My First Weight Loss Post
I've gained and lost a lot of weight in my life. I started gaining significant amounts when I was around eight or nine. I have been on many diets- Nutrisystem, South Beach, Weight Watchers, Slim Fast, veganism (although that wasn't just for weight loss. I had also recently seen Food Inc and read Fast Food Nation, both of which I recommend). I've been working out my whole life. I know how to lose weight...
And I know how to gain weight. I'm on a journey to lose it again, this time by counting calories, journaling, and exercising one hour a day, at least five days a week. I'm hoping this time it sticks.
Wish me luck!
Starting Weight: 167 lbs*
Goal Weight: Approx. 130 lbs.
*This is my third highest starting weight. My highest was 198 lbs on my 5'0" frame.
**I've been at it with my new program and I've lost about 4 lbs, which is typical for the first week on a diet. I'm sure I'll be blogging away when I hit 150- my plateau weight.
