Welcome to my new site!! I decided to give this blogging thing another shot. I've been away from it for too long. I've still been reading blogs, but not posting very much on my old one. Here's to a fresh start!
Speaking of fresh starts, I decided to join Chris' weight loss challenge. Her blog is called A Deliberate Life and is listed on my blogroll. The challenge starts tomorrow and I think it's just what I need to get myself headed in the right direction again.
I'm still trying to get this new blog all set up, so I'll continue adding my favorite blogs that I like to read as I go along. It's just too time consuming to do all at once. The challenge is as basic as it gets. Cap your calories at 1500 a day and exercise 30 mins. a day/6 days a week. For me, the exercise will be walking.
So that's it. I've got to weigh in tomorrow morning and get started. My overall goal for weight loss is to drop below 200 lbs. for the first time in......well...I have no idea how long it's been since I've weighed less than 200 lbs. In fact, I weighed 237 lbs. at 17 years old and a senior in high school, if that tells you anything. At my highest point a few years ago, I weighed 340 lbs. I'm now somewhere around 250-255. When I drop another 50 or so....I'm going to consider my journey a total success, regardless of the fact that I will still be overweight. When I get there...I imagine I'll still want to drop some more. But when I see 199 on that scale....oh my goodness. That will be the day I celebrate!!
Be back tomorrow! :)
