Weigh-in January 28: Just as predicted


Yesterday, I predicted that with my calorie intake for the week, I should lose about half a pound. That was based on my calorie balance for the week -- I was 1,360 over the intake Lose It recommended for me to lose one pound. I lost 0.4.  Pretty close to what I predicted.

I am really happy with my month's progress.  On January 4, I weighed 184.8, and 4 weeks later, I'm down 2.4 pounds -- just over half a pound a week.  That isn't huge, exciting weight loss, but it has been steady, and more importantly, it has been pretty easy. I haven't felt stressed out or pressured to be perfect.

All I have been doing is following Jillian's advice, the advice that appears on the bottom of each page in the web version of my blog:
"Count your calories, work out when you can, and try to be good to yourself. All the rest is bulls**t." -- Jillian Michaels at BlogHer '07

  1. What I see when I read what you have written is that you are focusing on the daily habits. And I think that is KEY.

    1. It is definitely a better mindset than getting caught up in trying to control the scale -- if I control my behavior, the scale takes care of itself.

  2. Nice job, Jen. 2.5 lbs/month will add up quickly. Hope you are feeling better!
