Spring has Sprung ( hardly)... and let the Diet Begin

This winter has set me back.....way back. 

                      The winter blues hit hard.

                      The doldrums sucked the life out of me

                       The dread of snow storms and constant cold and dark made me over eat...'cause what else was there to do anyway?....and no one was going to see the extra pounds under all those layers right right?....wrong!


I neglected my waistline so much that it has been replaced by a spare tire.

I even began to look at the maternity section in Target and thought...."Hmm I wonder if any of that stuff is on sale".
                                     


This looks so comfy
             Man I could totally rock this!

Soooo now that it is Spring on the Calender ( someone please let Mother Nature Know and tell her to Knock it off with the snow already!)

I am on a diet.......again

I cant afford a gym membership...or to order those Nutra-System meals either.
 This time My Darling Daughter downloaded the App "My Plate" to my phone....and I have to say it is really helping me stay on track. You put in some info about yourself and you are off.

You simply type in whatever you eat and it will tell you how many calories you have taken in and how much you have left for the rest of the day. You can even scan the bar codes of packages and it will calculate how many calories are there too.


So far I have lost three pounds. I'm not starving myself or trying to lose ten pounds in a week.


My goal is to lose 25-30...in however time it takes me...

                               slow and steady.... 
                                               and maybe this tortoise will finally win the race!
