New and Improved Me.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I have had a major motivation problem lately. A week ago, I tried on the dress I was supposed to wear to a wedding in August and it only zips halfway up! I have exactly two months until this wedding, so today I went for a walk and ate an Atkins Advantage bar for breakfast. I am going to eat a healthy lunch of salad with pork chops and a light dinner at work. I am going to go back to a semi-Atkins state of watching my carbs, but not dieting per se.

I am making a lifestyle change. Saying NO to alcohol on the weekends, NO to mindless eating, and NO to the endless excuses.

Today I weighed in at 153.5 lb. The most I have ever weighed in my life, again! I am maxing out on my weight. I am short, so the 15 pounds I gained this past month or so have really made a bad look for me. It is all fat, and my clothes don't fit. Like, none of them fit, even the bigger ones I'd previously gotten. I am so ready for change, it is not even funny.

So wish me luck! I am going to eat only when I am hungry, exercise, and I hope to fit into that dress by August.

Starting weight: 153.5
Goal weight for August 5th: 138.5

I think 15 pounds is a reasonable amount to aim for in two months.

    You can do this! Even if you don't get the 15, I bet if you get close the dress will look great! I have never lost 15 in 2 months but I am a SLOOOOW loser! Sounds like you're taking good steps. PS I LOLed a little at your 153 only because that would be a dream weight for me! But I know it's different for everyone and it's all about how you FEEL. emoticon emoticon
