Today is the day that I have decided I will start my weight loss journey and I wanted you to come along with me! I have about 90 pounds to lose to get to a "normal" BMI, but I would be happy losing 70. My first goal is to lose 10% of my weight.
I figure goals are easier to attain if you set them week by week, so that is what I am going to do. My week one goals are:
- Limit Soda Intake: I currently drink more than 24 oz of pop a day, my favorites being Dr Pepper and Mtn Dew. My goal is to limit my intake to 20 oz a day or less.
- Count Calories: This is quite difficult for me as I like to eat without thinking about what I am doing to my body. I want to limit my calories to around 1500 a day and to count every last tasty calorie.
