Wow we must have been typing at the same time :)
I'll just repeat my info here and delete the other post!
Thought I'd go ahead and post this in case something came up to prevent you from doing it, Jennifer!
Starting weight: 198.5
Current weight: 195.1
Goal weight: 150
Short term goal: 175
Strategy: portion control focusing on more whole and fresh foods vs. processed, continue regular exercise but increase intensity.
Doing much better right now with portion control and making better food choices! Also the past two weeks I've been exercising more. Our YMCA has this system where we can log our workouts and it assigns points based on the amount of weight lifted and time spent doing aerobic activity. My husband (who works at the Y part time in the fitness area) set weekly points goals for me to meet, and it has really motivated me to keep it up!
