Default My Final Stretch

So, I've had a bit of stall in my progress. After coming a long way, I grew complacent and allowed being home over the summer/not having a gym membership force me to linger stubbornly at 165. While I continued to eat below maintenance (around 1300 max), it seemed that I just was not losing.

So, now that I am back to having a free gym, a scheduled day that keeps me on my feet, and a fridge full of raw almonds, fruit, veggies, and lean protein...it is time to make personal history.

This is where I will keep my daily records to make certain that I DO NOT FALTER and that I remain accountable for my actions (and also to remind me WHY I am doing this in the first place!). 1250 max calories a day, elliptical 4 times a week for 30 minutes, and strength training, plus the occasional class at my gym.

Goals:
-5 lbs by 8/12
-18 lbs by 10/31
-25 lbs by 12/1 (MAINTENANCE! WOO)

(Hopefully this is the right place for this thread...if not, feel free to move me to a more suited spot!)

Hi. We have similar stats. I was just skimming through and wow! I have to give major props to you for doing so well! I'm finding myself motivated by seeing how well you are doing. Forgive me if you didn't wish for any one to respond

No, I really don't mind at all. In fact, I find it really motivating to hear that. This is sort of the second half of my weight loss, since I lost the rest of the weight pretty consistently before stalling out for a month or two. I plan to go at it until I am DONE!
