One-week weigh in: 169.2 pounds. Lost 3.6 pounds in my first week! :-)
***

Monday I started tracking my calories using MFP and Tuesday I started using my Body Bugg.

My last two days without working out, I burned 2070-2170 calories, and ate around 1500 calories. So about a 650 daily deficit.

I'm currently 172.8 pounds and hoping to get down to 140 by Thanksgiving? Does this sound reasonable?

I'll post starting pics in my replies :-)


Edit: New plan: weight training. Won't lose much weight, but my body will surely change.

Starting pics; July 25th

Next pics: August 8th

Today (August 13th)


Notice any difference???

the first step is always the hardest. but I know you can do it and succeed on anything you set your mind too. Keep up the good work. :)

Thanks! I'm super excited! :-) I'm going to start insanity next week so I'll probably post pics every two weeks!

I am really looking forward to your updates! 

Way to go for trying insanity!!!  I think 32lbs by thanksgiving is really ambitious, but probably doable if you stay motivated!

Good luck!

Mommy to three boys, ages 5, 4 and 2, with a girl just born on June 8th!
