    Calorie Counting - 1200/day
    Hey!

    I'm Jess, I'm Eighteen years old and on my last weigh in I was 132lbs with a BMI of 22.3. My eventual goal is to be around 115lbs. For now, I am using MyFitnessPal to count my calories. According to the website I will lose 7.5lbs by August 17th if I follow my plan. I am allowed to eat 1230 calories a day.

    I will update this page when I can!

    You will get used to it, find things that you can save Kcals on, I try and eat more veg and fruit as the kcals will be less.

    First few days are always a bit bumpy. You look fab in your pic tho. Have you checked what your BMI will be at 115? I'm rubbish at BMI Thingy wotsits but I thought 22 was already a pretty healthy number?
    Hope the munchies pass you by lol maybe have a glass of water an a soak in the bath to distract yourself :) if you really have to eat then stay off the peanuts lol they are wicked high cal ;) but SOOOOO delicious!!

    Hi,

    Get chugging that water, it really helped with my hunger pangs when I started. Still do it now, and I swear by it. :D

    You will be fine, it just takes a week or so to adjust to things.
    Stay away from those peanuts lady!!! :D

    Just gave it a quick look. It's not for me, but it obviously works for many people. Not sure I like the sound of it though :)
