I joined SP last Thursday 10-27-2011. I also joined the 100+ pound in 1 year club. I have dieted myself obese over the past 15 years. It started trying to lose 5 pound, and then 10 and now I need to lose 100 pounds.

My highest weight was 252.0 lbs and on 11-25-07, I started (again) to lose weight. This time it lasted 32 weeks and I lost 68 lbs. I weighed 184 lbs. I can't even remember why I stopped trying, I quickly gained most of it back!
My next diet started 1-24-10 and I weighed 243 lbs. This time it lasted for 26 weeks and I lost 65 lbs. I remember being very excited that I was not obese anymore and only overweight. I started having Gall bladder attacks and had surgery 9-1-10. After I recovered, and was off again and gaining weight.

This time my start weight is 236 lbs. At least I kept off 16 lbs. I am now 64 years old and I think this is my last chance. I know I will make it this time!
I'm going to make to at least a BMI that will put me at a normal weight. That is 149 lbs.

My Goals:
Mini Goals for Losing Weight
#1- I need to lose 20lbs. To lose 1 pant size - 216 lbs. @2 months: December, 27 (Ach

#2- Lose 10% body weight. I read this article that said if you are overweight or obese this will significantly improve your health.
10%- 23.6 lbs. = 212 lbs. (Achieved 12/27/11)

#3- I want to weigh under 200 lbs.

#4- Lose 40 lbs. to a size 18 pant. February 27th (4 month)
196.0 lbs.

#5 - Go from Obese to overweight BMI - 179 lbs.

#6- Lose 60 lbs. to a size 16 pant. April 27th (6 months) 176.0 lbs.

#7- Lose 80 lbs. to a size 14 pant. June 27th ( 8 months)
156.0 lbs.

At some point I shouldn't have to lose 20 lbs. to lose 1 size, but I have no idea if and when that will be.

    I am beyond flattered that you read all of my blog posts. For sure you probably know me better than most of my friends. emoticon emoticon emoticon
    I just spent the day with one of my great friends (she's 63). We went to a yarn shop, a quilt shop, and very unique shop with wonderfully creative stuff and we had a healthy lunch at a historic restaurant. I am feeling refreshed and VERY creative. Now to top off that kind of day with such kind comments on my journey just put it over the top. emoticon

    It's never too late as long as you are breathing. You can do this!
