I’m trying something new, or rather, adjusting what I have been doing. I know what you’re probably thinking. “You’re trying something else? You always start things and never finish them.” You’d be right, but I can only tell you that this time is different.
I’ve been consistently counting my calories using the Lose It! app for about five months now, and I’ve lost about 10 pounds so far.
My last two sets of progress pictures. Not too many differences, except on the scale.
Over the last couple of months though, I’ve been losing and gaining the same two or three pounds. I needed to change something up. I’ve read such great things about the flexibility that comes with counting macros over straight calories, so I decided to try it out. Poppy Locks calculated my macros for me, and I officially started using IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) last Friday.
So far, I am absolutely loving it. It takes so much more planning than I am used to, but it’s almost fun to see how I can play with my macros to get the best meals possible. After only a few days, I already feel better. I’ll update in a couple of weeks to let you know if it’s actually helping me lose weight or inches!
