Ht. 5'2", Start: 265 lb, Today: 228 lb (BMI: 42), Goal: 135 lb - so today was my last day of classes and now spring break is here. Being home makes it easier to eat healthier but the workout is harder since i don't have a gym. What i'm planning to do starting today is continuing my insanity workout and joining it with some videos on excerise and some strength training. I'm going to work really really hard my next small goal is 9 pounds. This week is going to be insane =)

you're totally right I haven't been taking it one day at a time. I've been taking it a week at a time and i've only been losing 1 pound. I would like to start losing 2 pounds a week, so I will start taking it one day at a time and doing my best each day. Thanks i wasn't thinking about it lol it's been so long i've kinda been focusing on it long term. =)

Good for you, that sounds like a great idea. It sounds like you've chosen something you like and will be able to stick to. Can I make a suggestion? You mentioned your next "small goal" is 9lbs - why not make it 2 instead? The smaller the goal the easier it is to get to & feel successful. I've found that by taking the weight loss process only one day at a time makes it SO much more manageable. I weigh myself weekly & losing 2 pounds a week is exciting & you feel really good about yourself once you do it & feel motivated enough to lose 2 more the following week! :) keep it up!
