Day 1 - Weigh in #1

   It is a little cliche to start my weight loss plan on a Monday - but I swear it is just a coincidence. Or maybe not.
   Saturday I decided to start the blog (I think it will help with the weight loss), but the weekend was not such a good starting day. I went to Annapolis for the weekend, and had to indulge in a lot of crab - cream of crab, 1/2 lb crab cake, and crab cake eggs benedict.  I do not even want to know how many calories that ended up being. 

   I do not have a set goal - whenever I feel good when I look myself at the mirror is my goal. But to have some number down I think that a 120 lbs goal is a good starting point.
  I am 144 lbs as today, so I have 24 lbs to loose. It does sounds like a lot, but I am confident that  the first pounds to loose will be relatively easy.


   The plan is to set our wedding day for September 7th, 2013. So loosing 28 lbs in about 20 months is more then sufficient. But as I said 120 lbs is just a starting point. If I feel that I have to loose more I will. But If I feel I am good at 120 lbs I will stop loosing weight, and plan to maintain what I would have lost.

   I also have another special date in mind which is February 10th, 2012. I know it is very close, but I hope to have lost at least 5 lbs by then. I will be wearing a dress on Feb 10th, but the detail is that it is a white dress. A nice body makes a white dress way more flattering, so this diet need to start ASAP. February is also Valentine's day month. Me and my fiancé  started to talk about going to a warm place for Valentine's day.

Warm place = Sun = Beach = Bikini 
Yeah I better starting loosing some weight FAST!
I still do not have a strick plan yet, for now I will just:
  • Eat healthy;
  • Cut down on carbs and sweets;
  • Exercise more often. By more often I mean...EVERY DAY (At least during the week);
  • Drink more water (I rarely drink more then 2 cups of water per day, which is really BAD);
  • Track what I eat (and calories count);
Hoping for a good start!!!!
