Feb 2014

April 2014
Due to my height to be in normal weight range would be anywhere between 120 lbs to 161 lbs. I think I am medium framed so no way would 120 be a good weight for me plus from past experience I know 130 is the lowest I could ever go without looking really odd. My goal is 140 lbs which would put my bmi at 21.7..... which is right in the middle so that would be great. That's 87 lbs to lose. I wonder if I could do 2 lbs a week for 43.5 weeks..... so that would make it around March 8, 2015.
I am hoping that by putting this out there I will stay motivated. I am not shy about my weight. I am not embarrassed. Maybe it's because I allow myself to have excuses and reasons for gaining it. I do not handle stress well and trust me, I've had more than my share of stress. Genetically I come from overweight people... my DNA is FAT! :) Plus PCOS makes gaining weight a breeze but losing it a nightmare. While I guess I am excusing my past behavior and forgiving myself, I am not going to just sit by any longer and continue to gain. I have 4 members of my family that has had gastric bypass surgery... one died essentially due to complications, and the other 3 might have better lives in some aspects but they've also been a lot sicker so they've had complications also. I want to lose the weight the healthy way.
This time next year I will be healthy!!!!!
