Katie: Week 32

Guess what skinnies?!...

Current weight: 133 pounds
Last week's weight: 135 pounds
Total weight loss: 37 pounds (Yay!)

Woot wooooot!  Only 8 pounds to go!!  Are you excited?!  I'm excited. 

Well, I had planned to share some of the meals that I've been eating lately, but my computer is running really slow right now.  So I think I'll just end here and if my computer recovers maybe I'll come back again later today and share some more.

In the mean time, have you tried myfitnesspal.com yet?

You enter your current weight, goal weight, and how fast you'd like to get there.
It tells you how many calories to eat per day.
You enter in your daily weight, exercise, and the foods you eat.
It has a huge database of foods and exercises so you can input everything accurately.
You can even save meals you eat frequently so it goes even faster.
The more you exercise the more calories you're allotted for that day.
Follow the numbers.
See the numbers on the scale go down.
Realize how much more you were eating before and feel a little grossed out.
It really has changed my whole mentality.
And I'm not being paid to say this.
Just trying to share the love.

Okay, I'm done now.  My computer is being a sloth this morning.  Time to reboot.  Happy Tuesday!

P.S. A quick little shout out to my friend Erin I ran into yesterday.  She told me she always checks up on me to see my progress here.  That made me happy.  Hi Erin!

Hi Katie! And now I get to be JEALOUS, because after I told you I've been about the same weight as you every week, now you're beating me! I'm still at 135. Dang it all. It was fun to see you in real life!

Thank you so much for posting about MyFitnessPal.com a little while back. I looked at the site and decided immediately that it is just what I need to keep my (baby) weight loss goals on track. I linked to your blog on my post about my own goals at http://finallyfinishedcrafts.blogspot.com/2010/08/losing-that-baby-weight.html. I lost 2 lbs last week by watching my calories and sweating my butt off on the elliptical trainer. Yay!

Congrats on doing so well on your own goals. Isn't success so motivating?!
