And So it Begins

Ok, so the first post of the weight loss journey goes here. I have decided to make my main goal to lose 100lbs at the minimum loss of 4lbs each month. While I would like to lose much more than that every month, I am attempting to keep the goals as realistic as possible to avoid disappointment, and also to be able to keep off the weight. It is recommended people lose 1-2lbs each week, which would be 4-8lbs a month (lets aim for the 8 but be satisfied with 4). I always did have a lot of muscle and am medium boned so think that my goal weight would be healthy. Before my first pregnancy I was about 155lbs and was happy with the weight. Nobody actually believed that’s what I weighed. As I near the goal I may decide to stick with 150lbs or maybe lose some more depending on how I feel. For my height my ideal weight would be 111.2 lbs – 150.2 lbs according to BMI recommendations. You can check out your ideal weight here.

I don’t really have a method to my madness yet. At this point I want to concentrate on eating healthier in general, and cutting back on carbs and sugar. I don’t have a specific diet plan that I’m following right now. I want to take this as slow and make the smallest changes as possible so hopefully I can stick with this. Please share the plans that have worked for you. Do you have a weight loss blog? Post the link in the comments so I can follow you and we can share ideas!

The current stats are as follows….
Height: 5’5
Weight: 249.8lbs
BMI: 41.6
Goals:
Height: Well wouldn’t it be nice if we could change this to our advantage?
Weight: 150lbs
BMI: 25

Don’t mind my hideous wallpaper…I rent or it’d be gone! I so love taking pictures…I may be traumatized by the end of this. Luckily I spared you the stereotypical black sports bra/short shorts picture most post. I couldn’t bring myself to be that free with it all. I don’t want to look at myself or let the boyfriend look let alone all of you people (no offense).
