Figured out this week that I have been eating over 2,000 calories per day. I'm 5'3"... I need 1,550 max!!! Cutting calories should be helpful, but it can be difficult as I nanny and usually act as a trash can for my kids' uneaten food, and snacking when I'm told to make myself feel at home can be way too easy!! I also really really really like sweets...
Lost 2 lbs. since i last went to ymca 2wks ago. (maintained 2 wks ago). Today instructor showed me how to read the scale and I nearly passed out when I saw scale on number go DOWN! Wednesday begins my 3rd week WITHOUT soda! I have iced&hot tea, water and cappuccino (NOT all at the same time!) Today I actually recorded what I ate and my jogging workout.. so I'm feeling pretty good.
Also I'm taking up the March meatless challenge. I had shrimp, garlic biscuits, salad, potatos and ice tea at Red Lobster. I was craving it, ate it and recorded it! Now I need more protein! Never seem to get my protein in! Found out today shrimp is not a meat a,d now I can still have my sweet tooth too! ;)

gained a little this week. to be fair, i lost almost 4 pounds last week. I'm sure my body is wondering what is going on. plus, i haven't been tracking past few days. naughty me. we'll just have to see what the next weeks bring me. can't give up.
I really fell off the wagon this weekend, but I'm hopping back on today! I did exercise, but I did not track my food at all and definitely overindulged. I'm going to weigh in tomorrow morning (though I'm thinking it might not be too pretty) and post here.
Good job to those of you who have already lost!
