Three years. Three years of yo-yoing. After a decade of the weight creeping up and up and up. Five pounds here, ten pounds there. Now back, ready, and wanting to beat the DISEASE of obesity. One step at a time.

I'm going to approach losing 100 lbs in 5 20lb 'chunks' (how fitting!). I want to lose 20lbs over the summer, and then would like to lose more over the next two years, slowly. steadily, and happily.

New targets (SW 250lbs).

August 31st, 2012: 230 lbs.
November 30th, 2012: 210 lbs.
March 31st, 2013: 190 lbs.
August 31st, 2013: 170lbs.
February 28th, 2014: 150lbs.

I need support. I need Sparkpeople. I need to invest time and effort and blood and sweat and tears. The time is now.

    Great plan Claire, good luck with your first 20lbs - emoticon

    Bet you are looking forward to the summer vacation from school. Do you have a holiday booked this summer? At least you can avoid staff room treats - they have tempted me too much lately!

    You know that saying that everyone likes to throw around, about tortoises and slow and steady getting first place or...whatever it is? It's a saying for a reason. I know it can be a pain in the butt... I've been on SP for four years! ..But the slow way is the best way anyhow. Your body adjusts more easily to slow changes over time, after all.

    Keep at it and you can do it. You're welcome to Sparkmail me or post on my wall at any time if you need support.

    Let's DO this!
