Curious how many of us out there are seriously trying to lose weight in 2015. By serious I mean have a plan and are taking direct steps to do so.
I know there are mixed opinions on how much weight loss and fitness benefit shooters but I know for me it seems to help.
For me, at this time last year I was 250+. I got down to 215 last spring. My goal was to get below 210 (never quite made it). I managed to stay between 215 and 220 all year until the holidays hit. By Christmas I was 229 and I decided that was it. I was not going back to 250. I am back down to 221 and my goal is to make 210 by the end of February.
The primary change I made was diet. I went back to entering everything I eat into an app on my phone and using that to keep my calories at around 1600-1800 per day. That does not sound like much but I am at a desk most of the day which doesn't require a lot of calories.
In addition to the diet I am exercising 4-5 times a week for an hour or more with time spent stretching, etc. at home on top of that.
For those also trying to lose weight in 2015, what are your goals and strategies to achieve them?
