Ok, so I really started today. I am ditching the unhealthy carbs and sugar and am low-carbing, sensibly. I also plan on walking/jogging on the treadmill....my goal is at least four times a week but I'd like to do five if I can.
I did extremely well with my eating today. Absolutely no cheating, although I would LOVE to have something sweet and junky right now.
My lowest this summer and early fall when I was being very diligent was 142. Before that, I was 170-something, so that was a great loss. I weighed myself this morning right after I woke up and I am up to 161, which is seriously overweight for my height and small frame. My goal is 125, which is a healthy weight for my height and frame/bone structure.
My mini-goal is 145 and I'd like to reach that weight by April 17th.
So, to organize this to make it easier for me to look back on my progress:
Start weight/date: 161 Jan. 17th
Mini goal: 145 April 17th
Final goal: 125 June 17th
Does this seem realistic to you? I am really going to do this. My plan is to come to this thread weekly or every two weeks to report any loss and to share whether or not I've been sticking to my eating plan and exercising.
