Hey everyone! I have struggled with my body since high school (maybe before then) but I've never really known what to do to lose weight. I joined the Air Force at 17 and left home shortly after graduating high school. I GAINED weight in basic training... spent 4 yrs in the Air Force & another 3 supporting the military/government.

I have two children, during both pregnancies I gained very little weight. (4 lbs with my first, 0 lbs with my last.) But after both, while breastfeeding, I would sit and eat all day long. So I gained again while most women lose. Right now I am a stay at home mom and focused more on cooking and setting a good example for my kids.

My heaviest weight was 203lbs. I look back at Christmas pictures from that year and hate the way I look. My lowest weight ever was 135. I want to be back there. Right after having my daughter I weighed 147. I would be so happy at that weight, and this time I KNOW I can stick with this life change.

I am counting calories, just got a gym membership, and I'm working out with some Jillian Michaels DVD's. I am also reading Jillian Michaels books and have gained a positive self image from them.

Goal #1 - Break out of the 190's - DONE!
Goal #2 - Break out of the 180's - almost there...again
Goal #3 - Lose weight to 175 to move from "Obese" to "Overweight" - 4lbs to go!
Goal #4 - Break out of the 170's
Goal #5 - Break out of the 160's
Goal #6 - Break out of the 150's - less than the hubby
Goal #7 - Lose weight to 145 to move from "Overweight" to "Healthy"
Goal #8 - Break out of the 140's
Goal #9 - Lose weight to 135 - GOAL WEIGHT

Once I reach my final goal I will be showing off my new body in a bikini at the beach! :)

Diet Sodas
I am exactly like you. Some days I make it through without any soda at all, but I find if I allow myself one every once in a while it stops me from going crazy and having 6 or 12...

I read something about Aspartame and how it's not good for you, but you know sometimes they have veggie recalls and veggies are supposed to be good for you. I think in moderation it's not a bad thing, but moderation is key. Smile

Good Luck!! And congrats on the 2 lb loss!

Weigh In Now!
Today I'm finally back to where I was before the car accident, and I'm so happy! Then the FatSecret thing said I'm losing weight at a rate of 11lbs a week. LOL no way, I'm so not losing that much. LOL

And I too love your sig, Canajun!! Smile

Weigh In Now!
"You lost 0.5 lb (0.3 %) since you last weighed in on Thursday 30 Dec 10. At that rate it will take you about 31 months to get to your goal weight."

Excuse me, FatSecret, but you really don't have a crystal ball into my life or the events of the past month. Between losing my car, being on an emotional roller coaster, and not being able to go to the gym because I hurt my knee in the accident (not to mention my monthly visitor) I think I have an excuse for only losing .5 lbs in the past month. At least I didn't gain back everything I lost in the month prior to that, FatSecret!

Thanks for trying to make me feel like crap, FatSecret, but this girl has a CAN DO attitude now! And you will not bring me down!

Anyone else have something/someone trying to bring you down right now that you refuse to let get in the way of your goals??

Body Bugg or Fit Bit? That is the question...
I bought a fitbit. I LOVE it. I really like that it tracks my sleep. It also helps keep me motivated. I can look at my fatsecret calorie total and if I'm not there yet with calories burned I can march around my living room a little and get my calories up there. The thing I love most about it is that no one knows I'm wearing it. Smile

Good luck with your decision!

Oh, I also ordered mine online, but then found it at Best Buy for the same price, but no shipping. Wish I would have known!! lol
