65 Down - 8 Up - and Hopefully on the downslide again...


My Fitness Pal .com is my friend - it helped me shed the much needed weight last year. This year, to "Inspire me" they sent me a graph of what my weight loss looked like last year. And you know what, it totally DID inspire me! Look at that!

Weighing in at 265 I started making choices, albeit small ones to cut a calorie here and there. I started out eating 1,700 calories a day, and then slowly, My Fitness Pal cut them to help me drop more pounds. And no, I didn't really drop 15 pounds right off the bat, I actually just didn't really know how to record my weight, but you can see I got the hang of it and now I'm right around 208.

I would make excuses for the "flat line" in August, and then the gain in December, but if your a regular reader here, you can totally tell that I'm a stress eater and August - December was stressful!

Either way, I adorned the graph with a couple photos that really tell the whole story. The photo on the left was taken in Dallas Texas in July of 2012 - The photo on the right was taken in October this year.

I look better, I dress better and I FEEL better!

So, back on the horse I go!
