performance: gaining 4.9 lb a week

Hi, I am Rose. I live in the Tampabay area. I am a wife, mother, and a small business owner. I work my hours around my son's school day and work most weekends. I live close to Busch Gardens and go there usually once a week with my son. (More when I have family from out of town) Well, not anymore. Someone hit my car and it was totaled out. Unfortunately I was driving my car at the time. My back is messed up and I go to physical therapy 2 to 3 times per week. It stinks not being able to go to Busch Gardens and ride the rides. Now I can go and walk around like we used too (a ton of walking there) but I want the rides too! The accident also helped add 25+ lbs to my already bigger body. I need to get it off and keep it off! BMI to restart with is 48, very high.
Mini Goals
Weigh 240 lbs - Unknown, just something -Decided on a facial
Weigh 225 lbs - Unknown, just something - Decided on a massage
Weigh 218 lbs - Class II obese
Weigh 199 lbs - Unknown, just something - Decided a massage and facial!
Weigh 191 - Class 1 Obesity instead of starting class 3 (from 48 to 34.9)
Weigh 175 lbs - Unknown, just something - Decided New Thinx
Weigh 163.6 lbs - No longer obese just overweight - Unknown, just something
Weigh 150 lbs - Hubby treats to new clothes
Weigh 136lbs - Normal weight according to BMI - New Thinx
Weigh 130 lbs - Full Body Wax - Husband pays
Goal Weight - Full Body Massage with spa day - Treat for me by me - New Thinx also.

I completed my first 5k in December 2014. It was my 41st birthday BUT it was before the time I was born so I could say I completed it when I was 40. Yay color run! It's more fun with colors being flung at you.

Reports Page is Blank!!
Try logging into the Canadian site and entering it there. Sometimes if you do that it comes back here also. I couldn't enter somethings here until I logged in there, entered it, and then logged in here. Weird but it sometimes helps.

I love my vivofit 2! It has encouraged me to walk more. It made me aware of how little I was actually doing and made me want to increase it. I average over 11k a day now. When I first started it was about 4k to 5k except for working days.

Ice Cream Recommendations
So Delicious Sugar Free Coconut Milk Frozen Dessert. If you are doing net carbs it has about 8 per serving. Not great but works as a sometimes treat. I really like the mint chip. Breyers CarbSmart has 4 net carbs per serving and my local stores sell it at the same price as the rest of the breyers ice creams.
