Weight Loss Goals

I’ve lost about 37 pounds since roughly March of 2012.   If you believe that the BMI charts are set in stone, then I have another 36 pounds to go before I’m in the healthy range.  However, I have about 7 pounds to go before I can shake the “obese” label.


I want to lose weight.

According to the BMI chart and mathematics, I should weigh no more than 161 pounds.  As much as I hope to some day actually hit 160 again, my long term goal is to stay at or below 170 pounds.  If I can enjoy life in the 150-160 range then that would also be very awesome.  170 is my ceiling.

The thing is, I’ve started making goals:

  • Keep losing weight until my left breast and right breast have shrunken equally.
  • Learn to moonwalk.
  • Lift more weights.
  • Go swimming without a T-shirt on.
  • Lift more weights.
  • Reach the end of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey while playing it my exercise bike.
  • Let my friends see my tattoos.
  • Get more pictures taken to totally spruce up my Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr/LinkedIn/Livejournal profiles.
  • Dance in front of my friends.  I don’t drink any more, so this is kind of a big goal.

I’m staying a lot more active and eating a LOT of vegetables.  My favorite technique is to cover them in locally made salsa.  This stuff is low sodium, made of more vegetables, and tastes amazing.  I get the stuff with habanero peppers.  The thing is, I love vegetables naturally.  I love them as close to raw as they can be eaten.  So, I’m capitalizing on this good dietary instinct that’s already within me.

I really don’t like fruit but am eating about two servings a day anyway.

I’m very lucky and happy to be this deep into a new “me.”  I want that to be the best and most authentic “me” that it can be.  I want to moonwalk with my tattoos showing.
