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
7/17/16 - 249.4 lost 6.4 lbs - total 37.6 lbs
7/21/16 - 247.8 lost 1.6 lbs - total 39.2 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.
