Food Fight

I want to lose weight

I am not overweight, and I know all girls think that they need to lose weight, but still. I want to lose some weight. I joined a gym almost a year ago when I weighed 147lbs. That was after me losing almost 15lbs over more than 6 months. For the next 6 months, I ranged between 143lbs and 148lbs, slowly building lean body mass and improving my overall strength and endurance by going to the gym, and I got my body fat percentage to about 21%.

Then I switch to being mostly vegetarian, spending more time eating and drinking, and started slacking at going to the gym. So as a result, I have gained about 10 pounds since March. I am now at 156lbs. I know that isn’t muscle gain.

My goal is to get back to around 143lbs by Thanksgiving. A big feast seems like a good target. I seem to have pretty good luck accomplishing goals that I blog about, so I figured I should write about this goal.

My plan is to go back to going to the gym four days a week, no excuses. Also, I am going to get back into lifting weights, which I haven’t don’t consistently for months. As for food, I am going to target 1200 calories a day starting tomorrow. I haven’t decided if I am going to introduce meat back into my diet. I might start eating some turkey and fish again. We’ll see. I also plan on periodically updating this blog with my progress, along with sample menus of what I am eating and workouts.

Here goes nothing! Now I am off to the gym!

Glad to see you’re getting started again! I’m sort of new to getting “serious” about weight loss, so it is nice to commiserate with other people in the same situation. I somehow managed to lose about 45 pounds without really trying, but now I’m struggling with that last 20…Anyway, way to go!

I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely price sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
