My main goal for February is to have more energy, be more active, and be under 270 pounds by March 1st. ( It will be -13 pounds)
I plan to do this by
Going to the gym 3 times a week, working out at least 1 hr each workout.
Working out at home once a week at least 20 minutes. ie. Workout videos, Wii, Walk around neighborhood. (Adding more time/days to each week)
Drinking 70+ ounces a water a day.
Eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as healthy snacks while tracking everything I consume, and staying within my calorie range. except for the Cut, and Burn.
Don't eat late in the evening, and add more fruits, and veggies.
Cut & Burn - Cut 100 calories a day off my calories while burning 100 calories a day.
Take my medicine on time daily.
Attend and Stay for my TOPS meeting.
Routinely Blog my Feelings & Activities.

I went to my TOPS meeting on Thursday, and found out that I lost a few ounces. I have always said that you get out of this what you put into it so I wasn't expecting a big loss like last week because I allowed ME to get in my own way. Yes, I can tell you that I have been stressed over my medical problems. However, The bottom line is I could have done better! I chose to use my stress, and every day life problems to keep me from doing more. In return, The scale shows those results.
In the past, I would have used that as an excuses, quit, or threw myself into a 3 or 4 day binge. However, I realized what I did wrong, and what I could have done better. I started the day over with a new attitude. So, I am finally at that place in my life where I can say I am living a new lifestyle change, and not I am on a diet.

Four years ago, I lost 60+ pounds and regained it back the following year. I told myself that it was okay. I could simply lose it again once I decided too. That is when my weight loss journey truly begun. I lost, and gained weight several times over the next few years. Never really losing more than 25 pounds. Honestly, I have probably have had a half of dozen Sparkpeople pages in the process.
In March of 2012, I heard about a weight loss support group called TOPS. I joined the local chapter full of motivation. I lost 14 pounds in a month and like so many others, I allowed myself to get distracted with my every day life. I went from attending my every Thursday's meeting to attending every once in awhile. I went from losing weight routinely to gaining weight. Truthfully, I was not really giving 100%. Then I read a blog where a fellow SP said, "You get out of it, What you put into it." I finally understood the entire concept. If I truly wanted to lose this weight. I had to put forth the energy, and effort.
I AM FAT. Yes, It described me but it doesn't dictate who I am. So, It was time to do something about it. I started a new SP page, and have found some wonderful teams. I started going back to my TOPS meeting. I have lost 9+ pounds in two weeks. I am more active than I've been in ages. I am happier, and healthier. In March, I was 308 pounds. Now I am rocking 285 pounds. My goal is to reach the 270's January 3RD. I have not mastered weight loss. There is still so much more I need to learn. However, I have learned one thing. You get out of it what you put into it. You move, You lose!
