So I found a webpage that I can put in what I eat and counts calories each day. If I eat only 1600 calories each day for the next 3 years I can get down to my "target" weight. (This is the website defined weight not my defined weight, I don't know what that is.) So started that out today. Did not make the 1600 ceiling. Not even close. BUT it is keeping it in my head so even though it may take me awhile to get down to 1600 calories/day at least I'll be THINKING about calories to maybe help reduce the number I take in.
While at BlogHer I got my cholesterol and sugars checked. I rocked all my numbers (well except the BMI and if that was fine, I wouldn't need to lose 15 lbs now would I?). That was kind of exciting since I don't think I've had those tests done in years.
