Default Women of Color Calorie Counters

Hi I want to start a thread for women of color.Thats means everybody!!!! This is to support each other through a long journey of weight loss and keeping it off.So we can be there for our children, grandchildren, and live longer.

My name is Dee and I have been trying to control my weight since I was 12.So its been almost 15 years trying to keep it off.My short goal is to get under 200 lbs.

Hi Dee! Great idea. My name is Cassie, and I am 22 years old, and the mother of 2 gorgeous children.

I don't write down everything I eat, but I do keep a general idea of how many calories I am getting; I try to stay between 1400~1600...but it's more like 1800. LOL! It's working though!

You are my inspiration right now.

1400 -1600 is not that bad. I have been trying to stay in the 1300-1700 range last week I was in the oh...2000's.This half of the week I have been doing at least 1450 on the average. So I cant wait to see my weight in results monday.

I have to say that I admire everyone's calorie range! I've JUST managed to lower my calories to 2,000.

Welcome University Princess

2000 is a good range to start out. I am in that range too often .I am trying to be like susan and be at 1200-1500 eventually. Where are you from?

Ever join a group and then FORGET that you joined it? Haha, that's what happened to me...sorry ladies!
Dee, to answer your questions, I have been watching my calorie intake since Feb 2nd, 2006. It has worked for me....I have lost 45lbs so far, but it could be more if I wasn't soooo addicted to chocolate.
I don't have a pic of me on here, but there is a link to my MySpace page in my siggy, and on that page you will find pics of me and my children, and if you look reeeeeeeeeeeally hard, you'll find one of my hubby....I think it's in my slideshow, but if not, he is #1 on my friends list. If any of you have MySpace, feel free to add me!
