So I guess you could say I am jumping on the bandwagon. Actually I have been on the bandwagon since the first of this week after many failed attempts to loose weight so I decided to jump on Amber's challenge.
After thinking about the comment for a week I finally joined SparkPeople (after many googled searches for a diet help that was free) and downloaded the app determined that this would be the real deal. Now believe me I have most certainly not given up all my foods I am just counting calories and believe me when you start paying attention to what you consume you don't want to waste your goal calories on something that might fill you up for 30 minutes. So far I have eliminated soft drinks except for one a day (and sometimes just one sip from PJ's pop when he opens it), the major sweets I ate got eliminated (I still allow myself a treat a day though). I also try to walk for at least 30 minutes a day. Overall it isn't a lot but amazingly just cutting out the majority of pop has brought me back down to 141.
We shall see how this goes I guess. My goal is to be back to 125lbs by Oct 20th. I figure what a fitting goal as to be back to pre-pregnancy weight on Xay's first birthday. I will make sure to weigh in weekly (even though I do it nightly) and keep you updated on my journey through losing weight. In the meantime go over to Amber's 30 Days For Me challenge and check out the other girls who are taking part too
