Clueless

So I’ve written this post in my head several times this week. It never sounds nice and I feel ignorant so I keep putting it off. First of all, as much as I love my at home team I’m completely jealous of the Y teams (yes, I know I’m not supposed to want what others have). I read about their workouts and counting calories and think “I want to be able to do that.” But honestly, I don’t have the first clue about dieting or nutrition. See I’m one of the lucky people who hasn’t struggled with weight all of my life . When I got married the first time at 21 my dress was a size 2 &had to be taken in. 6 years later I had my first child. I put on some weight over the years but I was still only about a size 6.  After my divorce I put on more weight but I still was only a size 10 (in my world, clothes size matters, not the scale). 10s are much easier to shop for than 2s so that was okay. Fast forward…2ND marriage (it’s FABULOUS by the way), a set of twins and many years later I’ve managed to make my way to a size 16 & 200lbs. That’s why I applied for RBL. I don’t have a clue about how to lose weight. I’m doing the at home workouts and the C25K runs but I feel like I should be doing more. I started a KETO diet to help kick the carb/sugar habit. I chose that because I have a friend who has had great success with it AND because I don’t know anything about choosing healthy food or counting calories. I don’t really know if I’m losing weight but I’m not hungry and I’ve been able to cut out sweets, Cokes, pasta etc…without much effort. My current debate is when to get back on the scale…

  1. If you have a smart phone I would highly suggest downloading the Myfitnesspal App. It is an awesome app for monitoring what you eat. you enter all your info like weight, height, activity level, etc and it will calculate what your daily calorie intake should be. then when you enter what you eat it will break the food down so you can see how much carbs/protein/fats you are eating. it is an awesome way to see what and how you eat.
