Realistically, I am about 30 pounds overweight, maybe 35, but at this point, my goal is to lose 10 pounds to start off. As I'm sitting here feeling the ache and stiffness in my lower back, that first ten pounds feels like Everest. I really need to get in for a back x-ray but in the meantime, I will continue to do my various home workout DVD's in the middle of the day once my back has loosened up a bit.
I won't actually be weighing myself because I believe our home scale is inaccurate. I will measure my weight loss by which clothes start to fit me again and the way I look in the mirror.
Pros should stop wasting money on coaches and doctors and just read the experts on this forum.
