“Weight Loss Wednesday”: Week 1 Check-In

So I know I said I would start on a Sunday with these, but that was before I had a few (read: an entire week, and still ongoing) bad days. That was also before I realized Fitbit sends a weekly progress report every Tuesday for Monday through Sunday! Weee! This also made for a corny “Weight Loss Wednesday” tag. Mwah hah hah hah…

As you can see, I only lost half a pound last week! Boo! I’ve reassessed my pumping output and see that I’m closer to 40oz a day rather than 50oz (which is upsetting but this post ain’t about that). So I’ve dropped a whole 200 calories from my daily total, effective Monday. We shall see what Sunday’s weigh-in brings with my lowered calorie count…

The second window shows my total calories per day and, as you can see, I never went over. Which is good. And also probably the only reason I lost any weight. The first window, though…my percentages per day are way skewed. Interestingly, not enough carbs overall…not surprisingly, way too much fat, and not enough protein! I’ve never had enough protein in my diet before, I don’t think. I don’t eat fish, and I don’t cook much (or didn’t used to before the last few weeks)…so even though I’m a huge fan of chicken and beef, it doesn’t find its way into my daily diet that often unless my husband is home for dinner at the same time as me (Fridays and Saturdays, three times a month).

I’m hoping to gradually change some of these statistics over time!

Until next week… 🙂
