First I need to thank Dani for inviting me to participate in this forum. I need it. I have been working to lose weight since last May, and have had some success, but then Christmas came along and I gained back 5 of the 57 pounds I had lost. Feeling big again. Funny how that works.
So my goal is short-term - just the next 3 months and then I will reassess and set a new goal. Easier to do it a chunck at a time (pun intended). I would like to lose 12 pounds by mid-April and continue adding muscle (as much as an old man can add). Carrie and I have been going to the gym 4 to 6 times a week which has been good for us, and we're going to continue the workouts, but I need to focus just a little better on the calorie intake. I do well during the day, but seem to lose it when I get home after working out. I need to keep my calories around 2000 to consistenly lose weight.
Good luck to everyone!
