I was recently involved with shooting a reality TV show for a major network that will air in February. I was on camera for about 12 hours. I saw some stills from the shoot, and I was horrified. I knew that I had gained weight over the years, but jeez...I looked like Jabba.
I need to lose weight. I'm going to start on Monday and wonder if anyone wants to join along. I am not gong for stunt weight loss, but a healty 2 pounds a week. I will be working out about 5 times a week and cutting out all crap from my diet. Recently, I have gone a few weeks at at ime without sweets, but I need to give them up completely. I've never done drugs, and I've only ever drank socially, but I am addicted to choclate and diet Pepsi.
I've always been big, and know that I look strong and healty around 200 lbs. When I got married in 2003, I was 210. Between then and now I have completed my masters degree, worked four years as a full time highschool teacher in NYC, had two kids, bought and fixed up a house, written and illustrated nine children's books and ate terribly.
Right now I'm 242. So, 40 lbs is my first goal.
I've seen weight loss threads out here in the past, and thought it might be a way to do this with a supportive group. All I'm asking is that we check every day or so, and discuss what were trying to do.
