Hello, my name is Amanda. I was doing really good with working out and eating right but after I started working I kind of fell off the wagon :( But, now I am back and I am trying so hard to stay dedicated! I am hoping that doing this journal and joining challenges will give me the extra motivation I need to make a lifestyle change and stick to it. My goal is to lose 20 lbs and make an overall lifestyle committment to eating healthy not just for me but so I can be a positive role model for my children as well. I am excited for this journey :)
*I am going to start being accountable for my weight in my journal every tuesday so hopefully I don't forget...here it goes!*
Ok its been a week since I posted and not to much happened in that week. However all junk food is out of the house and I went grocery shopping yesterday and bought so many vegetables and fish. I am so excited! I am also down 2.2 lbs!!!!! Going to do Zumba and taking the dog for a walk later :)
I used to use the myfitnesspal app but now I use the LoseIt app. I like different things from each one but I stick with LoseIt bc I have friends that use it so it helps motivate me. Honestly what keeps me motivated is weighing myself in. When I go to eat something and I see how many calories it is if I don't have that many calories available then eating it is not worth how I will feel later. Know what I mean? I would rather use my calories towards healthy food that will fill me rather than junk food/sweets(which is my weakness) that will not take away my hunger.
Are you using anything to help track your calorie intake and output? Just wondering how you keep yourself positive and motivated/ successful.
Weighed myself this morning and I am down another pound!!!! Counted my calories for today and I did great! Eggplant lasagna for dinner and then walking the dog :)
