performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

Hello! My name is Rachael. I'm a new full-time student for medical coding.

Currently 7 months pregnant so I will be using this site after birth.

I realized my clothing started to get too tight and discovered I was 130 lbs which isn't bad. However, I”m short (5 feet) which is a bit heavy for me. I decided to do something about it and searched for a calorie count app on my phone. Then found it was linked to this wonderful website! This made counting calories very painless!

I also needed to exercise. After some research I discovered jump roping would be a quick way to burn off calories. However it was hard on my knees! A coworker told me about Barry's Bootcamp which is a great way to start out as a beginner. I then discovered P90X and I'm currently doing that. My diet is also a big issue. I never realized how important it is to get a good amount of protein & eat fruit and veggies. Another coworker gave me a book “Burn the fat, Feed the muscle” which goes into great detail on what your body needs. Now I drink a lot of water, less soda and try to stay away from fast food!

About every other week I saw results, so I learned to not expect to loose weight right away.
