I had my hardest workout yet yesterday. I walked, jogged, and even ran four miles. I definitely felt it!

I lost 7.2 pounds this week for a total of 13.2!

I only got in 6.2 miles this week because my shoes didn't fit right, causing blisters and achy feet, and now today I'm going to try out pair #3.

I'm a bit obsessing over the calories but I am eating enough food. I even ate a chocolate bar on Friday, a couple slices of pizza on Monday, a couple cocktails and tonight I'm having my cheat day for my Valentine's dinner. I'm definitely getting it down to a science and I feel great.

I am hoping to build on your momentum! As soon as the snow melts. Walking is so great.

How do I decide on a goal weight? For the past 7 years it's just been constant weight gain...I lost 30 pounds while housekeeping but I gained that back and more and since gaining all this weight I've never done anything to change my ways until these past four weeks.

When I was 18 I was 110 pounds and yes I was very healthy. But I am not 18 anymore, and I am not sure if just because I looked and felt great at 110 once I'd look that good at that weight now. I don't know when enough is enough. I do know I want a flat belly with my hip bones protruding, at least half the size of my thighs now, a distinct jawline, no neck fat, thin fingers, and a small butt. Should I just aim for that and see what happens? I am confused and I really don't know.

Oh btw, if I lose 6 pounds a week, I'll lose 100 pounds in 4 months!

The usual average is 100 lbs for 5 ft, then 5 lbs for every inch, give or take. Weight watchers uses BMI, which you can google the calc for online anywhere. If your period stops, youve gone too far!

Rather than the specific weight, I think that it is more important to figure what changes in lifestyle you are willing to make permanently. This is why people's weight goes up in down. They reach their goal and then slowly begin doing what they used to do. For me, the best way to keep my weight from going back up--I have to exercise daily. Most of my life I have done this. If I stop for six months and am not overeating--I do not immediately gain it back but if I am not in shape (I think exercise helps boost metabolism) then when I am not busy or the holidays come--that sort of thing--then my weight comes back. Despite the cake I had this morning--I try not to keep too many sweets, bread, cookies, etc. in the house. I no longer have alcohol in the house. I mostly cook low carb, low glycemic index meals....

I'm wearing sweatpants I almost threw away for being too small...skin tight....now they are super baggy and so is my favorite hoodie!

I think I'll wait before buying new clothes...I want to make sure they are so baggy a belt won't do it justice...and because I want to wait until the weather is too warm to wear any of my winter stuff...as all I have is winter clothing and my body is not quite ready for summer weather...but it will be...if I hadn't said it already...if I lose six pounds a week....I'll lose 100 pounds in roughly four months!
