Diet: week 3

The Monday after Wes' birthday I was seriously committed to cutting my calories. I have GOT to loose weight! Sadly, I've done this all before; but never-the-less I have 50 or so lbs to shed. It's been 2 full weeks and I am doing well. I lost 3.4lbs the first week, and 3.2 this past week. I am very happy with that, although I know it won't come off this fast for long! I am restricting myself to 1,200 calories a day, aiming for as many veggies as I can and tracking everything that goes into my mouth. I can eat whatever I want, as long as I stay under that mark for the day. I am using an online calorie counter, and checking in with a few ladies on the Diaper Pin... using the computer to hold myself accountable has been good for me. It's cold and snowy, and I would love to hunker down with some comfort food, but I know what I have to do! So, my goal is to be down to 150 pounds or so mid summer. Ill check in here and there, as it's going to be a long road!


  1. Great job! It sounds like you have a great plan in place. Stay consistent and you can do it!! I just lost 40 and it is so worth it. You have accountabilty but also will become you support system for those weeks that you don't loose or even gain. Don't let it get you down. Just as important as the pysical battle you have to fight that mental battle that helped us get into this situation to begin with. YOU CAN DO IT!!

  2. You can do this. Let me know if you need any help or just and ear to listen.

  3. Good for you! Also - I love your new blog design - it is really fun :)
