I just wrote a long blog and inadvertently deleted it. So, to recap:
Today marks 51 days until the big wedding. My husband and I are going out to Iowa for his brother's wedding. I have a dress to squeeze into, which only zips halfway up as of right now. Hopefully, I can spend the next 51 days sticking to my diet and losing some of this weight I have put on. At this point, I'd be happy to be at 140 lb. I am 14.5 lb away from that goal. So, for the next 51 days, I am incorporating ViSalus drink mix into my diet and sticking to my ranges.
I just read a great blog by JENSFITJOURNEY, and it has motivated me to do a daily blog on my day, including diet and exercise. I start tomorrow morning, blogging about what I did today. I am not going to blog on the same day anymore, because knowing myself, anything could happen between now and midnight.
I am currently a size 8/10 with the 8 being really damn tight, so probably just say a size 10 dress. I was like 136 or so when I fit into the size 6 dress that I need to wear. I know 2 dress sizes in 51 days is a lot, but I am striving for it with all my might!
GOAL 1: Walk every day, even if it is just for 10 minutes. I plan of getting up earlier than I did today, and exercising before it gets too hot. I only did 15 minutes today, or 3/4 mile. Every step counts! Plus, I am on my feet for my work.
GOAL 2: Drink lots of water!
GOAL 3: Weigh in only 1x per week, on Wednesday. Post weight in here.
GOAL 4: NO drinking, period. It isn't worth it! It is half the reason I am where I am at.
GOAL 5: Drink at least 1 ViSalus shake daily, as one of my meals. I like it for breakfast, preferably. I want to up that to two shakes per day and 1 reasonable meal, but I am flexible here due to previous issues with consistency.
My current weight: 154.5 lb. as of this morning.
My goal weight: 125 lb.
Pounds to lose: 29.5 lb.
For the next 51 days:
Goal weight loss: 15-20 lb.
Wish me luck. I will check in tomorrow with the results of
