly not my weight. I just felt the need to update my scale picture for my weekly weigh ins. Anyways I lost 1.5 pounds from my last weigh in. On a side note though I didn't weigh in last week because I was in Turkiye so I guess I could always divide the number between both weeks. Then it would make more sense..lol Either way seeing the scale move and to a new number I haven't seen in many years is nice. It is a very good mood lifter. Many thanks to Marcelle who showed me counting calories really isn't that hard. Seems like I am the type of person that gets in a routine and I hate to change it. Well maybe I just needed to change it. Guess we will see after next weeks weigh in. I have 2.9 pounds to go and I am normal again. So close. Hopefully I will be there soon! Once I am normal I will have lost 40 pounds so I will post a new picture.
