Started MFP again...

Hi I'm Heather!

At my previous job one of my co-workers had showed me this app I used it for a few days on and off but never stuck to it. I claimed i was unhappy with my weight and wanted to change but just wasnt motivated...I guess I really wasnt ready.

As of 4/1/13 I knew I was done with being over weight. About 5 years ago I was 140lbs and yet I still felt "big" at 5'7 age 18, but looking back I wish I was that size again. I got with my current bf at 19 and over the years have gained weight to where I was 210lbs.

I started back on MFP with using a 1200 cal diet to turn into lifestyle change. I have went to the gym doing mainly cardio and some circut training at home with our WII. I have lost 4lbs so far and I hope to continue to stay on track! I feel like I am more motivated and feel like I recently had the epiphany that I am ready to lose weight and feel good and healthy.

I love seeing/hearing success stories they are really what keeps me motivated and I love watching the Biggest Loser. My goal is to love 50lbs..I havent set a date maybe I should?..idk but I would like to one day be back to 140lbs again!

    Careful watching the Biggest Loser. Their methods aren't healthy, they manipulate the contestants and the results and you'll find yourself getting discouraged when you work your *kitten* off and don't drop 12 lbs in a week like they do on the show.

    Well done for getting started again! but has MFP recomended 1200cals, sound a bit low for your height/BMI - I on on 1200 and am only 5ft2.
    good luck

    MFP didnt recommend it, this was something I have decided on my own..yes 1200 seems like not enough but I make sure I get in alot of protien.

    Good luck with yours!
