I'm 46 and live in Memphis, TN. Something spectacular happened to my mindset in February 2016 and I committed myself to getting serious about being healthy! I'm not 'dieting', I'm changing my lifestyle and creating a whole new me! I'm taking a pragmatic approach and facing it one day, one meal, one bite at a time! I've promised myself to never be in denial or hide from my weight again so I post it for all to see. It keeps me accountable and facing reality. Pre-First-Official weigh-in: 444lbs. Lost ~10lbs. Day 1: February 29, 2016. 434lbs April 1: 415.4lbs (19.6lbs) -- 95.7% of Day 1 May 1: 402lbs (13.4lbs) -- 92.6% of Day 1 June 1: 394.6lbs (7.4lbs) -- 90.9% of Day 1 July 1: 374.1lbs (20.5lbs) -- 86.2% of Day 1 Aug 1: 368.7lbs (5.4lbs) -- 84.9% of Day 1 Sept 1: 356.8 (11.9lbs) -- 82.2% of Day 1 Oct 1: 350.8 (6.0 lbs) -- 79% of Day 1 Nov 1: 338.4 (12.4lbs) -- 77.9% of Day 1 Dec 1: 328.4 (10.0 lbs) -- 75.7% of Day 1 2017 Jan 1: 320.9 (7.5 lbs) -- 73.9% of Day 1 Feb 1: 312.5 (8.4lbs) Mar 1: 309.5 (3lbs) Apr 1: 301.3 (8.2lbs) Hit my first 100lbs lost goal on 10/6/2016! My Goals: - 5k Color Run, August 2016 (DONE!! Made it 3.5k!) - Walk Half Marathon, 2017 - Get to 199lbs, July 2017 (46.1% of Day 1) Blog posts on Blogger: http://justsimplyq.blogspot.com Add me on FitBit! https://www.fitbit.com/user/4CXHLG FitBit email: justsimplyq@gmail.com Inspiration: I know what it feels like to give up. Now, I want to know what it feels like not to.
