So, I was only down 5.5 pounds from my beginning weight of 248.5 on January 1, 2011, which is when I started trying to tackle my obesity. It's so sad because last September I was down to 215 pounds - I managed to lose 33.5 pounds in 9 months, which isn't anything spectacular, but it was sure better than nothing! Unfortunately, since September I have gained almost all the weight back, but I'm committed to getting myself back on track. On Monday I set a goal of losing 2 pounds a week for the rest of the year, and today I weighed-in at:
I've lost 3 pounds since Tuesday, so I met my goal this week. I'm taking it one day at a time, and trying to stay focused on what I need to do. Yes, I have a long way to go, but it's been worse. Back in 2006 I weighed over 280 pounds, and looked like this (yikes):

So, I'll take the 240 pounds I'm at, right now, and tackle losing another 40 pounds, and then another, and then another - if I did it once, I can do it again.
I'm going to start my picture page over since I'm back in the 240's where I was when I started this blog. I'll post a current picture today, and then I'll do another one on June 30th - hopefully, there will be progress!
Have a great weekend.
