All right I cant do this anymore!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

This is the E-mail I sent my best friend Fruityful last night ... the only thing different is instead of starting Sunday I started first thing today!!! emoticon

My all or nothing mentality is not allowing me to make small choices!
I've got to start doing this 100 % ...I'm going to spend this week preparing myself (not binging)

This Sunday is my Spark Anniversary exactly 6 years ago..I was 260 pounds..I came across Spark looking for help. A lot has happened in the last 6 years good and bad but, what I do know is that the 10 months that I was losing those 100 pounds I was the happiest I have ever been...busy but, happy!

I am now 210 pounds and my goal is still 80 pounds away so starting this Sunday I am 100% on track with Water, Exercise, Food (including tracking) ect.....

I WILL be to my goal by August 24th

Just typing this out stressed me out but, you know if I want to reach my goals I need to be willing to put in the work so I guess my house is going to just have to look like crap for a while better it than me!!!

So I'm not tracking or counting my calories yet...I'm just making smarter choices and eating smaller portions ..doing my exercise and drinking my water.

  Kudoos and congrats to you . . . that is mighty sane and can be good way to get the ball rolling.

I dropped 12-15 pounds earlier this year doing exactly the same . . . except I had NOT at that time plugged into an exercise / conditioning program!

What ever works for you, is the program for you .

    You are wise! You will keep the weight off for the long duration. I am doing that as well!

I need to add some goals in here to keep me on track!

Short Term:

This Friday night....My daughters baptism ...I know I cant lose a lot by then but, at least I will feel good.

November 16th - 10 years ago my husband asked me to marry him...I have a secret date planned at the Melting Pot where he asked me. =)

March / April - Our daughter is turning 21 .. we are taking her to Vegas

May - Our 10 year anniversary

Long Term:

June - Our son is graduating from High School - In Iowa
( I would love to look HOT that day )

Not sure exactly when yet but, I'm thinking October 2013 - Our 10 year anniversary cruise to the Virgin Islands.

I am shooting for 2 pounds a week! Goal 129.0 Pounds

Time to kick it into full gear!

Sunday, August 26, 2012

I'm going to use the next 10 days to prepare myself for being on track! So that Wednesday morning the 5th I will be 100% ready to go.

Here's my plan:

Go from 205-129 in 38 weeks

I'm going to do this by drinking 14-8 Ounce glasses of water everyday
I'm going to walk 5 Miles a day ( I'm planning to walk 2.5 in the morning and 2.5 in the evening ...hopefully this will keep me from eating bad.)
I'm going to do my official weigh in's every Saturday Morning and I'm going to post monthly pics of my progress
I'm going to keep my calories between 1200-1550

The only thing I am still battling in my head is that on Saturday nights I like to come home from work, hang out, have drinks and not worry about what I stuff in my mouth...and I'm afraid that I will undo my weight loss progress if I do that but, if I don't I can wind down from all my stress =(

For the last 2.5 years I have tried to lose weight slow so I could figure out how to maintain it but, now I'm ready to be at my goal...I really want to be there by the end of next May....I know I will have to work at it for the rest of my life but, I want to reach it by It's time to put my Butt in high gear and get going. I've lost 51 pounds in the last 2.5 years and kept of 34 of them so I know if I kept it up for another 5-7 years I could get there eventually. =)

It's time to get into that all mentality and get it done!
