The Plan

I worked out a plan today. Working with a dietitian, I have a sensible eating plan that, if I follow it, will get me to my goal. The plan is around 1600 calories per day which should result in a weight loss of 2 lbs per week. If I stay on plan, that will get me to my goal weight before my 40th birthday. Pretty cool. It's a weight of 220 which is still too high by most standards but considering I haven't seen that number on a scale since 7th grade, I will work to that and then go from there. I am trying not to think too far ahead because if I do, the task seems too daunting and history says that I get overwhelmed and give up.
I will do this. I will.


  1. Congratulations on finally making the decision to change. I hope you make reachable goals and are able to reach what you want.

  2. That's so great to have a plan in place, and a dietitian to help you along.
    One thing that is so important to grasp is baby-steps. Make smaller, more attainable goals and don't look at the bigger picture. I have only recently "really" gotten that concept, and it really helps to make the weight-loss process a lot more manageable and less overwhelming...
    I really hope you're "If's" turn into "I am", "I will" and "I can"- you can do this!

    Take care,

  3. Sounds like you have the right idea. Tackle small attainable at a time...and you WILL do it! :)
