Week One: How Do I Measure Up? Get a Baseline of How You are Doing!
How do you measure your success if you don’t know where you are? This is why you need an initial weigh-in. Use the weekly weigh-in sheet to track your weight and see if you are maintaining. If your weekly sheet begins climbing, determine why and how you can prevent it from happening in the upcoming weeks.
You can also prevent extra pounds from creeping up by viewing your current eating habits and how they affect your weight. That is why a food record can be a critical piece of the puzzle, check out this website www.thedailyplate.com. Getting a closer look will help you make small changes adjustments over the next few weeks to balance your holiday intake. For example, a Thanksgiving meal may provide 500-1500 extra calories or more and many of us overeat the entire four day weekend. There are 3500 calories in a pound, so you can see how easy it is for them to add up. Most of us don’t notice before it is too late.
