I'm typically really sensitive about revealing my weight, but since I'm hoping to put all that fat far behind me, I may as well Hopefully soon it will be just a number.

Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 152 lbs
Goal: 120 lbs

My overall physical condition is more depressing to me than my weight currently, because I have a surprising amount of leg muscle from martial arts and walking/running. Plus, I like having boobs and a butt. But now I'm back in my Winter weight and close to campus so exercise is less of a necessity and I wind up not doing it. Blegh.

Fran your rewards idea is AWESOME! I'm going to do that, too. New shoes for the milestones and maybe a new camera lens when I reach my goal weight!

Diet: Going keto! 60% fat, 35% protein, and 5% carbs, always below 25g of net carbs (hopefully). Been eating a lot of chicken, eggs, and nuts and will be buying lots of bacon, broccoli, and lettuce this weekend. Cutting out grains (which is hard for me, because my mother is an amazing baker and always brings me food) and all my sweets including the Starbucks drinks I love so much. Using myfitnesspal to keep track of my calories, carbs, and all the ratios.

Exercise:
At least 2 hour long walks a day, or 3 40-minute walks. Will hopefully also fit some dancing and running in.

Fran I LOVE the idea of rewards...

I have to think of what my smaller rewards are going to be (5 lbs, 10 lbs, 20 lbs, etc.) I think my BIGGGG reward once I hit my final goal is going to be a $500 clothes shopping spree and a bengal kitten. There's nothing like an awesome bengal kitty to motivate weight loss lol.

On a serious note, I decided to blog this weight loss journey starting now.

ETA: The link will probably stay in my siggy below if anyone cares to follow. I also want to make a banner for the blog so I may need to commission someone's art/graphic design talents if anyone is interested.

Just throwing this out there, but what about doing some kind of "This is what I ate today" thread. Just simple, this is what I ate and it was yummy. Cal/Protein/Fat/Carb if you have it. How you made it. And a picture cause it's cool.

I just think it would be fun, even just for stupid things like I MIXED FRUIT TOGETHER! lol And it would be a topic that could just keep going through the year, unlike how most weigh in threads lose their ambition after a couple weeks.
I'll start one if you guys think it'll be a good idea, otherwise I'll just keep spamming all mine onto my facebook

That's basically what I was thinking. It's not about posting what you ate so much as it's a great way to learn what OTHER people are eating and replicate!

I'm not so huge on putting meals together, I just tend to throw a couple ingredients together and BLAM!

Alrighty, I'll play.

I regained some weight this year that I lost before (durr), which is pretty crappy.

Height: 5'8"
Weight: 225
Goal: 135lbs (ish)


My short term goal is 50lbs. I should be able to lose it within 3-5 months, if I eat properly. My diet is simple. I'm not doing any particular diet except for the obvious where I'm cutting out sugars, bread, pasta, and general junk food. I count calories and control portions. I aim for around 1500 calories a day.

I unfortunately haven't been to the gym in awhile. My life is pretty busy and I'm really tired when I come home, but I know that's not really a problem as it is a symptom of my unhealthy body. I let it become an excuse for a good while. I want to swim in the mornings before work (only 30 min), 3 x a week. Tues-Thurs-Sat. Then I want to do strength training 3x a week as well.
Particularly, this program:

Back/Bis

Deadlifts
A Row
Chins or Pulldows
Bicep Curl

Chest/Tris

Bench
DB or Inc Bench
Chest Dips
Triceps Isolation

Legs/Shoulders

Squat
Glute Ham Raise)
Military Press
Calf Work


When I think about it, it seems like a lot to take on. But quite frankly, I've sat around for a long time and it's about time I put my butt into gear. I'm really pumped.

As for rewards, the little rewards come in feeling better, buying smaller clothes, etc. My end result reward is an 1000 dollar shopping spree, in Las Vegas.

Oooooo, I like the idea of "what I ate today." I think it might be easier if everyone posts their blog and we all follow each other, this way you can take pics with your phone as the day is going and then just upload from your phone.

I don't know about anyone else, but posting pics to chaz from my phone is a nightmare and if I have to transfer pictures to my comp I will end up doing a "high-lights of my week"... which is not necissarily a bad thing, but if you have to be honest with people for each meal it will keep you more on track. :P
