Starting Towards the Finish line of Losing 20 Pounds For the Year

Ok, I've procrastinated long enough. It is time to get back to business with my weight loss. Last year I lost 36 pounds altogether. I did not start logging it on my blog until I was down to 210 pounds. That would only show me losing 22 pounds. My actually beginning weight was 224 pounds. I am proud to say that I am down to 188 pounds & the exciting thing is that I have been keeping it off. I have not been doing any extreme dieting or exercise, but a couple of days out of the week I have been trying to watch what I eat.
After searching the web trying to get myself motivated again, I have run across a diet plan called, "Eat Stop Eat." I think I am going to give this diet a try for a few weeks to see how it works. This is how it is suppose to work. I can eat anything I want every day of the week except for 2 of them. Now when I say eat anything I want I don't mean I can go over board. We all know if we eat like that every day the pounds will pile up. I mean I can eat regular food without measuring portions, but being reasonable. The other two days during the week I would begin a fast & allow the fast to go on for 24 hours with only drink (water, tea , coffee, with out sugar). I would begin one evening after supper & fast until supper the next evening. This is how the diet works. I just choose two days out of the week to do this. I think I am going to give it a try.
As I have said in the past, I want to lose my weight slowly so that it will remain off. So I have set a very reasonable goal for this year. I only want to lose 20 pounds this year. Of course, if more comes off I won't mind, LOL. If i can lose 20 pounds this year & 20 pounds next year then I will be with in a few pounds of my goal weight.
Here's a link to an audio about the Eat Stop Eat plan.
So today I'm up & running towards the finish line of losing 20 pounds this year, starting today.
Beginning weight: 188 lbs. I had read a few articles about it, but the audio is enough to give someone the idea as of how the plan works.
