weight and measurements

so yesterday was my weigh in day..... i gained 3 lbs, all my measurements have stayed the same except my thighs that went down 1 inch(although since it was a different person they prob measured wrong)  my BMI is 45% AHHH shes like for your age it should be 22% dont worry hun it will take a while but you will get that number down.... im like yea i know ive lost and gained weight numerous times it doesnt bother me, yea id ike to be skinny but id also like it to happen on its own like it did before without me exercising lol. granted i didnt have healthy eating habbits either - was practically starving myself lol. and i dont want to go that route again....

How to lose 100 pounds

found this article and thought it was interesting of course most is common sense anyways its just me needing to rethink how/what i eat.

How to Lose 100 Pounds: It Starts With Counting Calories
Counting calories is going to be a part of this process. Here are guidelines to follow:
  • If you want to lose a pound a week, you have to cut out 3,500 calories, or roughly 500 calories a day.
  • You never want to eat fewer than 1,200 calories a day, “and that’s on the low end,” says Curtis. You can always increase your physical activity, however.
  • You can safely aim to lose 1 percent of your body weight per week; a woman weighing 250 pounds should aim for a 2.5-pound loss per week, eating about 1,250 calories less per day.
  • Counting calories involves not just the food you eat, but also the calories you burn through exercise.
  • Keep a journal of what you ate, how much you exercised, and your thoughts and feelings at those times, and limit yourself to one weekly weigh-in to avoid focusing too much on the scale.
Good nutrition is key, says Curtis. Many people who want to lose 100 pounds are used to eating foods that are high in calories and low in nutrition. The challenge is to practice the reverse: Learn to eat the correct portions of foods that are low in calories but high in nutrition, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy.

How long it will take to lose 100 pounds varies — a 250-pound woman might need 40 weeks or more to achieve her goal — but Curtis recommends that you develop weekly and monthly goals that will help you track your progress and avoid becoming overwhelmed or discouraged. Attainable, feel-good goals include:
  • Being able to get down on the floor and play with your children or grandchildren
  • Being able to walk around the mall without feeling short of breath
  • Being able to do 20 minutes of physical activity three days a week — mornings are best, says Curtis (and work up to 30 minutes most days of the week)
  • Eating four servings of fruit or veggies every day of the week
  • Eating a healthy breakfast every day that includes a low-fat protein

How to Lose 100 Pounds: Exercise Is Non-Negotiable
Being physically active is an essential part of losing 100 pounds. “This was the biggest challenge for our clients,” says Curtis. “They would say they couldn’t do it because of their ankle or their back pain. But everybody can do an exercise program.”
Curtis recommends:
  • If you have a lot of joint pain, start with chair or water-based exercises.
  • Try walking short distances and gradually building up your endurance.
  • Involve a physical trainer or an exercise buddy as you get moving again.
How to Lose 100 Pounds: The Aftermath
Many people worry about how their body will look once they lose 100 pounds. This “depends on your age and condition of the skin,” says Curtis. “Some people’s skin will retract. For some it will not.” Once you reach your goal, if you find that sagging skin bothers you, you might want to investigate cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin.
Of course, the health and fitness advantages of losing 100 pounds, plus how much better you will look and feel in clothes, will more than make up for any after-effects of your overweight. With determination and a few smart diet strategies, you can achieve your goal.

Best kind of exercise is the kind that doesnt feel like exercise!

So yesterday started off not so healthy considering I had a whole box of mac and cheese for breakfast... oops... But it got better, and today i had a blueberry waffle for breakfast and yummy salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing for lunch.

I've got "L" the 15 month old I take care of "exercising" with me during the day its so cute! we"ll lay on the floor and she will copy me as i lift my legs up and down and she'll say up, down, up, down, while moving her legs up and down with me. We also get outside alot now that its starting to get nice again. we take walks and have "races" its fun:) the best kind of exercise is the kind that doesn't feel like exercise!
