Thumbs up Week 1 bodybug

So I just finished my 1st official week using the bodybug and tracking all my calories in as well as my calories out. Here is what I found 1st this truly does work for me. I have been stuck at 203 for 2 months and was getting frustrated by my lack of progress. I have been completely honest with my food journal and all the food I have eaten. My problem was estimating how many calories I was actually burning on any given day. So this week I logged everything every piece of food every drink everything I measured, weighed, and logged everything. 1st thing I found was that I was probably under estimating what I was actually eating. 2nd I am burning more calories even whle at rest than I thought. This week I took a staycation and spent a lot of time with my boys and my fam . But I also pushed harder than a normal week including testing my max lift and doing lots of cardio plus getting my boys out everyday and being active with them. My calories burned to my calories consumed always showed a deficit and I estimated by using these numbers that I would be down at least a pound. I was wrong I lost 2 pounds and I am now 201. I had to purchase some new clothing because my summer clothes no longer fit even with a belt. A year ago i was a size 40 waist I am now a size 34. I My recomittment to this process becasue of this new program has reinvigorated my excitment to get healthy. In the end we all have to be accountable to ourselves and if we want to be as healthy and happy as we can be for ourselves and our families we all have to find our own way during this process. This a lifestyle change it is not just about losing weight it is about balance in our lives. Wishing you all happiness and great health in your future.
