Dieting Stats

So I started this low calorie diet thing. I have discovered this week that I take in way too much sodium. I also realized that meals I thought I was eating that were “healthy” actually were higher in calories than I anticipated.

I had a supervisor once explain Diet basics like this:

You have a certain BMR rate, the rate your body burns calories just sitting and sleeping, no activity at all. If you eat less calories than your BMR rate, than you will lose weight. If you take in more calories than your BMR rate you will gain weight.

I discovered I have been taking in 3X my BMR rate. I have not been active at all. It’s no wonder that I have been gaining weight.

With this new website I am on a 1760 calorie diet. If I exercise than the calorie count goes up.

This is what one meal at Taco Bell was costing me, and that was eating lite:

Yellow= individual calories Green= total calories

I have been getting wise real fast. I am having vegetable soup tonight instead!

This is where I am now, starting this diet.

My BMI... Obese

On Saturday I will weigh myself again and see where I am. I will try to post some stats. I really like this diet.

My cousin Jamie inspired me to do this… She was honest enough to post her weight when she started her diet. I can be honest enough to post my before pictures…taken 5 min ago. I can’t believe I am doing this <cringe>
