December 15, 2012 Final Weigh in 219 Graduation from college

I am starting all over again because life got crazy over the last year and I gained most of the weight back. None of my new clothes I bought fit me and I feel like I worked so hard to blow it. This time I am going to take it slow and stay on the diet until I meet my major goal instead of taking a break from dieting, because when I do, I fall into the bad habits again. As you can see by the dates so far it is not going well. So Here again I try.

We have had netflixs and hulu plus for a while now and got rid of our cable/sat drainage. FOr what we paid in sat/cable bills we are getting more choices on demand and saving about 50 dollars a month for the same things we saw on cable/sat. I access it through my phone, computer, and gaming system. We hooked up a spare laptop to our bedroom TV and use it as the screen instead of the laptop screen. No matter what time of the day it is I can workout, watch a movie or check out the latest news stories from anywhere. Hope this helps with what you wanted to know. If any questions just ask.

Looking for buddies for the long haul
I hope to lose my weight by my next birthday in Dec. but I have close to 100 lbs. to lose to be where I was when I first got married. I hope we can together lose the lbs. and make our husbands remember the vivacious women we are that they married. Add me as a buddy if you like. We all need support in the challenges we have a head of us. Brat

I went into the calorie counter and figured up all foods I will be eating. Looked at the measurements and made myself a chart to go by so that when it comes time to fill my plate I know what size, how many and no-nos I can have. Amazingly it still falls close to my RDI. The problem is the other meals and snacking besides the big meal. Good luck to everyone and I agree we all need to watch what we eat but for 1 day enjoy family and friends and eat without the stress of being on a diet of any kind.

Xbox 360 Kinect Fitness...
One thing I have discovered with the Biggest loser game is you have to go online and have a gold membership or doesnt keep track of your progress. A year membership is 50 dollars but well worth it cause you can watch hulu and netflix as well on the xbox live streaming.
