I've done it before. I gained it all back. So I must grind through it again and try to learn along the way. Leaving pictures up for motivation. Here we go.

My Goals:
Start: March 25. 257 lbs. Feel awful. Hard to get out of bed. No energy.

Goal 1: 233 lbs - Down 24 pounds. Gets me out of the Obese BMI category.

Goal 3: 215 lbs - 42 pounds down, back to where I was in Summer 2017.

Goal 5: 194 lbs - Gets my BMI below 25 and into the "healthy" range.

My Program:
Calories in: Track everything I eat and keep the calories within my range while making healthy choices.
