I started this blog in July of 2011 at a weight of about 137. I expected to be blogging in maintenance mode, but never made it to my goal of 129. I’ve had lots of ups and downs. Today I am 3.4 pounds away from that goal, at 132.4. I’ve only been in the 132’s 4 days in my adult life, and two of them were this week. Yay!
It has been a long process but I have realized that no special diet works for me. I have tried low carb, high fat, Weight Watchers, Atkins, Trim Healthy Mama, the list goes on and on. The only time I have been really successful is when I track my food in and out, and create a calorie deficit.
I am still using myfitnesspal to track my calories in, and using my Fitbit to track my calories out. I am using Curves and my treadmill as my primary ways of getting exercise, and the family has gotten more active since I started wearing my Fitbit, which is a win win situation.
I don’t really feel like blogging anymore, mostly because I am so busy with home school and my high maintenance family that I need to spend the energy taking care of them and not writing down this weight loss stuff anymore. So I will keep the blog up for now, so you can access recipes and stuff but I think that once I hit my goal of 129 I will likely close the blog. I just don’t have anything else to add to it. It’s been fun, and those of you who’ve been around, reading and commenting for the last four years, I’d love to keep in contact with you on myfitnesspal. Leave me a message here if you need my contact info for that!
