I want to lose 30-45 pounds. My start weight is 196. I am planning my meals according to calories and trying, for the most part, to keep the carbs low and to stay away from processed foods. I had been at 174-180 for the last 4 years while I lived in Mexico. I moved back to the US and gained 20 pounds. Before then I weighed 227 at my highest, and even though I have made good progess overall, I am not done yet. I am getting older and I realize that I need to be smarter in how I try to lose weight because the old ways don't work for me anymore. I aim for daily cardio and hopefully add some strength training. I do not have an end point to my weightloss until I get to my goal, however long that will take. My goal weight is between 135-145.

Been obese since 2007 when I had my son, Victor. Been trying to lose weight since then, but never had too much success. In 2013, the family and I moved to Mexico. In 2019 we moved back to the United States. Trying to keep overeating out of the picture. Keeping as active as I can while juggling family life.
