Thank you!! (Thank you Kathy as well) I started using fitday and slowly started lowering my calories daily. Then monitoring my water intake and limiting myself to water all day and only 1 cup of sweet tea or soda a day (I am the type of person where I HAVE to have some indulgence or else I fall off the wagon!) So I made it into a game. Every Monday morning I'd weigh myself, then try to eat better choices through the week and exercise more (I do NOT like gyms but CURVES was amazing and helped me get most of it off) if I don't go to Curves, I started doing 4-5 dances per night with the Xbox hip-hop dance and dance central games. This was so much fun plus got me off the the couch and moving after work. On the weekends, I try to do 1 thing more than the previous weekend, such as hiking, walking, biking, whatever. Slowing it's been coming off. I fell off the wagon recently and gained back 6 lbs but I'm back on track now!
