Towards a Thinner Tomorrow: An Update

First, some math:

239 lbs – current weight
160 lbs – goal weight
79 lbs – difference between current & goal weight
39.5 – number of weeks it’ll take to lose the difference at a rate of 2 lbs per week
9.8  – number of months it’ll take to lose the difference at a rate of 2 lbs per week
I’ve clearly got my work cut out for me. Since my last update, I haven’t been doing as much as I can. That said, I have been easing myself into both dieting and incorporating physical activity into my days. I think I’ve finally hit the point where my body is retrained and resilient enough to engage in physical activity on a routine basis without having something as simple as running a mile result in extreme soreness the next day. I’ve also been cooking healthy foods instead of relying on buying food. I haven’t quite nailed down what my exact tracking methods are going to be, but I have been experimenting. So, here’s my report for 04/05/2011:
