Losing it

I got a free app for my iPhone last week called Lose It. It's a simple meal tracking application that allows you to put in the meals you eat and exercise you get and it calculates how many calories you take in each day. 
You can put in your goal of how many pounds you want to lose and when you want to lose it and it sets targets for how many calories you can take in and still lose the weight.
It's pretty interesting because I don't diet. I have changed my approach to eating. I've cut out almost all junk food and I don't go back for seconds, even if it's spaghetti. 
I made the decision to change in early summer last year and I've stuck with it. As a result, I've lost twenty five pounds. That's a bag of birdseed. 
This realization hit me Saturday when I was lugging in a bag of birdseed.  I never realized how heavy twenty five pounds was.
An added benefit is that my knees rarely bother me now.
This is probably more information that you wanted to hear about me, but it's getting late and I couldn't think of anything else to write there!
Have a great week.
