14 days & 1001 exercise minutes
Good news: I met my exercise goal for the month of August already!!! Yippee for me! I have been working out like a fiend because it is summer and I have the time since I am off work. I am also so newly banded that I just want to get the show on the road and jump start getting fit.
Bad news: I haven't lost a single pound in those 14 days. (Yep, wiping the tears from my cheeks as I type.)
Where to go from here: well, I am going to try and eat a little more. (It just seems counter-intuitive that I actually need to eat more calories than I am. Duh..... eat less to lose weight....not the other way around.) I have been trying to stay around 1200-1400 calories but several people have said that I need to eat more. I looked this up on the internet and apparently for my current weight and activity level, I should be having approximately 1600 and then as I lose keep bringing the total number of calories down. For my goal weight (130-135), it said to eat about 1400. www.heathlyweightforum.org
Am I crazy?? Does this sound at all right?
