performance: losing 1.1 lb a week

I'm one of those people who would much rather be reading a book, writing a novel, or playing a video game than exercising. However, having just hit 30 and not seeing a weight below 200 since I was in college, I know it's time to take my health seriously if I want to keep it as I continue aging. My mother (a type 1 diabetic) already has a lot of mobility and memory issues. Weight issues run rampant in my family as well.

Right now I am not on a specific diet. Mostly I am trying to eat more whole foods and keep a better balance of fruits, vegetables, meats, and grains, upping significantly the portion of fruits and vegetables I eat daily compared to my past habits. I am also steering clear of fast food and sodas. While my diet leaves room for the occasional treat, I track everything I eat to keep a better idea of how many calories I'm consuming. At 221.6 pounds right now, I've been trying to limit my intake to 1600 calories a day to kickstart some poundage loss. So far so good, considering I was 239 pounds at the beginning of this year.

I'm in this for health, not looks. If I look hot at the end of it, well, that's great, but it doesn't really matter to me. My main goal is to feel better and stay healthy longer.

I don't really have any friends on this site, but would be cool with a couple of buddies with similar interests. :)

Free pizza at work, but I stayed beneath my calorie limit with the dinner I'm planning on having tonight. It helps so much to plan what I'm supposed to ...

Down over three pounds this week! I've been counting calories as accurately as possible, trying to eat a more balanced diet, and exercising more.
