So last Sunday when I weighed myself it had been nearly two full weeks since I'd weighed myself. Luckily, I hadn't gained anything. I had managed to lose only a little more than half a pound to 257.9 so hey, any loss is progress.
I've been struggling. I know what to do. I understand the concepts of losing weight. I just can't seem to make myself do it for more than a couple days at a time. That's why I haven't really been posting that much about weight loss. How many times can I say that I'm struggling before it gets boring and whiny?
But last Monday I got a Fitbit. I've been wearing it every day and night since. I haven't done much exercise-wise but it's nice to have that gauge. And I've tracked my calories every day since Tuesday. I've gone over what they recommend every day so far, but I've kept my calories below what I've burned. In fact, I'm not sure how I feel about their estimation. I understand that it's dynamic so the more I move the more calories I get to eat. But it changes on me all the time. And several days it's taken huge drastic drops (600+ calories) into ranges that I don't consider doable or healthy. It drops to 1000 calories a day and at one point yesterday it dropped to 750! I don't fucking think so. So I'm not quite sure what's going to happen. While I don't live and die by calories because I consider them estimations and guidelines, I do like being able to plan ahead. But the constantly changing calorie goal is extremely hard to plan for. I'll give the personalized setting another week, then I think I might try out the sedentary setting. If I can't get it leveled out and figured out then I'll probably just concentrate on keeping my intake lower than my burn. I don't know if I'll go back to using Lose It to track. I like the food logging on Fitbit better and I don't like the way the Fitbit syncs with Lose It. So the next few weeks will be a lot of experimentation to figure out what works best for me.
So I weighed myself this morning again. Making Sunday my weigh in day.
Weight: 256.0 lbs
Pounds to Goal: 6.0
Heck yeah! Almost 2 pounds this week even with my lack of exercise. Well that's it for now.
