I lost about 30 pounds on my first go-around back in New Zealand, and maintained for three years at around 155 pounds (down from 185). Now I'm 23 and getting back on the wagon. Currently about a week and a half into the rediscovered healthy lifestyle and I'm sitting at about 151 pounds. On my slow but steady way to 130!

---

Original info:

I'm a 20-year old girl, about 5'8, currently weighing 185 pounds. I want to get to 135 within the next four months or so. The hard part for me, not just in weight loss but in anything, is getting started. Once I can see that something is working and the pounds are actually coming off, I think I'll definitely be motivated to continue... the problem is getting myself to follow a program long enough to see those initial changes.

Goals and rewards:

179 (just to get the ball rolling): two new pairs of earrings
175 (haven't passed this point in years): new makeup and nail polish
164 (normal BMI!): two new bras
155: two new shirts
145: $100 clothing shopping spree
135?: new tattoo!

October 21, 2008:

So far I've lost about 14 pounds in five or six weeks. I'm down to 166.8 as of my last weigh-in this morning. I haven't been giving myself any of the rewards I listed, because I don't feel that I really need them to keep myself motivated (and I'm too poor to be spending money on myself all the time!)- I'm going to post a new set of goals, though, just so I have something to look at.

Below 180: DONE
175: DONE
Below 170: DONE
164 (normal BMI according to method 1)
163 (marginally overweight BMI according to method 2)
Below 160

My Goals:
I'd like to drop about 35 pounds and become more athletic.


My Program:
I'm trying to eliminate junk food entirely, including soda, and to spread out my meals more throughout the day. I'm also drinking a lot more water and exercising every day, even if it's just a 30-min walk.



Personal Information:
I'm originally from the States but currently studying in New Zealand. My parents will be coming to visit me in early March and I want to surprise them with a complete transformation.

    Thank you for reading my blog!

    I read your list of goals and rewards - you might need to rearrange them, lol. As the weight goes so do the clothes.

    You're doing great, just keep telling yourself one day at a time, one pound at a time. And try not to falter at the plateaus. I spent 2 weeks trying to get rid of 2 lbs but now the weight is on the move again.

    I was just telling my DH last night that it took 23 years to gain (back) 62 lbs but I am losing it in 1 year! If you look at it that way you will realize how great you are doing!!

    Love you,
    Linda
