My First Weight Loss Post!

Well, I started dieting and exercising a few days before the new year! I cut out my cokes. I've been watching my calorie intake and exercising my butt off! Not to mention drinking a crap load of water! I'm 5"4' and started out weighing 170!! 170 is only 5 pounds less than the heaviest I've ever been, which was when I gave birth to my oldest son! My goal is to lose 30-40 pounds. I weighed 135 in high school, so there's no need to try to set a goal much lower than that.

Tommorow actually will be the one week mark, but I don't have scales of my own, so I had to weigh today at Shelley's house. So, here's my progress as of now! And I must say, that I'm quite pleased!

Starting weight=170
Weight as of today= 158

12 pounds!!!! I'm so excited!! I know I probably won't keep losing that much weight every week, but I'm happy with the start! So, stay tuned each week on my weight loss venture! With my birthday being tommorow, I am going to splurge! Hopefully it won't affect me too much!

You are doing a FANTASTIC job on losing weight. Hell, I would be SOOOOO happy if I weighed 170. I'm barely 5'4 and I was happy at that weight. What's crazy is in high school I also weighed 135... I can't believe I was EVER that size. Every single year I get bigger and bigger and it's so damn depressing. Your doing great.. Sprinkle some of that mojo my way.

Visiting from SITS. Good luck on your goals. Be careful of rapid weight loss, as it can be a sign of muscle loss, which I am sure you know. :) Wishing you all the best and I look forward to reading about your journey. :)

Are you on a specific diet? I'm going to start on Monday. But I'm not sure what kind of diet to try. I've though a/b weight watchers or something. I know I'm definitely going to start working out at Curves again. I've slacked big time!
