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
