Hello, my name is Anita, and Iím on a quest for health improvement. I have started this journal to record my progress.
A little about me; I am currently a student, majoring in Psychology (I particularly enjoy health and forensic psychology). I live with James, my partner of 13 years and our two cats in a small city. At a highest weight of 211lbs in 2002-2003, I lost over 20lbs and have maintained this for almost a decade. However, the 20 extra pounds I also lost over this period were harder to keep off.
I have noticed my weight creeping up again, so I really need to take action. I want to lose 58lbs over more than two and a half years, to get to a healthy weight of 130lbs; I have set a goal of 0.4lbs per week (-200 calories every day).
I have already improved my lifestyle through the years by eating more nutritious foods and exercising regularly, although I could benefit from adding more vegetables and drinking more water. My biggest problem is that I eat too much of - on the whole - good food. I need to watch my calorie intake and track my food and exercise on Spark as often as I can.
So, this is day one toward my goal, my goal date is currently Wednesday 26 November 2014.
