From as far back as I can remember I have been overweight and have attempted one diet after another to try to become that skinny girl I always dreamed of being. I'm starting this blog in hopes of using this as my motivational tool to finally change my lifestyle and get healthy. Feel free to cheer me on, give me advice or criticize me if need be. I'm way tougher on myself than anyone else can be on me.
The end of this year is coming up fast, with only 48 days left until the New Year I'm challenging myself to lose even more weight. I'm currently participated in the Hot 100 Challenge hosted by Steve at http://logmyloss.com/ . One of my goals in this challenge is to lose 20 lbs between September 23, 2010 and January 1, 2011, at the present time I have lost 16.4 lbs of this goal. My weigh in was yesterday and I weighed 219 lbs which means I'm only 19.1 lbs away from being in onederland. I'm setting a new personal goal to be under 200 lbs by New Years. I know this isn't going to be an easy task but who said everything had to be easy. That gives me almost 7 weeks to accomplish this goal which means I have to lose about 2.8 to 2.9 lbs a week. What a wonderful way to start off the New Year.
