I started a three week weight loss plan with every day plotted out, and daily weigh-ins. I think that is the only way to keep myself on track. So far there have been successes as well as failures, but I'm fairly positive about it.
The cool idea that I am excited about was something I heard someone else talking about on a forum. The idea was to get a jar, title it 'gym' (or whatever goal you want to keep track of) and each time you go to the gym (or accomplish your designated task) you put $1 in the jar towards some purchase you would like to make.
For myself, I'm stuck between a Kindle and a video game I want. I'm thinking I will go with the Kindle (200 gym visits omg) because I read on my phone/laptop waaay too much for school and I can tell the impact on my eyes.
I'm just excited to see this jar as a physical representation of success. And who doesn't love seeing a jar full of money??
I started my weight loss plan on the 21st, so its been about a week exactly. I've lost 1.5 lbs but my goal was to lose 2lbs. Tonight I will be doing Zumba/yoga so that will be good.
I'm really proud of my calorie tracking. It has been very helpful so far and has helped me a lot to get back in the zone of appropriate eating for my size and activity level.
A failure has been, of course, eating a few things I should not have, and losing resolution. But overall I have kept going and the scale looks good.
For the rest of this week goal is gym 2 more times, eat more veggies, and get my jar set up!
