Let the Countdown Begin – Diet Day 59

Before starting this diet my goal was to try and get back to 175 pounds. This is what I weighed when I was in high school and playing baseball and when I felt like I was at my optimum weight and size. From everything I read I was told that once I left fat burning stage I could expect to gain five pounds. This meant that I really needed to be at 170 pounds in order to end up at my goal.

Initially I underestimated how heavy I had gotten. I thought my weight was around 200 pounds so my goal was to lose 25 pounds. When I started this diet I found I was not 200 but in actuality I was just over 210! This put my weight loss goal at 40 pounds instead of 25.
