Time for change.

I just found a website that I am stoked about! CalorieCount.com

Basically, it's one of those websites that you set up an account for, put your weight and BMI in, your attained goal and then log your food intake and activities each day. Once you enter your weight and BMI they calculate a healthy amount of calories for you to consume each day in order to attain your goal. It seems pretty effective. Of course, this is only day one :)

I'm excited about doing it though. I've been REALLY down about my body lately. Like I've said before, I know I'm not "fat" but I used to be so in shape and healthy and I'm not anymore, at all! I just want my old body back and I'm at the point now where I'm getting desperate. So, I'm going to try this calorie count thing and get back to the gym for some hardcore kick your butt spin class and workout routines. I have to...I need to. I don't have the metabolism that I used to anymore :( I used to be able to eat anything and everything and not gain a pound. What I would give for that again! I never struggled with my weight and appearance until lately and it's not a good feeling. So, I'm going to do something about it rather than sit around and mope. I need to get off my butt and WORK IT! haha

No more late night runs to Whataburger for those beloved french fries with chicken gravy (sounds weird but it is SO good) and large Dr Pepper's for this girl!

Hold me to it! ;)

I can relate to this post so well. While I too, know I am not fat, I can't help but be totally unhappy with the muffin top that is slowly getting larger. Thanks for the honest talk, and I'm heading to caloriecount.com as well!

I just went to this site and made myself an account! Thank you so much for suggesting it! I really think having this to track me is going to be great and helpful!

Good for you girl and I'm glad we don't have a Whataburger near us! :)!

Morgan said...

I saw Katie mention it, you are from Tx too? I live in Bryan/College Station, Tx!

Christina said...

Well, I think you look great! I completely relate and I know that what other people think doesn't matter as much as how you feel, but sometimes it's nice to hear anyway. We are our own worst critic.

It's fabulous that you're working out and eating healthy!

I'm also pretty sure that I'm thankful there are no Whataburger joints in my neck of the woods :)

I too am jumping on the fitness bandwagon! I was so in shape in college, but those days are long gone! haha, I look at a bag of chips and gain 5lbs! :) You're pictures on your sidebar as absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by my blog..I look foward to keeping up with yours :)

I can totally relate to this post and I am right there with you! I hate working out and counting cals (and I cry to my husband about it) but the results are priceless. We can do this!!! Email me if you ever need to vent, I'm here to listen and complain with you, ha!

We can do this friend!

OMG Whataburger is holy....I didn't know that Florida had Whataburgers. I remember back in 1995 my uncle was saying that what he missed most about Texas is Whataburger. Whataburger is big in Texas..they must have gone to Florida.
