All in all I think I've done well. I'm considering any value within 50 calories of my 1600 calorie goal to be a success. That makes 6 out of 11 days successful. Not passing grades in school, but for my first 11 days of calorie counting I find it to be acceptable.
The first day I tracked, I also input the food into Weight Watchers. There my daily points allowance was 35 points. The food I consumed that Monday was 37 points. Comparing calories to points is like comparing apples to oranges, but I was glad to see that my 1600 calories loosely correlated to the number of points I was allowed in the WW program.
Not tracking is what I have the biggest problem with. I need to track every day. I had a rough day on Thursday and just gave up towards the end of the day. It's not good that I gave up but I am proud that I kept up my tracking. Friday I intended to track, but left my book in my car and then ate out lunch and had completely given up by dinner time. As I would tell my 3 year old, that is unacceptable.
Over the past 11 days I've felt pretty good. There haven't been any crash days like I experienced 2 weeks ago and my cravings have been manageable. I've used Spark People to support calorie lookups as well as general web sources. I even started asking Siri for calorie information. I dare say it's been fun getting this setup and figured out.
I'm going to hold steady and see what my June weigh-in says about my progress. Again this month... I'm hopeful!
