Another week passes

Saturday, April 13, 2013

Ok, not a particularly good week but ok over all. There was no weight loss but then again there was no gain either. Why? Well maybe the fact that I couldn't resist going into the cupboard and picking at was available in there. I could have done worse and this week I know I can get back on track. Exercise helps and so does sticking to my plan. I am out of town for work this week so need to make healthy choices when I go out. We will see what happens. emoticon

My first week

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Ok. I am back on and finished my 1st week. How did I do???? Gained 700gms. Not a good start I think but we will stick with it and see how it goes. I do feel that I have eaten more this week as I am converting from a points base to a kilojoule/calorie based so this may be the reason why. I will see what happens next week when I weigh myself. hopefully it will balance itself out.

  People often gain a little weight when they begin a new exercise routine. Don't give up, and remember that muscle weighs more than fat. Good luck.

Ok here goes

Sunday, March 03, 2013

This is my first few days and I feel like I am doing something wrong. I feel like I am eating too much is this normal? I am used to counting points so don't tend to seem to be eating as much. I must admit I am not hungry and skipped lunch today as I was given a couple of biscuits at someone's place. I know but I don't want to offend them. It was final visit with them. I am from NZ and we work in Kilojoules so I am wondering if I am converting the calories correctly? I am supposed to be on 6,000 KJs which works out to be about 1,400 calories, is this right? Hopefully I will get the hang of it and it will make sense when I weigh in on Saturday. emoticon

    Thanks for that. Yes I am still trying to lose weight about 5 kg so is great to know that I am on the right track. It is just hard getting your head around it when you work in different measurements.

    I'm not from NZ but 1,400 calories/day would make sense for maintenance or even loss depending on your height.

Here we go again

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Ok here I am. After reading a new book "lose Weight for Life" I have decided to stop counting points and going back to counting kilojoues/calories. This seems to make me not have such an obsession with food. I am going to try this and see how it goes again. I am determined to hit my goal so here goes.

    Yes I have used this before but now I have a better understanding I think it is going to work.

    Use the nutrition tracker. It will help you count the calories, carbs, fats, and proteins you eat everyday.
