I always got impatient if I wasn't losing big but and gave up after a few weeks so I decided to change strategy and so I started this new diet in Jan with a goal of 1 lb per week. I don't want to change my lifestyle drastically because I'm not a very unhealthy eater. I just need to be more active and try to even out my calories over the week. I enjoy a drink at weekends and catching up with friends and I don't want to give all that up. I needed to lose 44 lbs approx, now it's 39 lbs, so far so good.
Fit day is helping and I try to post every day as well. Every week takes me closer to my goal
Weight at start of Jan 11. - 174lbs
Weight now - 151 lbs
Mini Goal by 09 Jun 2012- 147
Final goal by end of 2012 - around 126-130 lbs
