performance: gaining 0.4 lb a week
4 years ago I quit smoking then two months later I got pregnant. I gained 15 pounds in the 2 months after stopping smoking. The pregnancy added on another 30 pounds. After the birth, I went down to 150. And here I sit 3 years later at 152 pounds. I have decided to loose weight the right way with proper diet and exercise. My goal is 130 to start with and I would love to get back to 115 which is what I was 5 years ago. But at that time I was pretty much just smoking my life away and barely eating, so yeah, that wasn't healthy. I am determined and I am doing this for MYSELF. I have already lost down to 147 and this is my 2nd week on this diet. I am accounting for all my foods/snacks (stay away from sugar free candy-very high in carbs lol)/drinks. This has helped me see where the weight is coming from. I have increased my water intake and drinking the minimum of 8 glasses a day and I feel great. I have improved my flexibility and I don't feel like I want to rest all the time!
I have lost 22 pounds and met my original goal. I joined this site about 11 weeks ago. I learned so much from different things I have read on here. I joined some challenges. I first joined a challenge that had me exercise on my wii 3 days a week. Then I joined one to drink 64 oz of water a day. Then I joined Hungry No More. That challenged changed everything for me. I learned how to eat properly and not get hungry. I have learned that to be successful, I have to take the time and plan for that success. I am planning on making my diet public as soon as I am able to enter everything. At present there is a glitch that isn't saving the info I put in. Thanks to everyone who has helped me in my success!
After my initial goal of 130, I reset the goal to 115. I almost made it. On March 20, 2010 I hit 116.2! It took 6 months. BUT on March 19, 2010 I found out I am pregnant! So far so good. I am 9 weeks and have gained 3 pounds.
