If I'm going to weigh 210 by Oct. 1st I really NEED to watch every piece of food, good/bad, that I put in my mouth. When I found out I was pregnant with Ryan, I weighed 210 lbs. I had Ryan Oct. 1st and weighed 243. Since Ryan, I had another beautiful son but have not been below 210 lbs since the day I found out I was pregnant 5 years ago. I know my mini goals are do-able and probably not pushing myself as much as I should on some.
Long Term ~ My goal is to reach my pre-baby weight from 9 years ago before Mother's Day 2011. (166)
SW - 227.5 (The weight I was when I decided I NEED to do this for me!)
Short Term ~ lose 17.5 by Ryan's 5th birthday (I'll be the weight I was when I found out I was pregnant with him.)
lose 25 lbs. by Thanksgiving
lose 30 lbs. by Christmas
lose 40 lbs. by Valentine's Day
lose 50 lbs. March 28th
lose 60 lbs. by Mother's Day
I will do this, and I will do this for my benefit first and foremost and when if benefits everyone else, that will be the icing on the cake.
I've noticed after taking 10 days and doing NO exercise at all and not being conscious about what was going in my mouth that I feel like crap - slow, sluggish, depressed. I tried to eat yesterday like I should and felt super hungry all day long. I need to start doing what I know how to do and then add to it after the new habit/routine has been formed.
I am super excited about the Christmas challenge I've joined and can't wait to see if I can surpass my goal - - - even if it's only by 1 pound.
NO ONE WILL STOP ME! I AM IN CONTROL OF WHAT GOES IN MY MOUTH AND HOW LONG MY BUTT SITS ON THE COUCH!
