So after a year of tracking my weight and calories (sporadically obviously) I have a net weight loss of 4.5 pounds. I now have a much greater empathy for my patients, especially my bariatric patients. I have roughly 40 pounds to lose. I cannot imagine looking down from the far end of 100 or more pounds.
This year I have high hopes for success. I've been eating well - last night I made some fabulous chicken and multi grain pilaf (see new links under my favorite recipes) and I've been going to the gym regularly since I now have friends to workout with.
I'm going to return to weekly Monday weight posts - I think it kept me honest - including my average daily calories and workout summery. Hopefully, the numbers will start moving - specifically in a downward direction :-).
