Since my youngest child is seven years old, I don't think I can dismiss my weight as "baby weight" anymore. My BMI is now 30.5 which puts me officially in the obese category. I will be turning 40 in April and, coincidentally, I have 40 pounds to lose.
So....I joined a gym. I plan to work my schedule around going there to work out every day.
And....I signed up for http://www.sparkpeople.com/, a free on-line site where I can count calories and make sure I am getting enough protein.
I would love to be down to my target weight by the time I turn 40, but I don't think forty pounds in four months is really practical. Instead I'm going to shoot for losing half of that by April. That would mean five pounds each month.
Goal #1 5 lbs. February 1st
