Ok Tug, I got ya beat.
Present weight 185
Eventual goal weight 135
Short term goal (June 28) 170
I too will do and keep track of measurments, when I excercise I tend to carry A LOT of muscle. The best shape and thinnest I've ever been I weighed 160 (at 5' that's pretty high-but I had thighs of steel :LOL)
Part of my problem is that I was on prednisone for 2 yrs. Pred causes weight gain in odd places, example, my upper back, it also causes you to carry extra weight around the waist--always before, I had a big ass and hips, but a narrow waist--right now I don't look like I have an ass :LOL
Excercise goal: We borrowed my aunts treadmill and it is presently sitting in my living room--someone call Martha, I need decorating advice to combine living room and gym! I know for a fact that the only way I'll use it is if I can watch TV while walking-so for the time being my goal is 20-10 minutes a day. I'd love to get my but to the gym as I really enjoy weight training, but I'd never be able to leave Molly in daycare (even though it's right there) and I'm having trouble motivating myself to get out of the house unless it's really necessary.
Eating Goal: I will very likely join Weight Watchers again, the points system makes it easy for me to follow, I like knowing I can have cheesecake--but I gotta save enough points to do it--so I'll spend a day eating nothing but fruit and veggies for the reward if I really want it. In my area they meet Wed nights.
How do you guys choose to reward yourself to keep your motivation up? I'm figuring every 5 lbs I get to do something nice for myself; go for a massage, get my hair cut, buy something new to wear, go to a movie, etc.
AmBam, I think I'd like to keep the thread here for as long as they let us, but I'm guessing that as soon as there is a need for a Feb 2006 board, we'll be booted out and this thread will be moved to the weight managment board. But I'm more comfortable having it just be us for now.
Oh, and now that you all know my weight, I'm afraid I'll have to kill you. :LOL
