Making a lifestyle change that will result in permanent weight loss. I'm married and I have two children (..and I would like one more). I have gained weight slowly over the last 10 years and have gone on many diets but have not been successful at losing any weight. So I am trying to make changes I can live with and exercise as much as I can. I hate to exercise. In 6 months I've lost about 12 pounds which is kind of slow but I have to take what my body will give up. Motivation is hard so this site gives me something to do and keep track of so I can keep going. I am tired of thinking about my weight and how much I would like to lose it. I'm tired of wanting to look better in my clothes. I'm tired of all the lumps and bumps when i look in the mirror. So I'm here to make a change.

GOALS FOR JUNE (May was a bust)
1. Take my vitamins everyday
2. Work out 5-6 days a week
3. Increase calories to 2000
4. Eat most of carbs early in day, no simple carbs after 6pm
5. No eating after 9pm
6. Six glasses of water a day

1. Drink 6 glasses of water everyday
2. Lose 4 pounds.
3. Run 6.5 miles every Saturday (5/1 (4 miles), 5/9, 5/16, 5/23, 5/30)
4. Be able to do 8 pounds weights for all of stregth DVD

1. Lose 4 pounds (-1.30) Grrrrr
2. Run 6 miles every Saturday
4/3 (done), 4/11 (done), 4/18 (done), 4/25(done)
3. Increase my hand weights used in DVD (done)

4/13 Eat my calories everyday. Don't snack right before eating the meal. Just wait the 5 min and eat the meal!
4/14--Eat 400 cal for breakfast. Then eat every 2 hours. Helps to keep hunger away.
4/15 --I'M DOWN 21.8 POUNDS!!!
4/20--I'm stuggling to do the right thing
4/29--My weight fluctuates to much. I would rather not lose the weight then gain it back the next week. For the month I am down a net of 2 pounds. So what!!
5/1--I almost jumped off the wagon last week with my poor results in April but I do LOOK thinner so that encouraging. I also started spinning class and the newness is keeping me going.
5/22 life has got me down. Still waiting for something to happen and thats frustrating. Still not losing weight. Its been about a week since I have counted calories. But i'm fighting my way back
5/27 I'll start back couting calories today. So it's been about 2-3 weeks since I've been 'resting'. I'll aim for a1500-1700 calories. I don't know what to do to get the scale moving again. I think at 1200-1300 I was too low so I gave myself a break hoping it would kick start things again.
5/30 Time to make new goals. May was a hard month mentally since it's been 11 months since I have been off work. Hope to get back in July but maybe it won't be untill August. Also my net weight loss since March has been zero. So I'm doing some different things this past week and I am down one pound so we'll see if it continues. 1500 calories is alot of food since everytime I've been on a 'diet' I have eaten at 1200 calories or less! I really am terrified I'll gain weight.
6/14 Its been a rough couple of weeks. I'm trying to figure how I ended up in this situation I've been in for the past year.....Weight wise: I think I was eating way to little calories. With exercise my maintence is probably around 2400 cal. So a 500 calorie deficit which is probably too much for me would put me at 1900 calories a day!! I have been at this weight since the end of Feb so I can't keep doing what I have been because it is NOT working. I have read alot over this last week and I have been doing things all wrong. So I am going to start over with BBFM as my guide. This is the last thing I am doing. If is does not work I will continue to work out to be fit but after baby #3 I am going under the knife!!
6/22 So after 3 weeks I have not lost any weight but I have not gained any either. Do I continue where I am or do I increase my calories some more. I think I will aim for 1600 with 2 cheat meals
6/22 I am going to try to hit maintenace at 2000 calories. Do that for 1 week. Then decrease to 1700 per day with 2 cheat meals. 3 days of stregth. 3 days cardio for at least 30 min
6/26 I lost 0.9 pounds as of this morning. Is it real? Maybe not!!. Time will tell. 2000 calories is alot of food.
6/26 I'm so sick of food i cant stand it. time to decrease cal to 1700. hope this work cuz if it does not i am done, done, done!!!!
7/5 I'm down to 1600-1700 cal this week I worked out 6 days and lost only 0.2 pound. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!. I'm so mad i'm going to quit, this sucks and i am sick of the weekly failures! I'm so DONE with this crap.

My Goals:
Get down to 140 by June. That is about 30 pounds lighter than I am now. I would like to have another baby and I want to have this be my fit pregnancy. Ultimately I would like to be a size 4. i was about this size when I was 26 and working out everyday. I think this will be about 120 which I think will be a good weight since i'm about 5'4. It will take some time but i will get there.

I'm not going to be down to 140 by June unless I get gastric bipass. Maybe won't even make 150. I guess my new goal is to embrace my new way of eating, exercise everyday and accept that the weight will come of slowly.

My Program:
My goal is to
1. Eat all my calories
2. Eat 5 meals a day.
3. No extraneous snacking or tasting which is very hard as I have to feed two little ones who want to snack on goodies all day long.
4. Workout 6-days a week for 1hr
