Back at it again starting April 14, 2014. I gained back almost all of the weight that I lost and just look and feel horrible. I am restarting again and feel confident that I will make it stick this time around. I now need to lose about 140 pounds. I restarted my ticker at 0 pounds lost (even though it is really 20 pounds but, if I am going to restart, then I think mentally I need to really restart from scratch),
ORIGINALLY started with MFP and my diet on 5/2/11 and had 160 pounds+ to lose. I fell off the bandwagon in July of 2011 (lost about 20 pounds during those 2 months). Then got back on
January of 2012 and lost 80 pounds that year and some more in early 2013!
I am married with 2 sons (22 and 15), a golden retriever named Bailey, and cocker spaniel named Molly. My ticker pic is my bearded dragon named Yoshi. I was NOT overweight growing up and started to gain, and gain and gain after my kids were born (which were 7 years apart). I am 5'10" tall. I have been fortunate that I have not had any weight related health problems (ever) with the exception of bad knees. My blood pressure, sugar and all numbers are now and have always been suprisingly good. I was however diagnosed with PCOS in December of 2012 (which I think I have probably had most of my adult life but just didn't know it). This disease does make it difficult to lose weight.
I am determined to lose this weight and get my life back!
GOALS (effective April 2014):
Goal 1: lose 20 pounds (mini goal)
Goal 2: lose 35 pounds (major goal) - 1/4 way there!
Goal 3: lose 45 pounds (mini goal) - less than 100 lbs overweight
Goal 4: lose 64 pounds (mini goal) - weight after 2nd baby born!
Goal 5: lose 70 pounds (major goal) - 1/2 way there!
Goal 6: lose 88 pounds (mini goal) - back to where I was before "regain"
Goal 7: lose 100 pounds (major goal)
Goal 8: lose 105 pounds (major goal) - 3/4 way there!
Goal 9: lose 125 pounds (mini goal) - weight after 1st baby born!
Goal 10: lose 140 pounds (major goal) - estimated goal weight based on late teens)
Why I want to get in shape
Want to ride a roller coaster again, do outdoor phsyical activities, and not have to pay for first class to fit on the plane. I also just want to feel and look better, have more stamina and improve my health.
- my family
- massive shopping extravaganzas!
- ultimate weight loss goal is 2 pounds a week (dreaming???)
- More realistic goal is 1.5 pounds a week
