New mini goal is weighing less on my birthday than I did on my last birthday. Goal: 248 by July 22

back again ... starting 3/17/16
My goal is just to lose 1 pound per week ... so here's to 903 days of the treadmill. Wish me luck!
3/17/16 - 287 heaviest
4/17/16 - 272.2 lost 14.8 lbs - lost 3.5"
5/17/16 - 263.4 lost 8.8 lbs - total 23.6 lbs
6/17/16 - 255.8 lost 7.6 lbs - total 31.2 lbs
6/24/16 - 253.8 lost 2.0 lbs - total 33.2 lbs

back on Spark People as of 4/27/14
7/6/14 - 246.0 lost 8.6 lbs total 22.7
8/3/14 - 241.8 lost 4.2 lbs total 26.9
9/2/14 - 239.0 lost 2.8 lbs total 29.7
10/4/14 - 235.7 lost 3.3 lbs total 33

2016 - (3/17 starting weigh 287)
2014 - lost 32.6 (4/4 starting weight 268.7) gained 43
2009 - lost 73 (1/5 - 234 to 10/14 - 161) gained 107.7
2007 - lost 29.5 (1/2 - 231.5 to 6/10 - 202) gained 32
2002 - lost 20 (12/9/01 - 188 to 3/4/02 - 168) gained 63.5

4/27/14 - In 2009 I lost 73 pounds with the help of the prescribed medication Phentercot (phentermine). I crashed emotionally terribly after coming off the medication and gained back all the weight plus almost 35 more. After that bad experience I didn't want to try again and stopped caring. Now I am back to losing weight and being able to move and feel better.

    emoticon so much for the spark goodie & comment. Cocoa is 8 yrs. old. I love beagles. We won't have him around to much longer. He has CKF. I can't understand what happened. This is a bad disease. He still has a decent quality of life because he is in 3rd stage of kidney failure. It breaks my heart every time I look at him knowing I won't have him around next year. Our other beagle lived till 14 yrs old. I see your using the villes. I am currently in 220ville. Their a great way to lose weight. I use them as a weight loss journal. When you have a lot of weight to lose it's so exciting when your almost ready to move to your next ville. Also it's much easier to lose weight in 10 lb. Increments. You don't feel so discouraged. Please take care. Wishing you the best on your weight loss journey!
