Shared Fitness Tracker
My name is Jamie. For most of my adult life, I’ve gotten away with being fat. I say “gotten away with” because my life hasn’t been hampered much by my weight. I am happily married to a great guy, and I have three healthy & beautiful children. I have relatively high self-esteem, a fantastic career, and have never had any health problems. HOWEVER, I’m in my upper 30’s now and expect that my chubbiness will cause health issues as I get older. Additionally, and I know this sounds vain, but I would really like to LOVE my body and feel good in my clothes.
Ultimately, I want to arrive at a healthier weight that I can maintain for the rest of my life. A “healthy” BMI would put me at 135 lbs, but I will set my initial goal at 150 lbs. I’m not convinced that BMI is a perfect measuring stick for everyone, and I may stop at a higher number if it feels like a sustainable weight for me.
I would like to fit into size 7 jeans.
I want to have more energy in order to set a better, more active example for my kids.
I will focus on weight loss 5% at a time. Upon reaching each 5% goal, I will buy a complete new outfit (even down to shoes and a bag).
I will log everything that goes in my mouth. Even my morning coffee and weekend glasses of wine.
To start, I will commit to 30 minutes of exercise per day, six times per week. I will add 5 minutes every two weeks until I hit 1 hour. Since 1 hour total is all I can truly set aside for exercise, I will increase the intensity as needed.
Every week, I will focus on one small change (i.e. drink more water, take the stairs at work, eat more vegetables, etc.)
Daily, I will record one thought, quote, picture, etc. that motivates me.
