For the past 5 weeks I have been entering my calories on the Daily Plate on www.livestrong.com. I am pretty competitive with myself, so anytime I am counting calories or points, IT IS ON! After a couple of weeks, I realized that I could eat more if I exercised more to burn some of the calories I was eating ( who woulda thunk it?). I started walking in the morning. After a couple of weeks of just walking, that got boring so I decided to spice it up with some music. I downloaded some cool songs for a work out playlist on my i-pod. "boom boom pow" by the Black Eyed Peas is my favorite! I mean, anything with a clapping machine is pretty much gonna land on my fave list, and this one is front and center right now!
FYI- I programmed my calories on the Daily Plate to lose 2 pounds per week. After 5 weeks, I am pleased to report I am down about 10 pounds! I HIGHLY recommend it!
