I’m a 53 yr old 5ft 7 ½ 221lb female who has slowly been putting on weight for years. I’ve had bouts of intermittent weight loss with WW, Dukan diet, Easyslim and this time I’m wanting to make a serious life changes in my eating habits, and exercise in preparation for the coming years.
I started the 800 calorie way of eating last Monday, November 5th. I weighed in at 221lb’s and this morning I weighed in at 216. To me, I think a lot of what I have lost is fluid, but I have also incorporated some exercise in there too. I’d like to get down to 160 lbs, so that is a 61 pound weight loss goal and ideally I would like to reach that by June of 2019. I’m using MyFitnessPal and FitBit to track.
I just purchased a gym membership and hope to do 2 structured aqua classes per week, with 2 other visits for walking, biking, stretching and weight machines. Ideally I’d like to do more, but I have an incredibly busy job, a 7 yr old and an art practice which keeps me busy. If anyone wants to buddy up that started on Monday, I’d be open to check in once and a while. Thanks!
