performance: losing 0.6 lb a week

I have always been overweight and while I have realized that size has nothing to do with beauty, I am not totally satisfied with myself. I don't mind being big but I really need to be healthy. (Oh... and a flat stomach <- a NECESSITY)

Recently I was diagnosed with two illnesses (nothing major) which could lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart attacks etc. (things which could be worsened by poor diets).

I believe these are wake up calls... and I am ready to wake up.

I decided that I want to lose weight in stages rather than setting one major weight loss. My first goal is 200lbs by October 25th. When I reach my 200lbs, I'm gonna party like there's no tomorrow... lol. THEN, 185lbs by December 31st.

My ultimate goal is 160lbs, but I think it is sometimes daunting when it seems what you are working towards is out of reach. "You gotta walk before you can run."

Does just walking 30min a day do it?
i think it will depend on your height and weight, as well as how fast you are walking. you can go to the fitness section and see how many calories you would burn doing those activities.

good luck

Brilliant Idea
So I always join these diet sites and use them for a couple days before forgetting about the site and quitting my diet.

This time around, it is more than just me going on a diet... I am really trying to change my lifestyle plus I really dig this site Cool (lol... who still says dig... lol i dug that...) Anyway, back to my point...

This time I had the brilliant idea to make my home page. How can I forget something that is right there in my face?? Well, I'm still at the beginning so I dont know if it will work but I just thought I'd share my BRILLIANT IDEA Bad Grin .

Have a great day everyone. Smile
