I'm joining the bandwagon. I am currently pre-dieting.
Yes. Pre-dieting. It's easier to wean myself into diet mode than to just jump in. Basically, I am eating around 2000 calories a day. I figure out what I need to drop down to calorie-wise to lose weight at the rate I want, then I start weaning myself daily to 100 calories less than that goal (so I have a little cushion for extras). Then when I'm consitently at that calorie level for a week, I am officially "dieting".
It's worked for me before. I started yesterday. Anyway, yesterday I got down to just under 1800 calories, today I am hovering around 1550 calories. I will start struggling at around 1300 calories.
Is anyone else on MyFitnessPal? We need to friend up!
