So I've been in this whole weight loss/ life-style change for almost eleven years now and am super thankful for my accomplishments (to date I've lost 157 pounds).
(This is a picture of me at 407 lbs.)
With that being said, this last stretch of hitting my final weight loss goal has been EXTREMELY difficult. At one point in time I was in the 220's, now I'm fighting and struggling like I don't know what to get under 250. I must admit that sometimes I get discouraged and frustrated. And even when I want to give up I REFUSE!!!
What helps to keep me going are the folks who are ALWAYS in my corner. Like my family, friends on SPARK (especially my niece NEWBEIN who resurrected our little Fitlinxx Challenge), my church members and co-workers. PLUS the cute Spring and Summer clothes that are hanging in my closet are a SUPER DUPER source of motivation....LOL!
I know what it takes to get this weight off...I just need to consistently do it...that's where the BIG FIGHT comes in, because to tell the truth sometimes I just don't feel like doing what's good or doing the right thing!!!
Nevertheless, I will continue to FIGHT to...
...drink 64-80 oz. of WATER a day
...drink 16 oz. of GREEN TEA a day
...do 90 mins. of CARDIO at least 5 days a week
...lift WEIGHTS at least 4 days a week
...do 50-100 PUSH UPS a day
...do 100 CRUNCHES on the stability ball a day
...do a CORE RHYTHMS workout everyday
...and the biggest fight of all will be to stay within my CALORIE LIMITS
