Ht. 5'11", Start: 226 lb, Today: 196 lb, Goal: 180 lb - Hi all! I used to come around here and thought I would return. I am currently up rowing in a national team development program and have been working on my weight. I live with a light weight so there's a little pressure coming from him, even though he doesn't know it/intend it. Anywho, I have made a goal to be at 185 at the least by August 19. I think this is very possible. I weigh in Wednesdays and I'm hoping to lose something. I find that reward systems work. Little ones. Like I loooove coffee and if I lose a pound or more each week, that Wed I get to go to starbucks and order something reasonable. This way I satiate my sweet tooth to prevent binges later and am rewarding myself (in a nonexpensive way) for doing something good for my body. I also do this with school (straight A's, new erg PRs,etc) but with things obviously better than food. I will weigh in tomorrow and have been peaking at the scale and I think I lost atleast two, though its not official until Wed morning. 185 here I come!
