Weigh in - Starting Over & Weekly Goals

Weight on 11/26/12: 246.6

Weight this week: 258.6

12 pounds GAINED this week

Lowest Weight Recorded: 232.2 on 4/22/12

70.8 pounds lost since June 2010

Well, here it is. The "honesty" post fessing up to how much weight I gained at the end of 2012. In full disclosure, my weight the day after returning from my New Year's trip to New Orleans was 264, so I've managed to lost about 6 pounds in the last  9 days.

So, where do I go from here?

Last week at the Body Baggage for Misfits group, I made the goal to lose 20 lbs by March 31st. I'm counting today's weight was my "weigh-in" weight. So by March 31st I'll be at least 238. (Secretly, I'd like to be in the 220s by my beach trip at the end of April so I'm aiming to lose the first 20 faster.)

To help I'll be making small, weekly goals really focusing on where I am struggling.

- Do my PT exercises every day (more to come about this tomorrow)
- Eat 2,000 calories a day, focusing on vegetables
- Go to the gym at least 3 times a week

That's what I'm starting with. Basic stuff. It should be easy, right?

Great idea to make short term goals. I am also working on losing weight and I'm about the same weight as you are now. My goal is to lose 15 pounds by May. I know that isn't nearly as much as you but I'm just starting out. Hoping for success!
