I have short term weight-loss goals and long-term weight loss goals. In my mind, I want to be under 200 lbs. by March/April — just enough time to get some rad new tank tops for Coachella.
But in the short term, I want to be under 230 lbs. by Oct. 1. Even sweeter, I’d like to reach 228 lbs. by the end of October which would mean 30 total pounds lost in nearly 1 year.
I’m on the verge … and I’m going to get there.
In the last week I’ve been very focused on cooking everything at home and using all of the ingredients in my fridge. I think it’s paying off because I’m in control of my calories, and also because cooking multiple meals a day gets me on my feet a little longer than I usually am.
Burning calories by cooking. That’s what I’m talking about.
As for the scale: Today I weigh 233.3 lbs. I started this blog weighing 258 lbs. That’s a total loss of 24.7 lbs.
