following: JimDay79674's own diet
performance: gaining 1.8 lb a week
I had a life changing event in May 2010 that made me realize that I needed a change. At that time, I weighed 210 lbs and at 6'2" I was a little heavier than I should have been. I was constantly tired/fatigued, depressed, taking medicine for hypertension, and growing more cynical as the days passed.
I began my change by focusing on my health, with the first goal of losing weight. My second goal was to eliminate hypertension and get off of the medicine. My third goal was to get fit, improve my self-image, and end the feelings of depression.
This is the beginning of my change and I hope to be able to chronicle my progress here on FatSecret.
Update (February 2011):
Hit my target weight. No longer on hypertension medication. BMI in May 2010 was 25.1, current BMI is 23.9. I have tremendously more energy during the day than I used to. I love working out now - absolutely LOVE it!! My favorite activity is boot camps; they're whole body workouts that include a little bit of everything. I typically burn 1,000 calories for every hour of a boot camp.
Maintain between 175-180 lbs. and develop more muscle tone/mass (but more tone than mass as I'm only getting older and I don't want all that mass to turn into fat in the future).
Update (August 2011):
I've sustained my weight in the desired range (175-180 lbs.) for the past 6 months. My body has undergone some significant changes for the better that have helped my self-esteem. I ran the Warrior Dash on August 11, 2011 and placed 16th in my age group (40-44) out of about 750 people - which, I believe, is a result of my improved diet and workout regimen.
I'm a firm believer in accountability. I make the choices of the type and amounts of food I put in my mouth and how often and hard I work out. No one else does. If I want change, I need to make it happen.
