JennieGrl - I use Sparkpeople, too! My range is 1200-1550 calories/day. I like the daily summary... last night I was at 1261 calories but I failed to meet my fats and protein requirements. But for once, my sodium was within limit!
Good luck with the lingerie display for your bf! That made me smile!
teacher1 - congrats! what is your calorie limit? I'll try to check out Turbo Fire later... I'm searching for a DVD workout to do since I finished 30 Day Shred...
Welcome worktobedone00! You are in the right place. Yes it's harder for us shorties to hide the weight.
I started at 189lbs. When I got to 180, people have noticed I've lost weight. By 170, I got compliments on my progress. It just gets better from then. So there's something to look forward to! My first step was just introducing vegetables and fruits to my diet and cutting back on fast/junk food. Small changes at first... take it slow. This is my 16th month and I'm guessing I'll be needing another 16 months (or more!) to get near my goal weight.
WeightForMe - lol at the pregnancy question! I'm a pear so 20lbs go straight to my thighs... awful. Glad to see you back on the wagon
