so it's january..almost 1 year since my reason for starting this happened...
(my friend died of an infection! and she was the same age as me...shook me up..i wanna live to see my boys grow and to be here for my husband who i love alot )
It's been a good almost year...i started at 256lbs and by my goal date hit 199lbs(lost 57lbs and i think it's 23 inches)..
Then my 2 birthday parties came, plus a drinking party, then my oldest sons party then halloween and my sister in laws party...up the weight crawled to 205-206lbs...not too bad but with the heckness of on going life and the fun of rainy and horrible then cold weather we get here in nova scotia...well exercising went out the window...then christmas and a birthday party every 5-10 for december kicked in...sigh...
i did well but the 2 weeks that included christmas and new year's eve...not so good..
so, january 2012
thighs- 26 inches
chest- 38.5 inches
arms 13.5 inches
that's up on everything except my chest and arms..chest is same and arms are actually down .5 inches!
so i've gained 12 lbs since my birthday..not pleased there but as always i have a plan...lol
1) Back to regular eating plans(fruits/veggies for snacks and extras for meals, no evening snacking)
2) WATER!!! (mostly able to still do this anyways)
3) exercise bike for 1 hour a day
4) walking(i'd like to be able to do 5 km a day but weather totatlly can mess that up)
5) Bed by 11pm and up by 7 am with no NAPS(i know, bad huh?somehow i've started napping before lunch and it's not good..)
SO, almost a year for me here on sparkspeople...i wanna get back to 206 by feb.4(my mark of one year) if i can(only 7 lbs and some of that may be water of all the salty stuff i've had lately)..
this year has been hard in someways and more challenging in others...i've lost several friends this year, and come to the realization that you are alone in things that you must do...we can get support but ultimately it's you who has to actually do the work...
One day, one hour, one minute, one second at a time...you can only fail if you stop trying...
