Losing weight... again!
I am going to focus this post on losing weight. No I am not obsessed! I just haven't talked to you about it. Last year I lost a little over 20 lbs. This year I would like to loose another 20 (at least 15). This would put me at a good healthy weight.
A little bit of history about myself - I have always been "skinny" very much so! Just ask my mom! All through school I was a stick, but very healthy. That is just the way I was. When I was in my early 20's I weighed between 100 - 110 lbs. And was wearing a size 5 (most of the time). I had my baby when i was 27 and did gain some weight, but lost it just as fast. Before she was even a year old I was back down to a size 5 again! It has always been very easy for me to loose weight. I am very disciplined that way. Once I set my mind to something... Also I do not eat meat and I do tend to eat pretty healthy.
Then I married Glen - it all went down hill from there. I went up to a size 12. See the problem is my husbands favorite restaurant is Dunkin Donuts, LOL! While he can afford to eat donuts every day- I can not! My husband is built like a fine classic Mustang, with not an ounce of fat on him! Me, I eat one donut and I am working it off for weeks.
Just recently (last year) I stepped on the scale and said "This is enough!" I have got to loose some weight. So I stopped snacking and started exercising more (just on my own) and started eating healthier. and I lost 20 lbs! Yay! Go me!
Then just before Thanksgiving I kinda Plateaued and was staying the same weight for what seemed like forever. Now that the Holidays are over I would like to get back to working at it again.
I have found this program (an app.) for the nook that I downloaded. Its GREAT! You can sign up through the internet. Which is what my daughter has done. It is called - Lose it! - here is the link -
It really makes you accountable for everything you eat and every exercise you do! And it keeps track for you. It lets you know how much more you can eat that day. In the beginning it asks how old you are, what your current weight is, what you would like to be at, your height etc. and tells you what your caloric intake should be. You get credit for every little exercise you do, even house cleaning, and shoveling snow. And it is FREE!!!!!!!!! I am on my 3rd week now and I have lost 4 lbs! And I am down to a size 10. The key is signing in everyday (it only takes a few minutes everyday) and being honest. If you cheat - you are only cheating yourself!
I don't know if it is available for the Kindle - if you find out let me know!
Please check it out. If you are interested in joining let me know we can be "friends" and help each other. If you have any questions about it let me know. But so far I am telling you I love it! My daughter signed up through the internet and she texted me and said "I love this program!!!" She has lost a couple of lbs too!
