I was horrible for a month. I gained 6 lbs back. I finally lost them after a couple weeks of being good. I have actually lost 7 lbs. You can do this. Just buckle down and be good over the weekends and you can lose that 3 lbs in no time. You can do this!

I'm baaaaaaack!!!!!

I took a hiatus from counting calories. Life got too stressful without having to worry about what I was putting in my mouth. But now it's April and there is exactly 1 month left until my birthday (plus 1 day, but I celebrate the whole month :) ) and while I won't hit my super out of reach 40 pound loss goal by then, I can pull off another 5 pounds if I'm careful with my food.

The good news is that while I wasn't counting calories, I did go to my workout classes very regularly, usually 5-6 times a week and I even dropped a jeans size. So I'm wearing (okay, squeezing into) size 8s now!

Prior to stopping, I was aiming for 1200 calories per day, but I think I will up that to 1500. I am slightly up from where I ended weight wise, but I'm also on my period so I'm not gonna be down about it!

ETA: I keep changing my mind on the 1500. I don't know what I'm doing yet.
