My plan to be a loser...

I have many reasons...I have blogged about Dieting...and Exercising...but this time...it's not just about me...I mean...ugh...it hasn't just been about me in the past...but...I'm done. I want a child, and to do that, we have to do IVF. (unless my dear baby Jesus wants to work a miracle...we are always open to that!) So I need to lose weight...at least 25 pounds to start IVF...but I would love to lose 50+! I want to be healthier, I don't want heart problems, I don't want breathing problems, I would love to stop snoring at night, for my knees not to ache at the end of the night, for my belly to stop, well, 'dunloppin' over my pants. I want to wear cute clothes. I want to be sexy. I want to walk up stairs without getting out of breath. I want to have a baby. It's just....I want to be thinner...but I digress...I know I have said this all before.

*EDIT- For those of you wondering, the reason I have to lose weight for IVF is because the office I am with, it is their anesthesiologist rule regarding the related procedures. He likes the patients BMI to be 39 or lower. So that's why I have to lost the weight, cause I am over that BMI...unfortunately.

But I am going to do it!! And I have found some great tools to help me this time around, for FREE!

First off...Sparkpeople.com
It's FREE and it's AMAZING. I can track all of my food...just like on WW.com...but...for...FREE! See...


That's my info so far today...and see that Weekly Progress right above? That falls right in line with where I need to be to lose weight, per the Calorie/Weight Loss index.

"
These results will help you to know how many calories you need to maintain your current weight, and the number of calories needed per day to achieve your goal weight in a healthy, steady manner.

You need 2364.6 calories per day to maintain your current weight without exercise. (NO THANKS...I wanna LOOOOOOSSEE!!)

You need 2151.9 calories per day to reach your goal weight slowly and maintain that weight without exercise.

If you reduce your current caloric intake to 1864.6 calories per day you will lose one pound per week without exercise.(This is what I am floating around, per Sparkpeople.com)

If you increase your current caloric intake to 2864.6 calories per day, you will gain one pound per week." (Nope...let's not do that!)

So there you have it....Doesn't seem to bad, I just need to chart my information (which I did religiously on weight watchers) and drop these pounds! I will keep you posted! Any encouragement and/or tips are greatly appreciated! Oh and if you wanna lose too...check out Sparkpeople.com and say that "Slickslady" sent ya! :)

Oh April, I could just cry right now.
I wish we lived closer together, we are so going through the same thing at the SAME TIME!

I love you, and I believe in you. And I believe in our God to help us, carry us when we are not strong enough, and never ever let us down.

He can move mountains, you know :)

Hey, when I did WW right before I got pregnant this time, Andrew found a website where a man made an excel spreadsheet that IS the WW program. It's free, and the spreadsheet figures points and does core or flex. If you want me to send it to you, let me know.
