A Healthier Me In The Next 365 Days

Been here many times before. Hopefully this time I'll stick it out.
I've struggled for the last 9 years with my weight , and all I've done is gotten bigger and bigger. This has to stop !!!!
I know I need to think more along the line of lifestyle changes, but when push comes to shove, the bottom line is to get the poundage off and regain my energy. So that's what I'll be working on.

I had originally set out to make a 2 year goal but for now I'm going to just work on the next 12 months goals and then decide later if I want to go further. I'm past the point where I need to get below 150-160 lbs. At this point in time I just want out of the 200's, so that's my goal for the next year.

UPDATED SEPT. 13-2014

Due to Bob's heart issues, he was put on a very strict 1200 calorie, 2000 gram sodium food plan. I'm also going to do the same food plan so we work as a team. Both of us are working to lose 60 lbs within the next year.

Updated Nov. 3-2014

Since my last update Bob has lost 23 lbs and I'm down 11 lbs. I had hoped to be down more than I am but in October the weight loss stalled for me pretty much. Bob lost 20 lbs in Sept. and 3 lbs in October. I lost 10.8 lbs in Sept. and only 0.2 lbs in October. I mainly yo-yo'd all month. I'm really going to work on losing 5 lbs in November. That's Bob's goal as well. We'll see how we do.

Updated Nov. 30-2014

Well, for November I ended up with a total of 6.2 lbs. lost for the month. I actually lost more due to a severe case of flu that lasted 9 days, but I regained most of that weight back once I started eating again. But a 6.2 lb. loss isn't bad at all so I'm a happy camper over that.
Bob didn't do well at all in November. He lost a total of 1 lb. I honestly think he's slacking off because he feels it's too much work to eat right. He's been eating a lot more junk than he had been doing and he's feeling the effects of it, but he shrugs it off. He says he'll get back on track fully after the first of the year. But he doesn't realize if he doesn't stay on top of things, he'll undo a lot of good he's done since mid Sept. I try telling him that, but he just wants to argue. I refuse to be the food police to him. Somewhere along the line he has to make his own decisions when it comes to his own health. I can only do so much.
My goal for December is to drop another 5 lbs or more.

January 1-2015 UPDATE

Well, over the last 3 months I managed to lose 20 lbs and keep it off so I'm starting 2015 on a smaller size than I've been in 5 years. Still much too heavy but I'm making progress and that's what counts.
Over the last 3 months Bob lost a total of 27 lbs. He had hoped to lose more in that length of time but with the two holidays we had in that time frame, I think he did great.
We both want to continue to work towards losing 5 lbs a month. Sept. 13th will be the year end for this team effort to lose 60 lbs each in a years time. We'll see how close we get to that goal. Neither of us plan to quit when we reach that time frame. We both have more weight we need to lose. Bob's ultimate goal is 250 lbs. My goal is 165 lbs. So we both have a ways to go. But if we continue to work together I feel certain we'll both reach our goals. Maybe not in 2015 but I'm certain by the end of this year, we'll be a lot closer to our ultimate goals than we are right now.
