Happy New Year, Everyone

Like Jenn, I'm not a big resolution person, but I do think it's a great time for a restart. If nothing else, my New Year resolution for weight loss will at least give me a jump start.

On December 18 I told my doc I would not binge eat, but would eat what I wanted during the holidays and then restart my weight loss diet New Year's Day. So, here I am.

I got burned out on exercise and Doc told me that any exercise is better than none, so at her suggestion, I am setting my beginning goal for exercise at three days a week instead of five, so anything extra I do will be a bonus.

I just finished a mile of aerobic walking. Will do another mile later today.

I don't know what I weigh. 230 something. I weighed 231 on Dec. 18. My scale is broken and it told me this morning I weigh 291-- and I'm sure I didn't gain 60 lbs. in two weeks. As soon as I finish this post, I'm off to the store to get a new one.

My goals starting today are:
Calories: 1200-1600 per day
Sat fat average: maximum 12% of total calories
Dietary cholesterol average: maximum of 250mg per day
Fiber average: minimum 25g per day
Protein average: minimum 120g per day
Net Carbs average (total carbs less fiber): maximum 25g per day
Exercise: 3 days per week for first three months. Any extra is a bonus
Water 64 oz. per day.
