Well, yesterday was my two month anniversary of my start of dieting on May 30th and I weighed in at 189.2 pounds! I didn't get a scale until a week or two after I started, so I don't know my exact start weight, but last summer, at my physical exam, the doctor weighed me in at 220, and I KNOW I've gained weight since then, so I've lost AT LEAST 31 pounds in the past two months!
My goal is to get down to 140 by New Year's, however plausible that may be. That would entail losing 2.2 pounds per week, so we'll see. The more I lose, the harder it will be to lose weight, so it it takes until next spring or summer, I'll be happy with that too, as long as I keep losing.
