I haven’t updated on my weight loss in a while because I kind of wanted to blow away people before I posted about it again. However, after a 10 days of eating Thanksgiving + ice cream + Thanksgiving leftovers + pies + cakes, I want to get back on track and get some accountability!
As of today, I am 8 pounds down from September 23rd which is no small feat after the junk food fest I’ve had the last two weeks and sedentary grad school semester I’ve had (which I’m fairly certain has also doubled the speed at which I’m prematurely graying). I am also one pants size down! I have noticed things are fitting a little bit looser, but it is definitely a far cry from fitting into college jeans. I have 17 more pounds to go to get to my wedding weight.
Weight loss tools:
- Using MyFitnessPal app (free) to collect my net calories from exercise and eating.
- Tracking my sleep and activity with Fitbit because it tracks my walking throughout the day and then gives or takes away calories in MyFitnessPal depending on how active I am.
- Using a Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid to track my water intake.
What I like about these tools is that they sync together!
I have been excited to try out the Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle with Smart Lid because I don’t drink enough water and it tracks my water intake. I still have a hard time intuitively figuring out when I am full or when I am thirsty still and I can already tell that this tool will help me with it! I love that the bottle with smart lid connects to my Fitbit because I feel weight loss tracking should be as easy as possible if I want to maintain the habits!
I love how technology has made everything so much to be healthy! I have been using MyFitnessPal off and on since we became married and I’m glad other tools have been catching up in the last few years. I’m excited to report more progress soon- keep me accountable in the mean time!
