Smile Hi!

Hello! My name is Shaunna, I'm 23, I'm currently a stay at home mom and a full time Nursing student. I never had a weight problem until after I had my first son, then I gained weight like crazy and have been over weight for about 5 years now, luckily I didn't gain any more after my second son last year! I've always wanted to get back to my "normal" size but up until now I never really actively tried to do anything about it.
I keep reading about all these different diets and things but I think I am just going to start out counting calories (loosely... I suck at keeping track of things!) and cutting out the junk and sodas (I'm totally addicted) and trying my best to be more active every day.

Hi Shaunna! Counting calories gets easier the longer you do it.

Hi Shaunna and welcome to 3FC.

I am a calorie counter and I keep track of my calories and even exercise at sparkpeople.com for free

Good luck with your goals.

Hugs
Michelle

You know until you just said it I have never thought about getting down to my long ago pre-pregnancy weight of 128. Wow, wouldn't that be a shocker to my family and friends. Something to think about once I reach 150

For me it wasn't as hard as I thought it would to cut out the junk food, fried foods and the sodas. I read on a thread, why waste my daily calories on things that are gonna keep me from reaching my goals ... and I said to myself I can do this So far so good.

This is so true. When I first started it drove me crazy, and I am only on day 8. (I have counted calories before) but didn't find out until recently about finding my actual calorie needs, for my age and weight. I also didn't know until 3FC that I was supposed to also pay attention to the amount of sodium as well as the fat. I am determined to stay on point this time around of course with the help of 3FC I made it through my first weekend which was tough. Ok I'm a chatter box, I'm done

Best of luck to us in our journeys.
