Preparation is key
Friday, June 25, 2010
that is my motto for my first day being serious.Firstly doing a grocery shopping list then going to buy a food scale to accurately weigh my food.thereafter i will assemble my dumb bells, jump rope takkies and work out gear every evening so I dont have excuses not to exercise.next is teaching my self how to log in the foods i eat everyday.hopefully it can be done.i will weigh in once a week.Starting weight 230lbs ,oh i am buying a journal to record all the things i eat and exercises i do and also blog blog blog once or twice a week.my ticker shows me at 187lbs i was once at that point but for some reason I lost the plot and gained all of it back.The story of my life.My goal weight for now is 187lbs.no more excuses, no more delaying tactics, I have set myself mini goals of 5lbs each.That way i will not be daunted by the amount of weight I need to lose.I am going to turn thirty come 29th July 2011.So I have to start it with a bang.I always tell people that I am 40 and they belive me mostly cause my weight makes me look like I am forty.So I am tired of looking older than I really am and for the love of God I am going to do right by myself.My hubby sometimes enables me to stay fat by discouraging me when I want to exercise and that is really one of the things that get me down.He will state in a matter of fact way that I am fat yet prevent me from doing something about it.One lady friend of mine says that family and friends sometimes can make or break you.True that.Apparently family and friends fear that you will succeed and it would make them seem and look inadequate in whatever goals they need to achieve in their lives be it weight related or not.However I can not hide behind the fact that it is family that is putting me down I have to show my committment first so that they can see that I am serious and steadfast.Then maybe they can learn to support my efforts.I also have friends who are comfortable being my friends only on the basis that they can compare themselves to me to make them feel better about themselves.I have cut them out of my life. I dont need such people in my life.So I am going to be concentarting on me and what I can do for me and as long as I love me enough I can achieve anything. My challenge lies not in getting on track , but on staying on track .
