I believe this is week 41. We missed a couple of weeks so I am starting this up again.


Please join us as we all work toward our goals to be healthier and fitter!

How Does this Work?

On Mondays:
Post your starting weight for the week, post goals for the week, and report on the prior week.

Throughout week come on back and let us know how you are doing. (The good, not so good and the awesome.)

I started in January at 158 pounds, putting me well within the obese category. My ideal weight is only about 100 pounds. I lost pretty steadily at about a pound a week for months. Now I have been sitting on a plateau for a month, varying between 115 and 118. Today I am 115.5. The plateau was a result of me eating more and experimenting somewhat with maintenance. But I need to get down to at least 110 so back restricting calories to about 1200 to 1300 a day, losing about a half a pound a week.

My goal for next week: Between 114.5 and 115.

I had been down to 282 and settled in... Couldn't lose, but wasn't gaining. Then, I fell off the wagon and such for . But got a fire again... I had made it back to 294 and needed to do more. I had suffered some injuries, got better, had new injuries. Work schedule was odd. And then my biggest setback of all. My bike crash. In the hospital for 3 weeks. I lost 10-15 pounds in the hospital. Haven't been keeping good track otherwise. But I am being conscious of what and how much I'm eating. Always sipping water. I know some of the continued loss is my body healing. At some point soon, I need to set goals again. And get a plan of whats next.
