A lb a week for 7 wks starting today :-)

Ive set myself a goal I think is achieveable.
Im 5ft 5" and 13 st. Id like to lose half a stone by Christmas or a lb a week over the next seven wks. Im going to weigh in every Sunday.
Last weigh in will be Sunday 23 Dec. I will update every Sunday night.
I will be using My Fitness Pal (name: puffin2nuffin). I am on 1200 cals a day, but I can get back cals frm exercise - using this method earlier this yr I lost a st. I know it wont be 1200 every day but thats what I want to average over the week. This is about 300 cals for breakfast, 400 cals for lunch & 500 cals for dinner. Breakfast is porridge ir fruit, lunch is usually soup & dinner varies (but lots of veg). If I snack then I need to do more exercise :-)

Im LTTTC and on waiting list for IVF/ICSI so thats also my motivation.
Feel free to join me :-)

Count me in threebirds I've been trying to lose 10 lb for over a year. I think i do enough exercise but eat a lot of rubbish so hoping by sharing I will cut it out and win that way... Just been to set up my fitness pal and apparently I've already got an account:blush:

Bravemom Nov 4th, 2012 11:34 AM
