Thanks for the kind words! It really cheered me up during this rough week (work stress - ugh!).
To answer your questions...My current macros are:
~Current weight - 154 (ok gained back 1#
~Goal weight - 140 (really 145 but...)
~Goal weight in KG = 70
Protein = 70 kg
Carbs = 35 g
Fat = 140 g
But then using MFP - I adjusted it to:
Calories a day = 1400
Carbs = 35g max
Protein = 53 max
Fat = 117 max
This would equal 0.9 lbs loss per week. Which is OK with me.
I gained back 1# this morning. Typical for me to have scale swing up down. The irony is that i lost weight eating well (big splurge on paleo pancakes, whipped cream & fresh berries with bacon and later wine at dinner) and then gained when eating "lighter" and no wine...although numbers wise not much difference.
No am not measuring myself. No bandwidth for that kind of micromanagement. I use my newly purchased jeans as a guideline. I was wearing size 14-16. Bought a slew of new size 10s and one (yippee) size 8. I use the size 8s to monitor how i'm doing.
But really i was so please that i halted the scale creep up that was occuring over the past weeks - reversed it down to where I ended the HCG diet. So that puts me back to square one as it were. I want to be able to hold 153ish and then creep it down to goal weight. While learning to eat. And not eat -more importantly. Not over eat. Not eat when not hungry. Not emotionally eat.
Thanks again for the sweet words.
