I want to get to 175 by March! Keep me motivated guys!!! These stories are wonderful! I have changed my diet--a total 360 degree change.
Now my diet consists of vegetables, fruits, cereal, fish, and chicken.
We are looking at 1500 per day. I lift weights 4 times a week, for an hour, and 30 minutes running at 5.5 mph on the treadmill.
I am ready to make a change for good!! I have never felt so good. I started January 4.
Way to go, erick! I'm happy that you've taken the first step. Last year at 41 years old, I weighed 219 (5'10"). Due in large part to tracking my food on FitDay, I lost 40 pounds in about six months. Then, around Thanksgiving, I stopped keeping track of my food intake during the holidays. That turned into two months of cheat meals and 16 pounds gained back. Keeping track of what you eat not only allows you to properly record calories, fat, etc., but, perhaps more imporantly, it makes you think about everything you put in your mouth. Be obsessive if you need to be, but keep track of everything. Good Luck!!!
