I’ve decided, at the ripe old weight of 190 pounds, to try and lose a few, 15 or so, pounds. So my target weight is 175 pounds for now.
As of this morning I’m at 186 pounds.
My method is basically to try and consume less calories than my body requires, so I’m going to try and cut snacks out, and try and eat a bit less at meals.
I read somewhere that a pound of fat is pretty much equivalent to 3500 calories (kCal), so if I cut my calorie intake by 500 a day, I should lose about a pound a week. Basically, eat half a burrito rather than the whole thing, etc.
I’m planning on weighing in every Thursday or Friday morning. Here’s my first two data points.
01/03/2008 189 pounds
01/10/2008 186 pounds
Wish me luck!
