performance: losing 0.7 lb a week
I started my journey in January 2009 at 194.8 pounds. I had a successful '09 losing 35.8 pounds. But by September '09 I let my surroundings take back over and the weight crep back up. I yo-yo'd for a long while. I came back first of the year to FatSecret, only to not really get back into it again. November 2010 I am back, I am taking back control of my life, starting the workouts again, eating healthy.
My graph is misleading because when I started my "new diet" in July of just calorie counting it reset my starting weight to 179. I want to be able to see that original 194.8 so it looks misleading like I have lost 16 pounds since July, but in reality I have lost 16 pounds since January 2009 becuase of gaining back weight I had previously lost.
I am wife and mother of two wonderful boys, ages 8 and 3. My husband and I have a lovely home on 121 acres, plenty of room to roam and enjoy! I want to get my body in shape so that I can run and play with them with out having to catch my breath!!
I am 5'3" so my healthy weight range according to that stupid BMI that all health care and life insurance companies look at (and rate you on), is between 109 - 137. I am shooting for somewhere mid range. I will adjust accordingly. I do not want to look so thin people think I am sick. I like have some meat on my bone, I just don't need as much as I have currently :)
