I’ve been thinking about my current weight loss plan, and my goal of losing 90 pounds by September 29, 2009. (Click here to read the weigh in where I decided that 90 pounds would be my goal and September 29, 2009 would be my goal date.) I picked September 29, 2009 because that will be exactly one year from September 29, 2008, the date that, in retrospect, I finally put everything together and got serious about losing weight.
I have decided that I need a name for my current weight loss plan. Why? I have been writing about my (failed) attempts at weight loss for almost three years, and I really can’t look back at January of 2007 as my starting date, because I never really focused or put my heart into getting in shape. So, for all practical purposes, September 29, 2008 is my real starting date. From now on, I will refer to my current weight loss plan as –
The 929 Project
I want to lose 90 pounds by September 29, 2009.
My starting date was September 29, 2008. Weight – 252.2 Pounds
My goal date is September 29, 2009. Weight – 162.2 Pounds
Total weight loss goal – 90 Pounds

I do want to say one thing about my goal of losing 90 pounds. If I succeed, I will weigh 162.6 pounds. I haven’t been at that weight in almost 15 years. After losing an initial 50 pounds or so, I will reevaluate my goal, to see if it is still realistic. I am 5 feet, 8 inches tall, and 162.6 pounds is considered a healthy weight for that height, but I might find that I am much healthier and stronger at a slightly higher weight, say 175 pounds. We shall see.
