Saa-looow Going

Lately I've been noticing that my weight has been slowly creeping up to where I do not want it to be. Since I want to nip it in the bud before things get out of hand, I've been counting my calories to a T using Lose It! which I blogged about here. I've also gotten back to the gym which makes a world of a difference since I can use the calories I've burned to have more leeway with food. I've been doing thirty minutes of cardio which usually gives me back 245 calories. This may not seem like much, but when you're only allotted 1300 calories/day, 245 calories allows a lot more freedom. For instance, I can have that extra glass of wine & not feel bad about it!

I'm trying to stay patient with the weight loss, but patience is not one of my stronger points. I know I cannot expect this weight to come off right away, but I'd like to be seeing more results than I've seen thus far. I've been super strict with my calorie intake for the past 3 weeks and I've not seen an ounce of weight loss! What's up with that?! Either way though, I will NOT give up or start slacking since using Lose It! has just made me so much more aware of what I'm eating. The weekends get a little trickier since we're usually out & about & I tend to snack more; especially on Sundays when we're watching football!

So, I'm hoping that I start to see a smaller number on the scale soon or I will be one annoyed gal!
