I am a 48 year old divorced mom to three children living in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada

My goal: to never have to rely on my frumpy sweaters to "hide" my stomach and to finally feel wonderful about the way I look.

Here's to a great 2016/17 and able to choose whatever I want to wear from my closet again!

Steps along the way:
The first (and easiest) 10 lbs by October 15, 2016
meet the goal of 140 lbs by Christmas.
Next goal of 135 lbs in time for my January cruise
Reach my target of 125 for my Birthday on March 9,2017.

Morning weight vs. daytime weight
Is morning weight realistic? How do you measure gains?

What's working??
I have been losing about a pound per week for the past 3 weeks.

What are your Percentages (on average?) My percentages are @ about 65% fat, 25-30% protien, and the remainder in carbs.

I put my RDI in the 1400 range. Some days I am not hungry and it is lower, other days I go above to about 1600 - but that may be once every 2 weeks.

Are you exercising? No formal exercise other than walking around the office like a chicken with my head cut off.
