Losing weight

Last week my friend and I read an article about a man who ate whatever he wanted just watched his calorie intake and lost 27lbs. We figured we could do it!!

On Wednesday Brandon and I started counting our calories. We are both set at 1500 calories. We both have been doing great. I stepped on a scale 2 weeks ago at my parents and figured I would use that weight as my starting weight.

My starting weight was 187. My goal is to lose 3lbs a week. I lost my 3lbs from last week bringing me to 184. My goal weight is 155 only 29lbs to go!!

With Thanksgiving coming up I am scared, but know that portion control is KEY!! I figure I need to blog about it to keep myself motivated to lose the weight.

Brandon and I are having our Church wedding 11-5-11 and I need to look GREAT! I don't want to look at my wedding pictures and be disappointed because of my weight.

I want to be healthy for me, my kids and my husband. I want to be around to watch them grow. So ladies keep me motivated!!


  1. You can do it Katie! I'm so proud of you!

  2. Way to go Katie! After this baby, its time for serious diet and more excuses!!

  3. Thanks girls!

    Julie when I was pregnant with Miles I worked out every day (Walked 2 miles) and ate really good. I only gained 10lbs my entire pregnancy. I swore I would keep it up after he was born. Obviously I didn't and I am the same size I was the day I came home from the hospital!!
