How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Calories Consumed vs. Calories Burned

Yesterday I started using my new BodyBugg. I got it set up and put on my arm at around 9am or so. I didn't really do anything different than I typically do, I wanted to see how my day panned out.

According to my plan, these are my goals:

Calories Burned: 2250
Calories Consumed: 1250
Target Deficit: 1000

For Tuesday, 3/15 here's how it all came down:

Calories Burned: 1991
Calories Consumed: 1294
Deficit: 697

So, not exactly how much I needed to do but gives me a good place to start. So, I need to move a little more than I usually do, which shouldn't be too hard. I just need to make an effort every day to do a little more moving around :) As for my eating, I was a little higher yesterday than I usually am - but not THAT much. I'm OK with how those numbers fell for the day.

Tonight I'm going to see Tommy Tune with my friend Beth and I'm super excited!!! Then Friday I'm going to see Duran Duran with my BFF Debora!!!!! It will be my 5th time to see them, and my 2nd time to see them with Debora :)

Make it a great day everyone!!


  1. Sounds like a great tool :) Keep it up!

  2. Glad you aren't Hungry Like a Wolf! Ha! That's pretty much the only Duran Duran song I know.

    (That is Duran Duran, right?)

  3. Yep Beth, it sure is! Also ... Rio, Save a Prayer, Union of the Snake, The Reflex, and a bunch of others :)
