I have fought with weight issues all of my life - this time I am determined to win!

After becoming ill in 2011 as a result of being overweight, I made losing weight a priority and lost just over 50lbs. Over the last few months I have found myself losing motivation and gaining weight back. I am determined not to let this happen - so here I am finding the help and motivation that I need and hoping to give back the same to others.

I still have quite a long way to go but know that I can do it. I know that planning, determination and focus will help me to get there.

I am really looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you!!

My Goals:
Long term goals:

1) To be under 140lbs - this would put me in the healthy BMI category (for the first time that I can remember)

2) To be more confident, healthy and comfortable in my own body

Medium term goals:

1) Be under 200lbs by Christmas - I want to show my family and friends that I haven't given up on myself

2) Mexico in April - I want to be under 180lbs and be able to be more comfortable in a bathing suit (or better yet actually wear a bathing suit!)

3) I want to run a 5k - there is one coming up at the end of Sept/beg of Oct but I have not registered - trying to find the nerve as I have not even started to train...

Short term goals:

I refer to these as my program - my day to day activities.

My Program:
1) Eat within my calorie range 6/7 days of the week - on the 7th day, do NOT exceed 2000 calories

2) Fit in at least 3x at the gym per week - schedule it into the calendar each week - it is a non-negotiable appointment

3) Plan 30 mins of "Fun' exercise 3x per week (ie walking at work, c25k, etc) - schedule it into my calendar as an appointment

4) 1 day of rest from exercise per week

5) Schedule my bed time and stick to it!

6) Plan my meals in advance, pack lunches and snacks and stick to it!
