That ends now. I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I left out my sore lower back since you can't see it from this angle...
Here are my measurements as of today (January 30, 2011):
Funny weird (or haha - you decide): I bought the same pajama pants and the same navy v-necks in XL, L, M, and S so that I can keep taking my photos on Sunday as I lose weight.
My current BMI is 34, which qualifies me as obese. A healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9 for my height (5'4"), which is a weight range between 110 and 140. I am looking to land at 134, which would give me a BMI of 23.
Since both of my parents died before retirement age (my dad of a heart attack and my mom of a ruptured brain aneurysm) and since I would like to think of myself as more active throughout all of my much longer life, I had better get busy living...or get busy dying. (Name that movie.)
My current plan:
Calories: 1500 per day; I'm automating my breakfast with 2 slices of toasted Ezekiel bread, 2 tbsp peanut butter, and a sliced banana. I'll be eating Lean Cuisines for lunch and dinner and eating 2 more fruits and 5 servings of veggies.
Exercise: by the end of each week, I plan to have walked 14 miles starting out.
I'll keep you posted on my progress every Sunday!
Are you trying to get healthy? What steps are you taking? What's working for you?
