performance: gaining 2.5 lb a week

I am a 39 year old mother of two wonderful kiddos, ages 16 & 8. I have always struggled with my weight since I was in grade school. Over the years I have lost weight and would keep it off for awhile, but once I started having my children, it began to get even harder to keep the weight off. I would lose weight only to gain back even more, and after my second child, my weight slowly crept up to a whopping 270.

Then one day, I was just tired! Tired of being so heavy, Tired of sweating all the time, Tired of being a bad example for my children, Tired of my mother, who was in better shape than me, worrying about MY health all the time, Tired of my son telling me how soft and squishy I was and especially Tired of no longer being able to fit into the rides at Six Flags and having to tell my son, that "Mommy might not be able to ride this one with you."

So I knew that I needed CHANGE in my life! I just DECIDED that I WAS going to do this. Not, maybe, but YES, I will change my life and be the example that I want to be for my family and especially for my children.

I WANTED TO BE A SUCCESS STORY!! And now 125 pounds lost in just over a year, the BEST feeling in the world (besides fitting into a size 6/8 down from a tight 24) is my 16 year old daughter telling me how proud she is of ME! Now that is success!! :)

GIVE UP the Diet Soda!!
My advice for anyone who struggles with weight gain and cravings is to GIVE UP the Diet Soda! I did 6 months ago, and I feel SO much better!

I was seriously addicted and my mantra was "I gotta have my Diet Coke" just to get through the day.

Since giving it up, I no longer have the all consuming cravings for junk food and combined with recording all my calories in my Calorie Counter App and joining a gym, I have dropped almost 80 pounds in less than 6 months! Exclamation

I use my app on my Android phone religiously.
I keep my calories under 1500 and record all my food in my app on my phone. I combine this with going to the gym 3x a week and I have lost almost 80 lbs in 6 months!
You may need to up your exercise, I usually try to get between 2,600 - 3,000 burned each day, and I only use the app to keep track of my exercise, so I think it works great! It may not be exact, but it works for me! Keep it up, you will get there!! Smile

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I weigh the same time every morning and log it in my phone.

I know they tell you not to, but the daily motivation works for me! I am down 75 lbs. since January 1st of this year! What works for me is the daily reminder that what I am doing is really making a difference, I can see the changes everyday! Smile
