Weight to 215 lbs by August 19th, 2013

I will start off by saying that this is not my end goal weight but the first of many targets I will set on my weight loss journey.

I have been wanting to get back down to 215 lbs for over seven years now.  The significance of this weight, is that I weighed 215 when I met my partner and before I gained back the rest of the 65 lbs I had worked so hard to lose the 1-2 years before we met.

This is not taking into account the 5-10 lbs I no longer have on my body since having surgery last Summer.  I am not sure how much the surgeon took off and have tried to decide how to factor it in to my 215 lb marker.  I have decided to just stick with the 215 lb marker because of the significance it holds for me.

The closest I have been to 215 lbs in 8+ years was a few weeks before surgery when I hit 217 before slowing gaining back 20 lbs in the few weeks leading up to and few months post-op.  When I had lost 65 lbs over a decade ago, my lowest weight was 195 lbs which will be my next weight loss goal.
