Tomorrow is the last day of my first week trying to burn 3400 calories. I am 600 calories away right now and will get it tomorrow. I feel really good about it. April 1 it will be 4 months since I started this journey over again. I am going to take new pictures of me tomorrow also.

Okay going to get back on track. I can't say that I fell off but probably not working at it as hard as I could be. I am feeling better today than I was this weekend and I am going to weight everything from now on to that I know exactly what I am eating. 190 here I come.


Everything is coming back. I don't know what it is but it is coming back and it is easier to stick to it this time. Is it the competition? Is it that I want to be cute again? I can't answer that but it is easier to go to the gym and enjoy going to the gym.
Tomorrow I am going to take pictures to show where I was at the end of the month.


Okay back to basics, back to reading what I learned the first time and relearn them. I can do it again because I have done it before. So far week one I am on a roll, and I am still moving. That is where I am starting.

1. Take it slowly; take it 10 pounds or 25 pounds at a time instead of the whole amount.
2. This takes time, so be patient. You didn't gain this weight over night so you are not going to lose it overnight
3. This is a life style change, not a diet, as soon as you figure that one out it will be easy.
4. Track everything that you put in your mouth.
5. Your calorie range is a range, not a suggestion. Stay above your minimum, very very very important, the day that you don't make your minimum you are going to put your body in starvation mode.
6. Fluctuate your calories throughout the week, one day eat at your low end, one day eat at your high. Keep your body guessing what you are going to do next.
7. Stay active in the boards, make friends that will keep track of you.
8. Tell us if you are having problems so we can help you get motivated.
9. Drink at least 8 glasses of water if not more.
10. Make sure you reward yourself. Set up rewards for your goals. If you set up 10 pounds at a time, and you get there, reward yourself, not with food, but with something, manicure, pedicure something of that
