Start weight (285) / Current weight (252) / Goal weight (199)
My major goal for 2012 is to be under 200lb by my brother’s wedding in September 2012. This is an ambitious goal, but I’d like to have a decent crack at it.
After a quick squizz at the calendar, there are 32 dieting weeks left until D-Day. If I have a good week then I can lose 2lb pretty consistently. So, that’s a maxiumum possible loss of 64lb, giving me a bit of wiggle room for disastrous weeks–I’m not daft enough to think that I’m going to be perfect.
Here are the mini-goals I’ll be hitting along the way. I plan to strike these off as I reach them.

15st 12 (4.5 stone lost)

14st 12 (5.5 stone lost)
14st 5 (6 stone lost)
199lb (8th September, 2012)
196lb (14 stone)
To achieve this I’m going to ensure that I plan each week’s meals, make sure I have good and healthy snacks available (even though I don’t snack very much anymore), and get consistent about exercising. I also need to start getting enough sleep to help keep my stress (and cortisol levels) low and hopefully stop fat accumulating on my belly!
