Summer! Yay!

I have had some successes and have also fallen down... a lot! I got down to 209.6 but essentially took off 3 weeks and am now back up to 217-219. It is well into spring and summer is coming. I am going to take advantage of the weather, get out, get moving and eat lighter.

I am taking on the yard work and have let my lawn guy go so this should be a great workout every week. I am also going to join a new gym. My gym let me know they were closing the DAY THEY CLOSED. Which was fine ...

I am taking on the yard work and have let my lawn guy go so this should be a great workout every week. I am also going to join a new gym. My gym let me know they were closing the DAY THEY CLOSED. Which was fine because I had stopped going. It was a tiny place and did not have any of the equipment I liked so I am going to a bigger place that even has a pool. I will get tons of pool time with the kiddo this summer but I would love to swim all year round!

I will also be using the grill a lot. Grilled chicken, potatoes, and corn are some of my favorite summer foods! Grilling can help keep things light and less comfort foody such as chili or spaghetti.

I am going to be setting more goals with both my weight loss journey and other areas of my life where I need to be more organized. I know that this summer I can get back on the horse and make the progress I want to make!

This is going to be an amazing summer!!


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

January was up and down for me. I got into a smaller pair of pants but then the last few weeks I have been struggling with staying on track.

This month I want to start again, focus, and get back on track. I need to stop this downward spiral now before it gets out of hand. I am down about 22 lbs since December 1, 2013 which is awesome but I still have a long journey ahead of me.

February is going to be about moving forward and making everything stick. I have a goal coming up (220 lbs by February 15) and there is a chance I will not make it. I am still trying and I am certainly close so it will not be a complete and terrible failure. It will not discourage me. I am still down from the first of the year so that is heading in the right direction. I just have to keep with it and keep moving forward.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I am starting out this new year on the right foot...for once. I am catching up with my studies and hope to be starting my new career in the next 6 months! But more so related to this site, I am actively working on my diet instead of just talking about it.

I know that there is still a week left to 2013 but as it stands right now I am only .6 lbs away from my January 1st goal. I am confident that I can make it and more importantly that I WILL make it.

Starting the new year off with my 1st goal reached, or at least close to it, puts me in a great position to keep rolling in the direction I am. I am feeling really good about this next year. I know there will be downs along with the ups but I don't feel like I am going to let them run me completely off course as easily as they have in the past. I know I can do this!

This year's weight loss goals:
-January 1, 2013: 230 lbs
-February 15, 2014: 220 lbs
-April 1, 2014: 210 lbs
-June 1, 2014: 199 lbs
-September 30, 2014 (My birthday): 175 lbs
-October 31, 2014: 170 lbs
-November 27, 2014: 165 lbs
-January 1, 2015: 155 lbs

If all goes well then I should be only 10-20 lbs away from my ultimate goal by the end of 2014. I KNOW I can do this. Even if the scale numbers may not be exactly what I hope for them to be I will be more than happy as long as I just keep making forward strides and getting closer to my goal.

This year is My New Beginning!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I have set smaller goals, reasonable goals. We are all well, knock on wood, so let's see if I can get on a roll and not let anything get in my way!

Goal: Lose 7 more lbs by January 1, 2014. That exactly 4 weeks from today. I can do it!!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I had been doing great but then my son and I got sick and I made some poor choices sooooo I gained back the weight I lost a few weeks ago and am at square one. Oh well! I am back on it today and will continue trekking along!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

I have set a new goal for myself. I want to go from 236.4 to 222 (220 if I can) by Halloween. I have a costume I am working on and want to look my best in it. Its almost exactly 7 weeks away so that is about 2 lbs a week. Totally doable. Here is the general plan:

Gym 3-5 days a week

Walking/jogging @ the local park 3-5 days a week

As for my diet, I have always worked best while counting my calories, fat, and carbs so we are going to try it again.

Daily Calories: 1380-1730
Daily Fat: 31-67
Daily Carbs: 155-281

All the diet stats are per SP's suggestion.

So here goes nothin'!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

My name is Nicole. I am 30 years old and 242 lbs. A friend of mine and I have started a website www.fatgirlsonamission.com where we blog about our weight loss journey. I am just needing a little extra assistance so I thought I would sign up for SP again and give it a try. So here is goes!
