I haven't weighed myself lately but last check I was down 11 lbs...that would mean I only have 19 lbs left before I hit the 30 lbs mark....so why do I keep thinking I need to lose 30 lbs instead of just the 19? If someone were to ask me how much weight I wanted to lose, I would say 30 lbs but the right answer is 19 lbs...
I think part of it(ok, all of it) is mental...30 lbs seems to be a harder goal to reach and I can really use it to do some mental sabotage...I could eat that fast food and say "well I still have to lose 30 lbs so it won't kill me to eat this"...but if I consciously stated "I only have 19 lbs to lose so I need to stay on track", then that would remove any excuse for me to eat what I want...
(I know my weight loss ticker states I want to lose 35 lbs but I had to put that in there so it would calculate my calories, etc. by the date I put in the system...dang SP with their realistic goals..lol)
Once I hit the 30 lbs. I may still need to lose a few more pounds but I need to get to my first goal before I set any other ones...right now I need to get my mind right to knock out these last 19 lbs....Laila Ali is my picture for today because she exemplifies femininity and strength....she is a great role model for all women to get and stay in shape...she isn't rail thin nor is she overly muscular....I think she is a great balance of the health, strength, beauty and being fit!!!
That is the balance I am striving for..not to mention she can kick ass!!!!
