Day 4: The Streak Continues

This is quite the streak!

I’ve been focused on:

  • staying under 1,800 calories
  • drinking at least 64 oz of water everyday
  • tracking everything

Three days in a row, I’ve hit my goals!!!  Those calories aren’t pretty- But it’s where I’m at right now.  I imagine in a year, I’ll be eating a whole lot different as I baby-step my way into a healthier life.

I am holding on to how proud I feel right now and I’m not going to let myself think it’s not good enough!

In the past, when I start a plan to lose weight, I shoot for 1,200 calories per day.  Truth is, normally I eat closer to 3,000-3,500 calories per day and maintain my weight between 190- 200 lbs. To cut down to 1,200 overnight is insane, and I can’t stick to that for a single day, let alone 4 days! 1,800 feels about right.  I don’t feel like I’m starving and I feel pretty good.

Maybe I’m just riding on the excitement of how motivated I am, and on my belief that I am absolutely ready to change, but I feel lighter already!!!!!
