My Points

Ok, thirteen days at 30 points a day for a possible 390 points. I missed my water intake goal two days, so my total is 370.

I think what helped me with calories is adopting the "range" mentality. Most days I was below the bottom of my range, but when we ate out or had a dinner that was difficult to calculate, I felt more comfortable having a range.  It made the process less tedious.  

The app I use calculates your calorie limit based on the program you choose- maintain, lose .5 lb a week, lose 1 lb a week , lose 1.5 lbs a week, etc.  I based my range on the limits it gave me when I chose the 1 lb a week program and the 1.5 lbs a week program.  Does that make sense?

So how did you all do?

  1. Way to go Mindy!!! I honestly only got about 1/2 of my points. I am not sad or discouraged by that though because it was still a huge improvement, especially with all that was going on. (We moved into my Mom's house this weekend until we close on our own house next month.)

    Mindy, I agree with your calorie range idea. I think I do better when I give myself a little wiggle room. I didn't track calories this time but I think it is definitely going on my list the next go around. Are we doing another one?
