Succeeding One Day at a Time

I started this journey several months ago...and thought I wasn't succeeding. Did I lose weight? Eh, some. Did I gain some insight? A ton. I realized that I'm not just looking to wear a bikini. (Although, that'd be wonderful, not gonna lie!) I'm here - seeking your encouragement, encouraging you - because I'm tired of being out of breath when I hike. I'm tired of not going to the mall because I know I'll find a million cute clothes, but not fit "right" into any of them. I'm tired of simply ...
I started this journey several months ago...and thought I wasn't succeeding. Did I lose weight? Eh, some. Did I gain some insight? A ton. I realized that I'm not just looking to wear a bikini. (Although, that'd be wonderful, not gonna lie!) I'm here - seeking your encouragement, encouraging you - because I'm tired of being out of breath when I hike. I'm tired of not going to the mall because I know I'll find a million cute clothes, but not fit "right" into any of them. I'm tired of simply being tired. I'm tired of feeling disgusting after a big, greasy meal. I'm tired of feeling sorry for myself.

I've seen so many inspirational stories on SP. Some of you had a hundred pounds to lose - and you did it. Some of you had 30 pound to lose - and you did it. You are my heroes. You're the reason why I'm continuing on this journey with more resolve. And as I continue, I can't wait to find "me".

My Goals:
I would love to develop, more than anything, a new lifestyle. But my goals are to be healthy, a little less tired, have a little more self esteem and lose about 35 pounds.

Goal #1: Lose 35 pounds to reach a "normal" weight

Goal #2: Be able to run 1.5 miles without stopping

Goal #3: Be able to run a 5k without stopping

Goal #4: Drop my BMI to a healthy range

My Program:
Stay within SP's recommend calorie limit.

Exercise at least 5 times a week for 30 minutes at a time.

Set small goals of two to three pounds and have rewards for each.

Thanks! I really needed a change of background. Maine is just so bleak right now. Still.
I think I need to check out Jersey Shore. Everyone talks about it, and it sounds like a great, light way to pass the time feeding the baby. Plus, I used to work on LBI, so it's a little like going home to hear that Jersey accent :)

no didn't get on the treadmill last night I have to start in the mornings that is the best time for me. I'm planning on doing 30 minute walk at lunch today. I'm going to freeze my butt off though. Maybe it will make me walk that much faster!! emoticon
