My "start" stats:
Height: 5'10 or 5'11
Weight: 230-240 lbs
Short term Goal: 225lbs (the lowest I got to when working out 3 times a week and counting calories)
Overall Goal Weight: 180-190lbs
The highest I ever got to was 260lbs, I got down to 225lbs in about 1 year. Then I got some weird armpit infection thing and stopped working out then excuses later back up to 240lbs and have been maintaining that for about half a year or so. I got back down to 230lbs then had a rough month(many birthdays/events and I suck at controlling my eating apparently). I want to get back down to 225lbs then eventually get down to 190lbs or so.
I don't really know how much I weigh this week. I killed myself at horseback riding Friday (lots of no stirrup work), the next day my thighs, calves, back, abs, etc were super sore! And I ended up with a stomach bug :( I am finally recovering almost over it completely.
My game plan is tracking my calories and being conscious about what I eat, because I find this has always helped me. I walk to school every day which is 10 minutes and on top of that I am going to start up my exercise program from my "New Rules of Lifting for Women" book. And do some jogging/hiking/biking/etc something fun on the weekends. The exercise will be slow for now, I am in the last month and a half of my final year of college. So I will need to nail my eating.
Hope its okay I join!
