Weight Loss – Time to Make a Plan to Lose Weight

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any comments about My Weight Loss Plan, so here’s the update: I was doing well for a while, but I’ve slipped back into bad habits. As of today I weigh 198 pounds; I’m a 43 year old male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, so a more appropriate weight for me would be around 178 pounds, which means I need to lose 15 or 20 pounds.

My peak weight was 205 pounds, and I managed to lose about 25 pounds on the Atkins Diet, but I didn’t stick with it, so obviously now some of the weight has returned. I also need to spend more effort on exercise.

So, here’s my plan:

I am going to focus on slow carbs, not no carbs. During the week I’ll skip the cereal and eat eggs instead (tomorrow I’ll post what I mean by that). I’ll eat lots of vegetables and proteins, and avoid anything white (white bread, pasta, etc.). I will avoid all deserts, and drink lots of water.

Also, I’m going to start exercising; I’ll post my thoughts on that in two days time, so check back for more details, and wish me luck.
