My Goals:
My goal is to lose 250 pounds. I've been on this current journey since fall 2008 and have lost as much as 94+ pounds. I've experienced a gain in weight due to poor eating habits and a stalled reaction to my gym routine even though I've been changing it up I think it's because I've been eating crap lately! Giving in to cravings.

My Program:
Following good old fashioned common knowledge. Cooking more of what I eat, watching how many calories I'm eating, trying to watch my fat and starch intake, and getting cardio and weight training at least 3 times a week.

Personal Information:
I'm from Chicago, IL, USA.

I have been overweight (briefly) then obese (mostly) my entire life. I am just hoping to reach my goal weight and physical appearance and live to enjoy it for a good number of years.

Saw your post in the Halloween challenge and I would suggest changing the batteries for sure. My scale was acting up too it would say I lost 20 pounds in a day.
