I'm quite surprised it's recommending 2100 calories a day in order to lose weight.

I think it's because my BMI is higher and I'm doing a lot of exercise, it's very much about not losing weight too fast or you'll have trouble keeping it off. Like I said, it's not the best program but it is the one I've had the most success with, so I'll see how it goes

Oh also I've been eating much less sweets which might help!

Okay I am going to use this thread as a journal. I do have this program again because when I ACTUALLY STUCK WITH IT for a while it did work, but I'm going to put even more focus on not doing the bare minimum. So I need you guises help to keep me accountable and also offer any tips and what not. I have the program for my DS now instead of the computer because I actually lost my ipod/pedometer and that way I can bring it with me to school and stuff. So if any of you here have had successful weight loss and muscle building, please give me some feedback in this thread.

Every day I am going to try to update this with how much exercise I did and what I ate. I love food and I love sweets so I won't be giving those up. I know I would have a lot of success if I did but I would be miserable and go right back to it and put the pounds back on. So instead I am going to do my best to moderate. I am also going to take a page (or 20) from my psychology textbook on operant conditioning and find a reward to give myself a reward that I can only have after a week of consistently exercising and eating better. Not sure what it will be yet, but I'm thinking.

Also I will allow myself certain days like today when I am sick and all of that. I have my measurements because I know it's not all about the number and I will weight and measure myself every two weeks. I'll try to take pics too if I can

Day 1 - October 17th

Weight: 220 lbs
Measurements:
Tummy: 43 inches
Chest: 41 inches
Bum/Thighs: 46 inches

Those numbers are depressing but I guess that's part of the point. So tomorrow I will begin my updates! Again, feel free to give any feedback or suggestions on exercises and foods and such. Make sure to poke me if I suddenly stop updating and throw those measurements and numbers at me so I know now to quit!

Day 3 - October 19th

Here is my info according to MyFitnessPal:

Now it says I burned like 500 calories by jogging but that seems to be very much overestimating? But even with that aside, I ate around 1368 calories out of my allowance of 1480 with NO exercise. So hopefully I burned some. 5 weeks to 203 lbs would be pretty nice but again is probably being a bit too generous with me. I am in the green for all of my values which is good also!

Hopefully I am making some progress. Dinner was really good too!

So for exercise I did 40 minutes of jogging split up in to 15 minutes - 10 minutes - 15 minutes. Also about 15 minutes of weights but I didn't enter that in to MyFitnessPal because their weight thing confuses me.

I forgot to update this!

So Wednesday was a bad day. Went to the movies and stuff.

Yesterday (Thursday) October 22nd:

So pretty close to my calorie max. I was exhausted from jogging 2 15 minute jogging sessions but I forced myself to do a third and didn't regret it. Especially seeing as how I've already lost some weight, which makes me super pumped!

Let's home I can keep up the progress!

So it has been about 1 week and I am now 216 lbs and my tummy is 41". So 4 lbs and 2 inches in about a week! I should also note that I took my initial measurement in the morning naked without having eaten and I took this one at around 2 pm after having eaten and fully clothed, so hopefully it is actually a loss of 4 lbs and not just a bit of weight fluctuation!
