I Want To Be Fit To Be Proud

I lost a lot of weight about 5 years ago. I did it on my own then and learned a lot. I find this structure has helped me better understand what I am doing. My inital goal was 50 more pounds by March 1 of 2013. I reached that goal on Nov 13, 2012. My new goal is 90lbs by March 1, 2013. That is a bit aggressive, but I need a tough goal. I have a wild dream to hit the 100lb goal, but I want to be realistic and let my body tell me if I should lose the extra 10 after I hit 90.

My Goals:
I want to be healthy and active. I know to do that I need to lose weight and work out regularly.

I set my initial goal at 225. A 60 pound loss. That is about where I got last time after a 75 pound loss. (Reached on 11/13).

What is scary about that is that according to the BMI calculator I will still be at the high end of the overweight category.

This time I plan to fight past that and then maintain. My new goal is 195. That would still make me over weight according to the BMI, but I want to see if my body will take more of a loss at that poiint.

For the Fall 5% Challenge:
Exercise: I will walk each day with my dogs at least 10 minutes. I will do strength training 3-4 times a week. Primarily using Kettlebells. I will also bike 2-3 times a week. I hit the 5% weight loss in 5 weeks and I am going to try to hist 10% before the 8 weeks is up.

Diet: I will continue to simply eat healthy and say within the recommended guidelings for

My Program:
I enjoy good food. I have a 22 year old son who lives with who is a young chef. We talk food all of the time. He is working 2 jobs and rarely cooks. I am going to cook healthily and yet make flavorful food that he will enjoy. Extreme programs do not work for me. I cannot give up wheat or carbs. I cannot fast.

I am working on a list of low calorie favorites that I can go to easily that we both enjoy. I am working hard on portion control. I want to eat 4 moderate meals a day and drink a lot of water.

I am attending 4 kettlebells classes a week. On most days I ride my bike 12 miles round trip for the class. I also referee ice hockey 6-12 times a week. On top of that I walk my dogs daily 20-40 minutes at a fairly fast pace.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Kalamazoo Michigan. After graduate school I took my first job in Chicago and moved to the ares in 1979. I have been a systems analyst/developer for my entire career. My two passions are books and ice hockey. I currently do not play, officiate regularly. I am hoping that my conditioning will allow me to return to the ice as a player.

Thank you for commenting on my blog entry my daughter's gluten-free diet! You're right - it is definitely a LEARNING experience (challenging, but worth it - hopefully).

Hello! Thank you for your comment on my blog. I didn't want to go in without a plan this year, because I had such a strong start last year and I completely folded after my first tour. Not this time!!!

That's actually strange, as I was exactly 4 lbs away from 100 lbs down when I gained my bit of weight as well.

When I reach 220 lbs I'll officially be 100 lbs down. I was 224 in February but ended up gaining some weight, and also got a new scale that read a little higher by a couple of lbs, so I think that's a reason as well.

I'm currently 236 lbs, and have dropped 2 lbs in the past 2 days. So 16 away from 100 down now, and honestly can't wait.

My goal is to lose 175 lbs total which will take me to 145 lbs, which is the highest someone of my height and frame should be. My doctor agreed that's a good goal weight for me. I would possibly like to be in the 130s after reaching my goal, and tone up some. But one step at a time.

Thanks for the comment, and I hope you're doing great this evening :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. The various methods of fasting is counter-intuitive. It's just different ways of cleansing. It's not required. But once you find something that works, there is no going back. Good luck and have a great day.
