Operation Cute for Colorado: Day 5... a pound a day?
Friday, November 11, 2011
Well 204.2 today... I've officially lost a pound a day since I began Operation Cute for Colorado! That's a bad of cat food!
I know they say 1 to 2lbs a week is safe but it's not like I've been eating WAY less than I should... 1300 to 1400 calories a day... my calorie range is 1200 to 1560! The last 10 lbs I put on rather quickly and rather recently so I'm wondering if maybe the pound a day is because of that or not! I'm happy the scale is going down I just don't want to lose too fast because I know that can be bad for you. I also realize that I went from eating 2400 to 2800 calories a day to eating 1300 to 1400! Any comments?
In other news I ate about 1450 calories today... i surprised myself... I got off work about an hour later than I was expecting so I didn't eat lunch until 2:00 so I was starving by the time I was able to eat. I decided to got to chic-fil-a... I got a 12 piece nugget which is 400 calories including the sauce... A side salad with fat free honey mustard which is 60 calories for 1/2 the package and I ONLY ATE 1/2... I did eat the croutons though... I'm a sucker for croutons!!! I didn't even want the fries which was good... That scale moving I think is my motivation right now!
Tomorrow is the real test we have a HUGE sale tomorrow... I can't leave for lunch and I'm there for 12 hours... to be honest I'm just shooting for eating small portions of whatever the store buys for us and working out like a mad woman the next few days. I have to be realistic if I can stay around 1600 to 1800 calories tomorrow I will be satisfied!
