My Introduction:

My name is Nikkie. I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. I have gone on diets quite a few times over the year. I just kind of stopped. I never really followed trends. Just watched what I ate more and tried to exercise. I have an issue with my lower back that gets painful after I’ve walked or done anything physical for a certain amount of time. It does put a big damper on working out. I’m working on finding a way to take care of that.

My Overall Goals:

I want to get down to 125. My current weight is 230. I know this will take a good year or two. I’m okay with that. I also want to try to completely make myself over once I’ve lost the weight.

Goals for the Coming Week:

Try to exercise at least 3 days of the week.
Stay strict about my food routine.
Try to get a scale and some workout equipment.
Maintain a food diary.
Lose 2 pounds.

Initial Thoughts:

I’m very nervous about posting these every week. I do think they will help hold me accountable to where I actually stick to my plan as much as humanly possible. I know that set backs are going to happen. I am not going to let that hold me back from achieving my goal by the end of 2022.
