Weight Loss Journey Week 8: General Update

Weight: 165.2

Heyo! I am very sorry for being so late with this post, it has been a crazy past few days. As a result, I didn’t really have anything planned for this week’s post, so I’m just going to give a general update.

Last week I met with my gym teacher. She told the class that if we wanted help with anything health wise she would like to meet with us, so I told her I wanted help losing weight and getting healthier and we set a time to meet.

And that was the end. Before I go any further, I would like to point out this was NOT a normal weekend. It was a family fun weekend, and I was not about to deprive myself during a family fun weekend. I was also not counting Weight Watchers Points anymore. I was finding that I wasn’t really losing weight doing the points. The fact that I wasn’t really watching my sugar intake probably had something to do with it, but I still wanted to try something different. So I got the MyNetDiary app.

I downloaded the app the night before I talked to my coach. During our conversation, she brought up things like a calorie deficit and counting carbs. Things that this app tracks for me. Coach was really impressed with this app. Everything she wanted me to do this app did. Today was the fourth full day of using this app, and I really like it. It has a huge food database, but it is also very easy to input my own foods. It tells me how much fat, carbs, and protein I should be getting and it tracks it. It also tells me how much weight I’ll lose in a week if I keep doing what I’m doing, and how many calories I should get in a day to lose the amount I want by the date I want. This app told me that getting to 140 by May 31st is actually not the healthiest option at this point, and I had to adjust it to a more healthy goal. Now I want to be 145 lbs by June 9th, my birthday.

So far I’ve only lost a few ounces, but I’ve also only used this app for a few days. Next week I’ll be able to give a better review of how it’s going.
