Weight Loss Journey Entry - Beginning Week 2

For the past week and a half, I used www.thedailyplate.com, I've been tracking everything I eat, everything down to even a little candy that I pick up, and I stick to the amount of calories I'm allowed for each day. I've cut back on how much I eat to fit within the calories. Since doing this I have lost eight pounds in a week and a half. Technically, I'm only supposed to be losing 2 pounds a week but I have managed to lose 3 the first half of a week and then another 5 lbs over the next week.

The only thing I am doing is sticking to the serving size on what I'm eating. Plus walking every day for 30 mins or at least trying. If I can not manage a full 30 mins one day I don't beat myself up over it I just try harder the next day.

Each time I update that website with my weight it cuts my calories back more so I guess its is its own way of helping you stick to your goal of losing 2 lbs per week. I am really finding it easy to stick to. And am not feeling like I'm cheating myself out of what I like I jsut cut back on the quantity. One the other hand everytime I update it withe an activity I did it gives me calories back LOL. tonight I washed the car and it took me like an hour and half to do that and I worked hard on the car it took 754 calories off for me now how cool is that LOL.
