I am starting fresh every day. I feel really motivated today to succeed at this weight loss battle. And it is a battle! Weight has been winning, but I am feeling the beginnings of a comeback!
Today, I planned out all the food I am going to eat for the day. I have, thus far, stuck to my plan. Nursing school is a stressor, work is a stressor, but I have a great husband who supports me and a good family network for support. I can do this.
I will be an RN and I WILL reach my goal weight!
My new goal weight: 120 lb. That's right, I am aiming high, but with only 33 pounds to lose, I KNOW I can do it. Some people have lost hundreds. I only have to lose 33. I should consider myself very lucky and do this right now.
I am only going to be this young once, and I better make the most of my metabolism before it gets slow. Plus, I want to have a healthy body to get pregnant and have a baby with. Not for a couple of years, but still. I have a time limit here.
The best outcomes are those with specific goals and specific time frames.
Whitney will... lose this 33 lb. by next year.
Whitney will... lose 10 lb. by October 31st.
Whitney will... stay within the calorie ranges for the next two weeks without splurging due to doing so well.
Whitney will... aim to get more active in the next two weeks, walking at least 90 min per week.
Sounds good, no?
