To lose 1 pound a week, we need to somehow cut out 3,500 calories over a 7 day period.
You can choose to cut out 500 calories a day from your diet for 7 days...
...split the difference with burning 250 calories a day with exercise and eating 250 calories less each day.
The choice is yours!
This year I am still counting calories and exercising...but I am being a bit more lenient with myself. I've started eating more calories (my dietitian would be happy to hear that) and I don't feel guilty if I don't get in one hour of exercising every single day.
I was hoping that this would be a year of just maintaining what I had lost last year but as a result of my unexplainable scale jump back in Jan. I now have 20 lbs. to lose AGAIN.
I am happy to report that I have lost 2 lbs. even after indulging in a box of Valentine's chocolates. No change in my measurements. How did you make out this month?
