Default I reached a 10 lb goal in 2 months

I dropped 10 lbs in about 2 months and now I'm revving it up, going to try to lose another 10 in 2 more months. My clothes are fitting better and I feel better.

Goal of cardio daily except maybe one break day, going up to 60 min a day, split between 1 am session of 30 min and same in pm.

Weights 3 times a week as I've been doing from Sculpting Body book that I like. Need to buy 20 lb dumbells as I'm getting stronger!

I feel that my posture has improved from weights, and my belly is starting to shrink - my biggest problem is my mid section - also the worst place for health to gain weight they say.

It's summer - a good time of year for this - but this winter I'm not going to sit around getting FAT again, I gained over 20 lbs in 9 months.

Fat clothes will be boxed and gone for good.

Yes, another pound down today! In my 160s again... whew. I feel so much better, so much more alive. The biggest part of the blob around my stomach is gone that was so depressing.

Yahooooo.... another pound this am! I can't believe this. I really think the key is weight training AND cardio and cutting calories to 1200 or so - but I'll have to admit I moved this week - wasn't doing formal exercise but worked to death in 100 degree weather lifting boxes, etc. But I think the weight training revs up the metabolim - this happened when I lost weight before, once I built some muscle it was easier, I don't know why, maybe it's just me...

Two more pounds down - I'm in my 160s again, although in my younger/thinner years THAT would be nothing to brag about. Thank goodness I got off my butt and started exercising and eating right, I was headed on a road of serious weight gain this past year. Next mini goal - from the current 168 down to 160 and into the 150s again - I was there 1-1/2 years ago and I can do it again. Bye, bye fat clothes.
