First day under my calorie limit and today looking good too!!!!

YESTERDAY I WAS UNDER!!!! I was so proud of myself. And I felt like I had a lot to eat!! Today it is almost 2 pm and I am under but 1300 calories!!! Dinner is going to be able to be filling tonight!!

D has been waking me up at 6am every morning so I can get my workout in before my kids get up. It has been working great! I love the energy I have throughout the day when I get a workout in the morning. Any day now I should be getting my Just Dance 2 game for my Wii!!! I can't wait!! I have heard this is a really good workout. I LOVE dance. Used to take dance classes. 9 years. I loved it. When I get into better shape I would like to find some adult classes to get into.

AND NOW......The BEFORE picture.....From now...
This was me at my heaviest.....(That is the gov. of Indiana)


I will post progress pics as my journey continues.....

Feb 2nd, 2010

I started yesterday and I was SHOCKED!!! I never realized how many calories were in the food that I ate. When I would eat a salad I am sure with all the cheese and dressing that I put on it I was consuming close to 1,000 calories!!! That blew my mind. I am finding that the foods that I need to eat to stay within my calorie intake (Less than 1400) are actually very good. This is a mind over matter sort of thing! I can do this. I NEED to do this!!

I am tracking ALL of my exercise, the workouts I do in the morning and through out the day. I burned 135 calories for cleaning!!! And that was just sweeping and mopping! Something I do multiple times a week.

I am counting my calories at My user name is "megpalmer" if you want to add me. This is very helpful. Whatever food I eat is listed in the data base with ALL the nutritional information. Keeps track of everything too! Tells me how many calories I have consumed during the day, how many I have left, what calories I have burned exercising, my water intake, it tracks it all. There is also a support forum that you can post in. AND the best part...THERE IS AN APP!!! A free APP for you phone!!! So you can keep track when you are on the go too!! The website is also free. WONDERFUL!!!

Thank you again for everything!!!
