performance: gaining 2.2 lb a week
I've let my weight sneak up on me over the last four or five years since I stopped playing organized sports. I used to weigh around 210 lbs., which is twig thin for someone my height, now starting at 260 lbs., I'd like to get back down to the 220's range. I'm hoping that by tracking my diet and exercise daily, I'll keep motivated to reach my goals. In the long term I'd eventually like to come back the other way a little bit through strength training.
UPDATE: My goal weight was reached initially in 2011, which I maintained fairly consistently for over a couple of years at around 220-225lbs. Early though this year I did a good amount of strength training, but was sloppy with my diet, and I'm looking to get my weight back down to the 225lb range, which would put me in great shape, considering I have added some muscle mass. This time around it's a matter of finding the drive to devote more physical activity time rather than just dieting, as I have goals that include improving my performance in some distance runs. I ran my first half marathon last year, and am hoping to continue to improve my time, while over all continuing my fitness goals.
I'm big into hiking (or about any outdoor activity for that matter), cooking, and anything involving music (just listening to, or concerts).
