performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

I turned 40 in October and weighed in heavier then I've ever been in my life - not exactly how I wanted to go 'over the hill'. I'm a stepmom to two very picky teenagers which basically means I'm eating the same junk food that they are, just because it's easier. That definitely has to change. Their dad and I have been together for 11 years now, and he often complains about his weight as well, so hopefully I will have a good support system. I am actively involved in animal rescue (I usually prefer my dogs company to most people I know...haha!) and that keeps me pretty busy. Good luck to all my fellow dieters - together I know we can do this!

UPDATE 4/16/2012

Back again....I was doing so well and then life got in the way. I was taking Zumba classes at least twice a week and loving it. I was walking the same. It was so easy and becoming a great habit. Then my work schedule changed and I couldn't attend classes anymore. I spent most of last winter sick and could barely make it through the day. But I'm back and healthy (or at least trying to be). I need to do this for me and I need to keep myself motivated and not expect others to do it for me!

Hi everyone. Has been a crazy week getting ready to my step-daughter's graduation party on Saturday. Haven't had much time to post, exercise, OR eat right! UGH! But I'm doing enough cleaning and yard work that I think I'm burning right through the junk I'm eating. Hope everyone is having a good week....I'm exhausted! Smile

Happy Hump Day!

Be sure to check out the pictures that are being posted under the group, "Diet Buddies Needed". Definitely some good motivation for when you need that little extra!

Hope everyone is having a good day.

And it's best to weigh yourself in the morning before you have breakfast. No sense weighing yourself in the evening after eating all day, no matter how well you did.

It doesn't do quite everything the website does, but I love that it is mobile and I really love being able to use the bar code scanner to enter packaged food... definitely a huge part of my success. In fact, I had the app before I know about the website!

Same here!
