Weight History

Start Weight

Lost so far: 13.0 lb

Current Weight
145.0 lb
Performance: Steady

Goal Weight
138.0 lb
Still to go: 7.0 lb
Here are my goals, which can be tweaked as time goes by:

Feb 19th - Travel 3 miles on the treadmill within 35 minutes.
Feb 29th - Have my lower abs become perceptible.
Feb 29th - Have 50 of a total 58 Clean Eats during February.
Feb 29th - Resistance trained 20 times this month.
Feb 29th - Done cardio 16 times this month.

March 08th - Run the Gate River Marathon the entire way(5K, 3.1 miles)
March 16th - Have a bodyfat level that's less than 10%.
March 19th - Start the 52 Day Challenge to practice maintaining.

What I want with my weight:
I really don't want to lose any more weight. 142.7 is low enough for me - my only real judge is the mirror. Getting to a pride-inducing 8% bodyfat would be more than enough. My only reason for recording it now is to analyze what I'm eating, and how it's affecting me.

Need to find others with over 100 pounds to lose...
A couple of months ago, I read this story, and my thinking about fat loss hasn't really been the same since. It's about a guy who lost 186lbs in a year, and how he did it. It's the one article that's motivated me, more than anything else, to keep at it.

I hope you guys find it as useful as I did.

More nutritional info
Is there a way for me to see exactly how much fiber, sugar, vitamins, etc. that I'm having through the day?

Cardio then Weight Lifting vs Weightlifting then Cardio
Check out the following website - read the articles. They're written by men, but work for both sexes. As to the answer to your question - you burn more calories from a heavy weight lifting workout than from a heavy cardio session, and a good weight lifting workout (lift heavy weights - it won't make you bulky unless you eat to become big) will increase your metabolism through the day. That's why it's typically better to do your lifting first, when you have more energy. Save your cardio for last. Good luck!
