I have a plan, finally! I am using the Spark nutrition tracker and have developed some MEALS that I made into groupings so it will be easy to track and assign those things I eat on a either routine or rotating basis. My calorie range given my size and exercise level is 2300-2600.
I am going to walk at least 2 times each week, in addition to my weightlifting. If it is too hot outside, I have a Leslie Sansone DVD with the 1 mile, 2 mile, 3 mile and 4 mile workouts. I also have some other cardio DVDs and there is always SP's online 10 minute videos.
I am going to start swimming again. At least 2 times a week, even if it is simply before/after my job at the pool on the weekends.
I am going to work to blog more and to check in on my friends here more. I was most successful when I stopped my pity party and started celebrating all my friends here and all my successes.
I won't go back to my max weight ever.
I am going to get back to my max loss soon! And I am going to continue on. I am going to visualize and try to remember what if felt like when I was a nice 160 or 170 lbs.
I am going to hope that you will walk with me on this journey. That we can walk beside each other as friends, that sometimes I will walk behind you to "push" you along, sometimes you will be behind me kicking by butt! Please brag to me about what you have accomplished! I want to share in your joys and your trials too! This is the beauty of SP. Friends are friends in this world. There are things here we can share that we would never share with anyone in our real worlds. We are usually non-judgmental but criticize in a positive helpful manner.
Yeah, that's what I want. Along with my desire to lose another 50 pounds and then 40 pounds and then another 30 and then another 25 and then another 15 and then another 10 and then another 10 and then another 10 and then another 5 those last 5! And along the way, I am going to learn to love myself for who I am. Underneath all this obesity, there is a pretty great person. Not perfect. But pretty great. And I have to face that truth. I am me, whether at 170 lbs or 370 lbs. But, at less than 370 lbs. I get to be me and indulge myself in those things I have been prevented from or keeping myself from doing.
