I'm fat and I'm staying fat so obviously I eat too much, but to see it in my tracker is still a wow. No wonder I'm so fat. I regularly eat well over 2,000 calories a day. Last week was mainly about getting a clear picture of where I am starting. This week I am going to focus on getting in my 8 glasses of water everyday. I noticed last week that I am not drinking nearly enough water. I will also be trying to replace pop and other sugary drinks with water to help get me there and to cut some calories. I am not going to worry about food changes this week. That will come in the near future. I am incorporating exercise only on days were it is nice enough for my daughter and I to take a walk. This is Michigan so that can change on an hourly basis. :) A more formal/regular exercise plan is in the future as well. I am taking it slow this time. Too much too fast is part of why I've failed in the past. Slow and steady wins the race. On a side note, I had to stop wearing my wedding ring a few months ago since my fingers were too swollen from the wonder that is pregnancy. I was able to get in back on today for the first time. :)

    Congrats on having another baby! Exciting. Increasing your water consumption is important. I do much better with water in the summer. Cold and Wet weather does not motivate me to fill my water bottle. Thanks for the motivation, I'll try to increase my water intake also.
