Thumbs up New here-First mini goal, down 25 lbs!

I have hypothyroidism and had ballooned up to 270 while I was being diagnosed and having my medication dosage moved around. Before I started college I weighed right at 200 lbs, and when I graduated I snuck up to 244. The 270 happened over the course of 2 years while I was in a post-grad program and starting my first job in my chosen career.

I work third shift and was eating a TON of fast food..more than one time a day, and drinking a lot of soda. I also never exercised because I have a bad ankle from an old sports injury and a bad shoulder that has had surgery. My meds finally had my thyroid stablized and I not only stopped gaining weight...but I dropped down to 266, then 260 and stopped.

I said enough is enough, I'm tired of being tired. So I ordered nutrisystem and joined the YMCA a few days into January 2015. I stopped eating fast food altogether. I haven't had a drop of soda in weeks. I eat a ton of veggies and drink a lot of water. I exercise here and there (strength,cardio,swimming).

I'm already down to 245! I wanted to be below 250 for my trip to Disney/Universal at the end of my new mini goal is to be below 240 for that trip.

I'm transitioning off of nutrisystem to whole foods eating soon, so I hope I can continue to stay on track. Next mini-goal 50 lbs lost (220), then its onwards to less than 200.

That sounds really great! I keep hearing about mini goals and really like the idea of losing weight this way. I am going to definitely try using mini goals to lose weight with. I think my first mini goal will be to lose 10 pounds! I know I can do it!
