Weight loss update

Well, I began contemplating/attempting weight loss about a year ago, on April 20th, 2007. On that day, I was 340 lbs. Today I am 305 pounds. That’s 35 pounds, or about 3 lbs a month. Really, my biggest months for weight loss were April and May of 2007 (a 20 lb loss), gained some over Sept./Oct. of 2007, then another 20 lbs in December 2007 (for my vacation) and another 15 lbs between Feb 2, 2008 and April 11, 2007. So, I managed to lose 55 lbs, but somewhere over the course of the year I gained 20 lbs.

I am glad I have lost/kept off 35 lbs, but I am disappointed that the number is not higher. In a world filled with common sense and followed-through plans, I could’ve been over 100 lbs lighter at this time. Since I am not really the common-sense type, this didn’t happen. But, I am looking forward to this next year of more weight loss. My goal for April 20th, 2009 is to be 250 lbs.
