I know there is so much conflicting information and the fact that what works for one person may not work for another that I get so confused. And one person will tell me that I am a active person and I had a friend tell me the other day that I wasnt that active. Well excuse she runs around alot more then me, but she just goes place to place and sits and talks to people or plays Bingo, auctions, and other stuff but it is sitting. I dont go to that kind of stuff much. But I am constantly working on the house, painting, yardwork, gardening, walking dogs, riding bigs, chasing after kids (even though mine and his are grown, seems as if I always have a grandkid, neice or newphew, or a function of some sort for them or my older teenage kids. ) And we have a huge house
.But anyway We probable should be getting our protein from food, But I have days where I am so busy I dont get time to eat much threw the day so I still supplement with a shake on those days, Like yesterday. Or sometimes I just eat a can of tuna, which I did last night. oh and yes I use fitday and I have a notebook I put it in first all day long so I dont forget nothing. I miss a day now and then, but journal most...at least in the notebook even if I dont get time to put it in fitday..
Yes I still do fitday and yesterday was not good in calories or protein. I didnt even get in 500 calories. But that is what I get so confused on. Some people tell me no more then 800. some say between 1200 and 1500 and I had someone tell me the other day that I should be getting in around 2000. I cant even imagine that and wont go there.. too scared. I have been a slow loser though and I am sure it is because I havent figured out what works for me. Sometimes I think I should do what I did before surgery one time and eat the food pyramid, although now I would have to eat all day to get it all day. I lost like 80 pds in three months on that diet. My metabolism was kicking fast. But I dont want to have to eat all day and obvioulsly that didnt work either cause I put it all back on. So I figure as long as I am losing ( even slow) and am keeping it a lifestyle change. Iit will work long term this time. Sorry got so long. Here is where some of the older long term people hang out. I thought you might find this post interesting.
