My Plan


I am not a doctor, healthcare worker, or dietician. I am a normal person. I work as a web developer. This page is forever evolving because I am testing and trying different methods. I also plan to leave a trail of them here.

My info:

  • June 27, 2021, when I started (RESTART: March 27, 2022)
  • This plan log started on August 6, 2021 (updated 8/18)
  • I am female, 46, 5’6, medium frame with a starting weight of 174 lbs. (Current start back up weight is 158.8 lbs.)

My plan:

  • daily exercise at least 60 minutes, I do 20 – 30 minutes of step aerobics and 30 – 40 minutes of walking
  • low calorie diet with high volume foods that allow for bigger meals
  • drink 6 – 8 glasses of water a day (trying)
  • using a calorie deficit by having smaller portion meals and eliminating snacks that are not healthy
  • cut out flour based desserts, unless its a special celebration
  • I still eat dark chocolate after dinner or have a low calorie dessert that is not flour based
  • I am trying to use the zigzag approach where I eat higher calories on the weekend
  • I use the calorie deficit information found here
