Day #: 8
Last Week’s Change of the Week: At least 10,000 steps daily
This Week’s New Change of the Week: Exercise at least 2 times a week (30 min exercise session minimum)
Current Weight: 231 lbs (105 kg)
Total Weight Lost: 0 lbs (0 kg)
Current Mood: A bit disappointed, but not depressed. Instead, I’m feeling determined.
Okay, I’ll be honest…I’m a little disappointed, annoyed, and a little pissed, actually. The reason? I didn’t lose any damn weight this week!
And, I thought I had a pretty good week! I got in at least 10,000 steps everyday this past week, I stayed within my caloric plan on the FitBit app, and I made sure to drink at least 64 fl oz water everyday. Sigh.
But, I’m not going to complain too much about this, because although I didn’t lose any weight this week, I also didn’t gain any weight. So, this week I was able to effectively maintain my weight, which means that if I want to lose weight, I’m going to have to make a few more changes. Apart from my 10,000 steps, 64 fl oz a day, and my new goal of exercising twice a week, I’ve realized that I’m going to have to make a few tweaks to my meal plan.
I track all my foods and calories on my FitBit app and I just think it’s great and super convenient! It’s on my phone and I can practically access it wherever I go. You know, I can just go on and on about how much I love my FitBit charge and the app, but like I said in my previous post, I’ll have to make a separate post about that.
On the FitBit app, you can enter your current weight and you can also enter your goal weight (now, it’s important to have a realistic goal weight, and if you’re unsure of what a healthy weight for your sex, age, and height is, I suggest you check this website out). Once you input those two weights into the FitBit app, you can then choose how quickly you would like to lose weight: Easier (250 calorie deficit), Medium (500 calorie deficit), Kinda Hard (750 calorie deficit), and Harder (1000 calorie deficit).
I was on a Kinda Hard plan with a 750 calorie deficit, but this week I will switch to a Harder plan with a 1000 calorie deficit. You can see this below:
I think it’s definitely doable. And, hopefully the scale will reflect the changes I’ve made so far.
Below, is my update photo. Not sure if I look any different, but you can be the judge of that.
