WSR: Weight 239.2 - Weight Left To Lose 69.2


Height: 5'7"
Age: 40

Starting Weight: 370 lbs
Goal Weight: 170 lbs

Current Weight: 239.2 lbs
Pounds Lost: 130.8 lbs
Pounds Left To Lose: 69.2 lbs

Percent Of Weight Lost: 35.35%
Percent Of Way To Goal: 65.40%

Starting BMI: 57.9
Current BMI: 37.5
BMI Lost: 20.4

I finally crossed over into the 230 range as of last night. It is an awfully good feeling to know that I am inching closer and closer to onederland. I had the realization that I will hit that some time THIS year instead of next year like I had previously thought. Can I say how much that just thoroughly blows my mind?

I cannot say enough how much I am just sold out to regular exercise - interval training especially. I have seen a dramatic difference each week since I have focused on trying to walk 5 miles per day - at high and moderate speeds. Forget that foolish TIME article nonsense - exercise (with proper diet) will help you lose weight. I did really well last week walking 5 out of 7 days and doing 5 miles on 3 out of those 5 days.

AUGUST MINI GOAL:

Starting Weight: 248.8 lbs
Goal Weight: 225.0 lbs

Current Weight: 239.2 lbs
Pounds Lost: 9.6 lbs
Pounds Left To Lose: 14.2 lbs

Percent Of Way To Goal: 40.37%

When I set this goal I thought maybe I might be stretching it a bit in terms of what was realistic. What I am finding is that I am doing pretty darned well in meeting it. I am looking to get at or near 225 by August 31st - near being good enough. However, the raging Virgo in me wants to hit it dead on.

Onward and downward!

Hey there, I'm Kimberly from over at Fat Girl Interrupted. Just wanted to say thanks for the comment.

You're doing great too - almost 2/3 of the way to your goal - that's fantastic!

I'm glad I could be an inspiration, it seems like the biggest problem we face when trying to lose weight is finding and then KEEPING the right motivation. Best of luck!
