Start Weight:(20 Mar 13) 156.0 lb
Current Weight:(12 Jun 14) 146.4 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: free_bird's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

My parents are both on high blood pressure medication and my dad had a heart attack at the age of 57. My father-in-law has similar health issues. It's time to be serious about what goes into my body (and family's bodies) and get active!

Since 2005 I've been hanging around 145-150 mostly. I'm OK with that, but only OK. Lately I've been creeping beyond 150 and enough is enough.

I know what I need to eat.
I know what good portion control is.
I know exercise is essential.
I know I can get to my goal weight of 135 lbs.
I know I can become a happier, healthier me along with a happier/healthier family in the process.

Starting Weight 1/17/13 155.6 lbs
Goal 1 150 lbs ---> Met! 2/28/13 149.8 lbs
Goal 2 145 lbs ---> Met! 9/26/13 144.8 lbs
Goal 3 140 lbs
Goal 4 135 lbs

Bikini Photos
I'm too scared to do that. Just seeing myself in the full length mirror before I step into the shower is enough to remind me every day.

Metabolism
I am going to be 30 next month. I read somewhere recently that 30 was the key point in a woman's life when her metabloism really slows down. I know everyone is different, but wanted to ask all of you your experiences after passing this milestone. Thanks for any replies. Wink
