All righty, I know I've said this before and meant it, but this time I'm actually going to do it! I'm back on board for weight loss! I've lost 15-20 pounds since April 2008, but most of that work was finished nearly a year ago, and I've just been maintaining since then. And I'm relatively happy with where I am. That's been the problem. I'm very happy with what I've accomplished and am proud of myself. But I've still got a bit of work left to do. And what I've re-realized over the past few weeks is that that work will actually require... work. Duh! But really, for the past few months I've been thinking about wanting to lose some more weight and kind of toyed around with the idea, but I haven't been willing to make the changes in my life that it will actually require. No more!
So today's my new start date, and I know I'll have good days and bad days, but my hope is that the good will outnumber the bad. That's my goal. Motivation's not my strong point, especially as I have yet to find some exercise that I really enjoy while at the same time I really enjoy dessert way too much... Small daily goals that I'll be tracking on paper instead of online. Makes it more real to me that way.
Start weight today: 180
Goal weight for Sunday: 178
Now that's going to require some real work, especially watching my calories and upping my water intake, but I CAN DO IT!!!
