Ive had this particular scale for over a year, but I’ve had a couple others in the past. This is the biggest and prettiest scale I’ve bought. You can buy this on amazon. Just search for food scales. You can weigh in grams, ounces, milliliters, and by the pound.
I only started using this scale mid last week because I was waiting for a battery in the mail.
Since then, I’ve been weighing everything and recording all my measurements and calories in MyFitnessPal. I highly recommend you do this to make sure you’re eating the right portions. You may be surprised by how little or how much you’re actually eating. All you have to do is scan the barcode for whatever ingredient it is and input how much you are about to eat in MyFitnessPal.
Sometimes, I do not weigh some veggies if I’m eating a very small portion. If it’s bigger, I do. Those calories and carbs in some of the veggies do add up.
It does take time but I think it’s worth it. I also like to get in every single calorie possible, because I have a big appetite!
You’ll notice this week that I am doing a lower carb and lower calorie intake because I feel that the 1477 calories was too much. I’m dropping them down to 1300. I will also be following my macros and try to stay under and close to my goal protein, fat, and carbs for the day.
I have only lost 1 pound. My boyfriend said I do look more toned all over except my pooch area. So, that tells me that I am putting in work at the gym. Something, isn’t working with my diet.
I will also be focusing more on core workouts. I will be doing low weight and high reps in between the core set to keep my heart rate up in fat burning mode. My workouts will be about an hour long.

That sums up the blog posts for today! (You’ll notice for the rest of this challenge that I’m posting the food I ate the prior day to manage time better!)
