Hi Guys. I'll give you a bit of background into my weight loss over the past few years. Please feel free to post with your birthday challenge.
I was always an overweight child. In my teens my weight ballooned up to 220 and at my heaviest I was 245. In 2014 I decided to do a weight loss plan that my friend was on. In the first week I lost about 13lbs and I was ecstatic. In all I'd lost 36 lbs by the end of the program. I felt great. I looked great but I was not able to maintain the low calorie low carb weight loss and slowly all of the weight crept back on.
Fast forward to now:
Now I'm following my own meal plan and I've been doing it with MFP. I track nutrition and calories so that I can still have the things I love while losing.
Since January 11th I've lost about 12 lbs and yesterday I started back exercising. This week is all cardio. I'm aiming for 4 days this week.
I feel great being back in control of what I eat and how I exercise.
My Birthday Challenge:
My birthday is on March 15th
That's 34 days from now.
I'll be turning 26.
By that date I want to have:
- Dropped below 200lbs
- Hit 195lbs.
My first wedding anniversary is May 1st and I really am aiming for 180 lbs
by that date.
I'm feeling super charged up today!
I look forward to seeing who else has a birthday challenge their working towards.
