Waist Watcher Wednesdays

As I posted yesterday in my 2012 Resolutions, I am joining up with Rachael at You, Me, and Natalie for Wasit Watcher Wednesdays. I encourage you to join in and remember that..

"If you want something you'll make it happen, if you don't, then you never really did"


"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone"

I do not own a scale yet, but will get one soon hopefully.

If you look at my 2012 Resolution post you'll see everything I'm doing to work towards this goal. I know that I can do this, I just need to stay motivated!

I also downloaded a free app last night on my ipod called "My Fitness Pal". After inputting my height, weight, goal, approximate activity, estimated workouts, and my goal of 1 lb./week it computed my ideal Calorie intake. It's an awesome app so far and it allows you to track everything you eat. I'm not big into calorie counting usually because I can never seem to find the foods I've eaten, but this app has it all. I swear!

My Calorie intake should be around 1780 daily.
My ultimate goal is to reach 150 lbs, possibly more or less, it all depends what it takes for me to get my flat, toned stomach back. That's my real goal here.


Weight: 167 lbs. (approximate)

BMI: 24.7

Bust: 37"
Chest: 32"
Waist: 31"
Hips: 36 1/2"
Thighs: 25"
Calfs: 16"
Upper Arms: 11 3/4"
Forearms: 9"

If you'd like to join in post here or link up with us over at You, Me, and Natalie!

Signing off,
Ida Jade

LOVE IT! I just downloaded the app too. I am officially counting calories!! GOD HELP ME.

Can I just say that I am forever jealous of your measurements? lol

I'm so excited to have you doing this with me, even though we aren't running together I still feel like we're doing this "together" =)

Sending you sunshine,

Same here, I went over the first day I used it. So not used to it, but I did manage to stay under by 100 calories yesterday. So..go, me! haha!

I know, I know..I should be happy with it to, but it's hard when even I look back at the wedding and those measurements were less and I felt GREAT about myself. I want that feeling back. It's not like I look in the mirror now and I'm disgusted or anything, but there are far less days where I feel I look good. Okay, time to stop complaining and make change. =)

I'm excited to be doing it too! Can't wait for Spring though, when we CAN and WILL run together again.
