I’ve posted before on losing weight, watching what I eat and usually I just fall flat on my face. I’m working on things again and I really am working towards my weight loss goal – but not just weight loss but health. Even though I was never obese in my younger days – I may have carried around a few extra pounds but I wasn’t obese, like I am today. I don’t hate myself but I do hate looking at pictures of myself – which is a shame because I’ve missed out on plenty of photo ops with my children and husband.
I’m continuing to use my ShapelyGirl DVD’s as well as my Wii Fit – which is a fun way to lose weight but my legs will tell you it’s not all just games! I also don’t want to see my children go down my path. I’m using MyFitnessPal to track my calories of which I’m allowing myself to have 1,550 a day – if in a couple weeks I’m not losing I may restrict even more, we’ll see. If you want to follow me on MyFitnessPal feel free to send me a request. I also started using Nexercise which seems like fun.
So without further ado – I took a picture of myself (well my 8 year old did) to show you what I look like today:
