This isn't much of a weight loss story, but I want some support. Last year when I went to my physical I weighed in at 5' and 135 lbs. My doctor told me to start eating more nutritious foods and leading a more active lifestyle, and I didn't do much to help that. Though I didn't work very hard this year, I must have done something right because it's a year later and I've lost 8 lbs. My doctor told me to continue to live a healthier, more active life, and she wants me to continue to lose weight. I would like to speed things up a little so I can be at my goal weight by the end of August and start to maintain my weight throughout the year. I would like to get down to a size 2 or a size 4. Since a size 4 sounds more realistic, I am aiming for 115 lbs. I may continue this diet until I weigh 105 or 110 lbs, but I don't intend on going any further with this. I haven't been meticulously counting calories, but I've been allowing myself approximately 300 calories per meal plus 300 calories for snacks. In addition, I have been biking 7 miles each day at 10 miles per hour. I've also been trying to get out of the house more and do things with my friends. I am hoping to lose one pound per week, which I think is a reasonable goal. I hope to use this site to keep myself on track and I would love anyone's input or advice.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
