My name is Tiffany and I am 34 years old...soon to be 35. A few years ago I weighed 250 lbs and was accustomed to feeling terrible. I was complaining about my weight to my best friend and she said "...you do everything you want to do when you put your mind to it, why can't you lose the weight..." As simple as that comment was it had a major impact on me. I searched my soul to see why I had so many failed attempts to lose weight. I didn't have all of the answers but I knew I had to exercise. I started cardio the next day and got my nutrition under control much later. In one year I lost 30lbs but still looked the same. I hired a trainer, lost another 30 lbs and packed on some nice muscle which helped to change my shape. I have been able to maintain at 190 for almost a year. I still have work to do. I want to lose more weight and fat while preserving my lean body mass.
I call this the voyage to the unknown because I know I will look differently and become stronger each day. This journal will capture my nutrition and workouts. I know I will learn more from the people who visit and I hope to help others who are ready to make a lifestyle change.
So, at 5'7", I believe 165 would be a good weight for me. I would like to lose 1.0-1.5 lb per week so I am looking at 16-25 weeks of cutting. I will have my body fat done by a trainer this week. My weight goal may change once I get my bf estimate.
