Well, it's been about 4 years since I lost all that weight in high school, and over that time I have gradually gained some back. I decided to start dieting again and running 3-5 times a week. I'm doing the Special K Diet loosely, which is eating a bowl of Special K for two meals, then eating a normal, but not exuberant dinner. I have been doing it for about a week and I can tell it's already running. I've also been running two laps around my neighborhood on the weeknights.
My goal is to lose 20 pounds total at least, but ideally I would like to lose 25-30, bringing me down to 155-160 pounds. Wish me luck! I'll keep the blog updated with my status.
