following: Shed It or Dread It Lifestyle Improvement Plan
performance: losing 2.5 lb a week
I started counting calories with Fat Secret in January 2010 and did really good until the Saints started winning. I fell off track and didn't have a good support system in place for those times when I didn't stick to the plan. As a result, I regained all I had lost and some. Then, I started again in September 2010 and lost 35 pounds...WOW. I even went on a Disney cruise and lost weight. Boy did I have motivation...then, the person I had dedicated my weight loss to, my dad, got sick and passed away in the summer of 2011. I spiraled downward and I think a part of me intentionally put back all the weight. I consciously knew what I was doing, and in fact, I kept telling people that I was eating my way back into my fat clothes.
Now I am back and I am smarter and stronger. I know how to do this and I am not going to stop. It is the right thing to do and counting calories is the way. It's not for vanity, it's for health. I set my initial goal of 175 to the weight I was when I stopped counting calories. My goal date is the 1st anniversary of my dads death, July 31, 2012, 4 days before my 42nd birthday.
If you want to follow me on my journey and read my story, send me a buddy request. I actively journal and have done so since 2010. I also created a group on Facebook to make it easier to share links and support each other. It is called Shed It or Dread It Lifestyle Improvement Group.
