The Henry Ford Diet Plan

"Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs." -- Henry Ford

How much do you want to lose? Is it 30 pounds? Maybe 40 pounds? Or really--you are trying to lose closer to 100 pounds! Congratulations are taking on a challenge that will totally change your life.

Losing a significant amount of weight is a big challenge and it can be depressing to see the weight come off at a slow pace. Sure, it's a faster pace than when we put on the weight, but we weren't focusing on our weight back then. This lack of focus in the past is why we find ourselves in our current predicament.

I have a big goal with this diet. My plan is to work hard on getting to 190 pounds, then regroup and shoot for 180. That would be 50 pounds and to be quite honest, my heart is set on revisiting the 170's for the first time in a couple of decades. The problem is that 50 pounds is so far away. A 5 pound weight loss still leaves me 45 pounds from my goal. Even a really good effort like losing 25 pounds in 2 or 3 months would put me only halfway to the finish line. That's tough on a person mentally, so why don't we break it down into smaller goals that will add up to one big accomplishment? Here's what I'm looking out with my diet:

---225 pounds: I've been hanging around the 228-232 range since Thanksgiving. Getting down to 225 would show that real progress is being made.

---219 pounds: Getting out of the 220's would be fantastic. Also, this would be the type of weight loss that shows up in looser clothing.

---213 pounds: There was a time when 215 seemed to be a wall of resistance that I could not break. Getting a couple of pounds below that would be quite a milestone.

---207 pounds: The point where a person of my height is considered overweight instead of obese. It would put me in the middle third segment of American adults.

---199 pounds: Under 200 for the first time since a short lived successful diet in 2006. This would be an awesome achievement.

---190 pounds: It's a big jump, but let's feed off the good vibe of the successes above. At this point I need to maintain and look at getting more active to push the weight loss lower.

Doesn't that look easier? Six reasonable diets that stack on top of each other to get me to a really significant achievement. It's nice to think about 190 pounds or lower, but for now the goal is to get to 225. I can do that over the next few weeks.
