I am going to lose this weight!~

There I said it. Now I have to follow through. I am doing something I cant really remember ever doing. Counting calories. I know I know, it sounds like drudgery, but there is a really cool website called live.strong.com and it has this Daily Plate feature. It allows you to plug in your food and keep track of your calories. Once you plug it in once it's there on your sidebar so it's easy to just click on your regular foods.

I lost over 25 lbs back in 2005 before we get Jamie so I know I can do this. Back then I didn't even count calories I just exercised...alot. (And stayed off Ice Cream) This time I am doing the opposite - except for the Ice Cream which I am still staying off.
Maybe I can reach the nirvana state of weight loss and do both someday - look how fast the weight peeled off me when I was rowing on the rowing machine 3 or more times per week!
I just don't seem to have the energy, time or motivation for working out yet, so for now I am just counting.
I have lost 3 lbs in 2 weeks. 34 lbs to go to my ideal weight.

I lost 40 pounds in 7 months using Weightwatchers online. It's just a food/exercise journal, but it sure worked! I don't have a lot of time for exercise that doesn't include lots of kids, and it's still possible on that program. If this doesn't work for you it might be worth a shot. Good luck!
