I finally updated my ticker and stats and after a few weeks of renewed lurking I'm finally ready to post again.
In a nutshell: I've done this before (who hasn't...) and sometime in 2005 I weighed 150 and I thought I was SMOKIN' hot and I loved it. A few problems and a few restarts later here I am again. I got back up to 230 and I've lost 7 pounds since I got back on track. I'd still like to see 150, although it seems so far away. I kept my clothes from that time of my life and they just seem to look impossibly small now.
But anyway, I'm a calorie counter with a touch of Weight Watchers thrown in. I do a calorie cycle where I try to stay around 1200-1400 during the week and under 2000 on the weekends. I'm getting back on the workout wagon. I see a personal trainer for 30 minutes twice a week and I try to get about 45 minutes to an hour of cardio three to four times a week.
Things have gone REALLY well for the last two weeks and there are times, like tonight, when I feel SO good and SO positive about everything that I need to remember this feeling so that I can hold on to it when things don't feel so great.
Anyway, nothing earth shattering to say -- I just wanted to say hi and that I'll see everyone around the forums!
