Thank you all.
James, I’m supposed to be on 2000 to 2300 cals per day but usually am at around 1800 cals + or - 100 cals, rarely go over 1900. But even when I try to go over I do not find suitable things to eat but since I’m not hungry it does not matter.
As for the weigh in, I was not scared because I way myself every morning therefore I knew I lost weight.
Also I had really bad eating habits before, going to restaurant twice a day if not three times. This is a big change for me but is easier due to the fact that every meals are planned and I don’t need to cook that much, which will be the next steps once I have picked up better habits. I do find it easy for now (No decision to take, follow the plan :-) )
For the walking, I purchased a fitbit one, which is an activity tracker clip that links to my fitness pal that I use to keep track of ALL the food I eat for a given day and track my calorie in and out. And it keeps me honest about exercise, I try to walk 10,000 steps per day and if I look at it in the evening and it says less 4,000 I go out and walk for 30 to 40 minutes.
I wish you a good first weight in this week, but whatever the number on the scale, keep at it, we're at the beginning of a long journey and it's worth it.
Please let us know how your weight in went.
