At the beginning of the year one of my goals was to lose 15 pounds. Ha. I’ve gained 9. I’ve never gained weight like this – that is, this quickly – in my life. I think it’s a combination of factors – age, hormones, medication, and lack of exercise. And probably too much ice cream.
As soon as we get off daylight savings time this weekend, I can start walking in the mornings again. Right now it’s too dark too late – the sun comes up around 7:35 this morning, and that’s when I have to be in the shower.
I got signed back up with the Daily Plate yesterday. It’s affiliated with Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong webpage, and I’ve used it to track calorie intake before. According to their calculations, I should be eating about 1750 calories/day to lose 1 pound/week. Yesterday I went over by a bowl of cereal. I’ll do better today.
My starting weight is 184.5. I’ll keep track of the results here.
