following: millerm40's own diet
performance: losing 7.0 lb a week

53 years old former College/HS athlete fighting my way back to a healthy body...I’ve been on FatSecret for several years now... been an on/off "dieter" with limited success. I am NOW VERY motivated to get to my goal of 210. I began this latest effort after the 2012 Christmas Holiday when my scale tipped 236# (BMI 34.8).

Since that time, i have worked out at the gym several times a week. I've MADE time to exercise... and have exercised portion control. I FEEL MUCH HEALTHIER; my A1C is going in the RIGHT direction,
And am now a few weeks away from a goal that i once thought was IMPOSSIBLE...

UPDATE 7/19/13: I have FINALLY reached my goal of 210#. I am now looking at getting to 200#s. I don't believe i've been at that weight for at least 15 years! Maybe by Christmas I can update my BIO again... :)

UPDATE 2/13/14: I reached my 2nd goal weight of 200#'s this morning (BMI 29.5). I did so 2 weeks before my intended birthday target date! I've set me next goal at 195#s. I will target getting there by Memorial Day!

UPDATE 3/30/14: I reached my 3rd goal weight of 195#s (BMI 28.8). My next goal weight for maintenance will be 187#.

Update 7/1/14: New low for me, 190.0# BMI 28.1

Update: 7/13/14: I reached my final maintenance weight goal of 187.0 (BMI 28.0) today. I've now lost 50#s since my all time high (January 2013).

Girl Scout Cookies
Surprised A box and a half? Kirsten, that DOUBLED your weight! lol Seriously, they are my Achilles heel too. I LOVE THEM, but have been good so far. I've bought 6 boxes, but can count on 1 hand how many cookies I've had in the past week! Smile Good luck avoiding the EXCESS of the "devil dressed in green", but it's ok to ENJOY a few! Smile

Another NSV for me... I'm on my last belt loop hole... on the GOOD side! Smile Looks like I'll need a new belt soon!

My BMI has FINALLY dropped below the Obese range... I'm now 29.6 which is "only overweight" Wink Not bad since I started at 34.8 in the Obese range!
