If I can do it you can.

Hi all just thought I would share my story. Last September I decided to change my weight after being unhappy for ages and just had enough of being fat. I joined MFP and stuck with the calories it told me. I started using a treadmill and did that 4-5 times a week.
I never changed the foods I enjoy eating I just reduced my portions and got a food scale which I weigh everything on and swear by now.
I stuck with 1200 calories a day to start with but soon realised I needed more and went up to 1500. Every night I would save myself some calories to enjoy a treat every night and it really helped me stuck to it as it gave me something to look forward to.
Last few months I got a fitbit as well and increased my activity more I love walking and always make sure I try and get at least 15,000 steps a day. I'm currently maintaining and eating 1,900 a day and still trying to find the right number to stop losing and stay the same.
So my advice to you all is eat less and move more and weigh everything and get yourself in the right frame of mind. You have to work hard to get the results you want.
I'm 5 foot 1 and 31 years old and went from a dress size 20 to a dress size 10 and I'm 1 pound of a 5 stone loss x 54o1te9wm1ar.jpg
