So day one of my new goal for losing 10 pounds by Oct. 31 went like this:
Calories in: About 1550
Calories out: 456
Click here to see what I ate, and how much I exercised.
Every time I wanted to be lazy or eat more than I should have, I thought, "Real Simple magazine, Shawnee! Think of all the glorious pages of organization, home decor, fashion, and cooking." :) Hopefully it is enough to motivate me to lose the weight.
BTW, in order for my to lose weight at a healthy rate, SparkPeople said I can't lose it any sooner than Nov. 1. :P
Oh and according to SP, my calorie consumption should be between 1250 and 1540. I should burn at least 288 calories a day.
