I decided that I couldn't trust Rob to accurately describe my weight loss experience so even though I am daunted by the task of posting on a blog site with authors (I am not a writer) I am going to start my own posts.

My goals are huge but I am giving myself plenty of time to accomplish them. I want to lose 70 pounds but I am going to do it one pound a week. I should reach my goal in a little over a year.

So here we go. I am using an online nutrition/fitness tracker called Sparkpeople. I love it because it helps me not only keep track of the calories I eat but the amount of fat/protein/carbohydrates I eat and helps me balance them. It also gives me a calculated calorie intake range that is safe and tons of articles and recipes to help me on this journey. I have lost 3.5 pounds this month and my goal is 4.

I am excited to post here with you all.

Sounds like a great plan and realistic goals, looking forward to hearing from you along your journey. I hear you about feeling a bit underqualified to write in the same space as all of these authors, but it is nice to know that they are here just writing from their hearts.

Good goals--and great start! Best of luck.

So glad to have you here, Erin! Rob hasn't said anything of a wrongful nature about you, so you've been safe. :) If it makes you feel better, I've got over a hundred to lose, so your 70 seems like not a scary thing to me.
