It's no lie or secret I am very overweight... last week I decided enough is enough and started doing something about it. I just found out about the food and fitness tracker today and used it... and OMG it said I'm nowhere near my goal. I seriously don't think I can do any more what do you folks think I'm doing wrong? Please help!!
I go to gym every day:
Walk on treadmill for 30 mins (burned 90 calories according to the readout) Ride Exercise Bike for 10 mins (I started at 2 mins every day I'm adding an extra minute on the bike, today with 10 minutes I burned 90 calories according to the bike readout)
I had a Tuna Sandwhich on Pita for lunch (strictly measured out 1 serving which is half a can) - 80 calories 1 serving of baby carrots (strictly measured out and weighed) - 35 calirues
For dinner 1 serving of hamburger helper (strictly measured out) - 120 calories 1 serving of sweet baby corn (strictly measured out) - 110 calories
1 Honeycrisp apple for an evening snack - 80 calories
mixed in with all this I drink water like crazy and more than exceed the 8 glasses a day requirement.
This is a normal meal schedule and exercise schedule for me for the past week and a half. (Lunch has been exactly the same every day)
Why is the planner saying I'm so far away from my goal?? I feel very full (which to be honest is a surprise to me) and am exercising daily...
