I have been fat my entire life, minus maybe the first year or so. Due to this, I've usually found weight loss daunting. I always focused on how much weight I need to lose, and was always overwhelmed by the number. I would tell myself the number was too big, and I shouldn't even try. I lost 35 pounds over the last year, mostly not trying to lose weight, even though I was at my highest weight ever at 254 pounds.
This time, I did the math. I'm 64 pounds from a healthy weight, and I'd like to be at 150 for 4 pounds of wiggle room. When I get down to that weight, I will reasses to see if I should get down to 135, which was my original goal. That number doesn't seem so daunting this time. I don't know why, but I know I can do it. It'll be slow, and full of mistakes, but I can do it.
I'm hoping to be living in onederland in a little more than two months.
