At the end of June my parents set the date for our family cruise next year. This event has been the catalyst I've needed to finally get off my butt and start getting healthy. I am at least 150lbs over weight and I want to be able to enjoy the vacation next year. Now I don't plan to lose it all before then as that would not be healthy, but I would like to lose at least 50lbs before then. That is 1lb a week over the course of a year. So far I have managed to lose about 20lbs. It's a good start and I hope to keep it up. Sharing helps keep me motivated.
Before: June 28, 2014 307lbs Current: September 1, 2014 292lbs
My husband and I have been doing our best to walk at least 30 minutes 3 times a week. Some weeks we manage to do more others less. We are using myfitnesspal to log our food so that we make sure to not over eat, at least not often. And we are using Runtastic pedometer to log our walking. It all helps keeps me going.
