One of my mini-halfway goals was 25 pounds by Christmas. I am 0.2 pounds away from my mini-halfway goal. If I hadn't had my 0.2 gain last week, I would probably already be at my goal, but it's ok. Next week I will definitely be there and than on my way to my actual goal of 50 pounds lost by Christmas. I am going to have to kick some ass to reach it, but it's not impossible. And even if I don't make it completely, I'll at least be reasonably be close.
When I firsted started Sparkpeople, my goal was 50 pounds by my birthday in March, but when I saw the weight coming off, I realized, I could move my goal up a bit. I can maybe reach 75 pounds by my birthday, as long as I keep at it and stick to it.
It's not impossible!!! I keep telling myself that. I thought losing any weight was impossible, at least for me. I thought it would be really hard and would have to cut out everything I love, but I don't! I can still eat anything and everything, it just has to be in proportion. I kind of blew it the other night but it's only one day out of many days of doing really well, so it's not going to hurt in the long run.
Nothing is impossible. If you believe you can do it, than you can. Nothing will get in your way, unless you let it. We have complete control over our lives and what we do with our lives. We have all the control in the world of what we put in our mouths....unless you have someone who ties you down and shoves food into your mouth with a gun pointed at your head, threatening to kill you if you don't swallow. How many of us really have that happening? I highly doubt any of us do, so we have no excuse. As long as we are determined and committed, we can do this. Tell yourself, "Nothing is impossible" and it won't be.

My experiment didn't really work. I lost 1.8 pounds this week. I did absolutely no walking this week and only 2 days of strength training and ate way over my calorie range 3 days this week and I still lost weight. Now, I know what you are thinking: "Why is she complaining?" I wanted to show a weight gain or nothing this week to show myself how important walking is to my weight loss. Yes, I am happy I still lost weight, but now I am going to have that thought in my head that I can not walk and still lose weight. I don't want that. That is going to be just another obstacle to overcome.
I am getting off my period, so my mood is leveling out. So now I am going to be able to think normal and get back into my routine. I want to lose at least 3 pounds a week for the rest of the year. I want to get down to 250 or below by new years. Even if I don't, any weight loss will be good, but that is my goal.
So here is to another week of exercising and eating healthy!

This week I am kind of experimenting with my weight loss plan. I am trying to eat right and only doing strength training. I want to show myself how important it is to at least walk 5 times a week, to hopefully keep my committment and motivation up. This week, I started out doing pretty bad. I hadn't exercised in a few days, other than strength training and two days, I ate over my calorie limit. I've been having a hard time in my personal/work life, that has been taking a lot of my attention. But hopefully the lack of weight loss, weight gain, or neither will push me to keep going, no matter what is going on.
So I will update you on Wednesday on how my little experiment works out. Wish me luck!

I'm a little late this week in posting my weigh in, but better late than never. :)
Well I got on the scale and it read 279.6. I was so happy. That number is still extrmemly high but it is 21 pounds less than what I was. I had my fingers crossed this whole week that I would lose at least 2.5 pounds so I could be at 20 pounds lost AND I DID IT. I actually lost 3.4 pounds this week.
It feels great to finally be out of the 280's. I know it is only by a little bit but every little bit counts. So we'll see what happens next week. Since I am already two days into this week, I can tell you this...it's not looking too well.
