Establishing a Baseline to Test a New Product – Week 3

Daily pictures are fun however  I am going to switch to weekly pictures. Mostly I feel that one should not weight themselves daily it can be hard on your self-esteem with the numbers bouncing up and down. Also I am finding myself forgetting to take the pictures hence why we are missing a day this week.

This week was challenging with PMS setting my food cravings are at an all time high and maintaining my calorie budget just did not happen.  You ask how do I come up with my weekly calorie budget? I rely on technology I love the app LoseIt I log all my exercise completed and food eaten. I also have the app set up right now to lose 1/2 lb per as I am trying to drop a little body fat. I should have a deficit of 3500 calories per week mine, last week I was approximately 5200 calories over budget.

The beginning of the week showed bloating from eating some foods that are on my intolerance list. It’s amazing how I can gain 3 to 4 lbs just by eating sugar and dairy. The end of the week also shows bloating starting to set in because I am PMSing.  This is something that is very important for women who are trying to lose weight. You need  to realize that once a month you will weight will fluctuate, for me it often goes up 4lb. to 5lb. Shape magazine has a great article on this subject,
