slow & steady

I was reading a blog written by a fellow Clydesdale. He swore by a computer program called I decided to try it & I'm amazed by the results I'm getting. The program keeps track of my metabolic rate, calories in, calories earned by exercise- which any calories I burn I can eat, fluid intake and fluid amount needed, amount & percentage of calories fat carb & protein, & all the macro nutrients. I've been consistently losing 2 pounds a week since I got on Dietpower.

One of the ways I'm trying to combat my binge eating while dieting this time is having 1 or 2 cheat days so I can still get the physical cravings & emotional comfort from my food that I usually need. I'll let you know if my new plan & program works. I'm very excited. I feel like this is the first time in a very long time that there is hope for me to be at a normal weight. & all of you triathletes and duathletes out there know how important it is in endurance athletics to keep our weight down.

Tomorrow I start my taper for the Polar Bear triathlon. I'm definitely overweight for this race, but I've been consistent & dedicated in my training. We'll see if all that training can help negate some of my weight gain.


  1. I am glad you are fired up and I look forward to reading your progress. I just joined in with some others who are stating a goal for year-end. I feel strange that I don't have an actual plan right now, but have committed to lose 10 pounds by year-end. My exercise is cycling.

    Good luck on the Polar Bear Tri. Keep us posted!
