    Here is the backstory to my ordeal and where I have come from and where I hope to go.

    http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=4211894

    Cliffs: I have congestive heart failure caused by cardiomyopathy and am in the process of losing as much weight as possible. I have gone from 440 pounds on Dec. 3 when I first saw the doctor to my current weight of 352.6 over the course of the past six months.

    Goals:

    Overall goal: 200 pounds
    Get as close to 200 pounds as I can, and if it works out, go even lower.

    June 11th goal: 340 pounds
    Get to 340 pounds, or 100 pounds lost since Dec. 3, 2008

    July 9th goal: 330 pounds
    I see my pulmonary doctor again and hope to be down to 330 pounds. He wants me down to 365 by that time, but I feel that was unrealistic as I weighed 374 last time I saw him on April 13, so to lose nine pounds in three months would be a failure for me. My original goal was 340 but I am already so close with over a month to go, I want to shoot for a little bit lower now.

    October goal: 310 pounds
    I see my cardiologist again sometime in October and want to get to this weight by that appointment whenever it is scheduled for. I actually want to be lighter than this, but I do not want to be too unrealistic about it. My goal I set for myself earlier this year is to be 299 pounds by Dec. 3, marking a period of one year since finding out my condition. I will also be getting an echocardiogram done on this day, so hopefully that will be more good news.

    December 3rd goal: 299 pounds
    I want to be under 300 pounds for the first time in over 14 years by the time I reach the one year anniversary of what has turned out to be one of the best days of my life. That day finally gave me the motivation to do what I should have done a long time ago and get my weight under control.

    Those are my short term goals for now, once the new year begins, who knows what I will be shooting for then. I will be updating my weight only on Mondays most likely, because people tell me I shouldn't weight myself everyday. Hopefully everyday I can update what I ate on here and the exercise I did do and get any suggestions or help from anyone that is willing to help me out. Thanks to all of you who have been encouraging of me since I have actually told someone besides friends about this. It is much appreciated and I am thankful for all positive comments and also receptive of any negative comments.

    Monday, June 1, 2009 will be the new first day of the rest of my life, hopefully this part turns out better than the one before it. :x:

    Good luck with all of your goals man.

    The short term goals will really help you out in the long run, but don't get frustrated if you miss one of them. Just plug away and keep focused.

    I normally don't eat those sun chips, but I forgot to get everything together for lunch so I just went get some of those because they are pretty damn good. Only the second time I have had them though.

    As far as exercising, I only was able to walk 45 minutes at lunch today at a fairly good pace. I wanted to do 30 minutes on the elliptical when getting home after work, but stuff ran over and I had to go somewhere, so never made it home till after 10:30. Although technically I guess I could go now though. Anyway, hopefully tomorrow will be a bit better than today was as far as exercising goes. I am sure I can get the calories down a bit more too, but it wasn't that bad. :hs:
