A new losing cycle = additional rules to follow.

So here are the new rules:

1. I have to slow down while and eating and properly chew my food. I've always been a really fast eater and eat after I'm full. I hope this will curb that.

2. I have to add another strength building exercise. Since I alternate everyday between my upper and lower body, I have to do an additional machine to focus on my core.

3. When I come to a flight of stairs, I have to run up it (if possible).  I have no current plans to visit the Washington Monument. 

I hope this helps me hit 199 by my birthday. I haven't really made any progress yet, which is so frustrating - but I am trying to stay positive.

Back on the Wagon

As of today I get to start losing again. According to my the guidelines I arbitrarily set for myself I have to lose 23 pounds which would put me at 207. However, I don't think I could be so close to getting out of the 200's for a month and not do anything about it (it's been hard enough being so close to the halfway point).

So hold on to your socks people...I am going to lose 31 pounds which will put me at 199 pounds. So not only will I have hit that major milestone - I will also have lost 100 pounds. It's almost impossible to comprehend. 

Here are the photos:
