Well since November 27th! That is just ridiculous. It's my fault too, since I'm always going off and on with my eating healthy. I really need to get into the 250's, that's my main goal right now.

You're not far from your goal...when you really look at it, to lose 1 pound, all you have to do is eliminate 3,500 calories. Now make that you goal for this week...to eliminate 3,500 calories from your diet. Seems simple enough, no? So how are you going to do that? I'll give you some tips, but you need to decide what will really work for you...Let's say you take a walk...do you have enough time to walk for 30minutes everyday? 7 days of walking for 30 minutes will eliminate approx 525 calories! If you walk for 1 hour a day that's 1,050 calories in only one week! So, what about food, watching your food intake will really help eliminate calories...how about you drink nothing but water instead of juice/pop this week...is that possible? That alone can easily eliminate 2,520 calories in a week! Plus water increases metabolism (bonus!) & there you have it, one pound GONE in a week! & that's without even changing your actual eating habits! So now that you've lost one pound in one week, how about next week you do this again, AND start making small changes to your diet...say,having fruit (or even better, berries) for dessert instead of cake or ice cream or whatever...or picking the healthier options for some of your meals (whole wheat bread over white, mustard instead of mayo)...you'll be surprised at how big of a difference all this makes! Just take it ONE DAY AT A TIME! you can do it! :)
