Well time to look back and July was a busy month and I had had a great June really breaking through the plateau I had been on for just months. I lost 4.4 lbs for the month and that was ok, I of course would have loved more.
To help me I have had a few people tell me that they can see the weight loss and boy that helps, after so long all I can see is this fat lady with a big belly. I would like to see who I am right now, but I cant yet. Right now I am just starting to realize what this last push of weight loss has meant to me. I am at my lowest weight as an adult, I can get into and wear size 18 jeans....I mean for me that beyond what I ever dreamed. I am finally starting see the belly get some smaller, slowly but its happening. My DH just loves when I try on something and its fits even nicer when before. It makes me smile at myself something and feel that you know I am looking good.
So for August, I am going to stick with the Digest Diet. I do need to be careful not to stay at the lowest end but eat at the mid range with a week at the higher so that my body will not feel deprived and hang on to weight. This program is really good, you are not eating, sugar, much salt, white flour products. Healthy whole grain, healthy fats and honey, lots of fresh veggies and lean meats. I like the food and can tailor it to me and my likes and dislikes.
Keep with Curves 3x a week and one zumba. I am also doing the exercises for the digest diet too and walking more. This all keeps me busy, but its not bad.
The importance this month is keep balanced with my internet time and use it wisely. I need to keep to a better schedule. I need to make time to spend with my fuzzies and my DH, who will be retiring in just under 2 months. I am looking forward to those changes and maybe some trepidation too.
Its so necessary to keep motivated and on track.
My goal for August is to lose another 4-5 lbs with a goal of getting to the 180s by my bday in Oct even better to 180 solid by then. The long term is to healthy weight 135-140 by Oct 2013!!!!!!!
I know I can do this, it will just take some time and more determination. I have that.
The more I learn the better prepared I will be when I comes time to maintain for the rest of my life and although that is long time, I want to live and be happy and healthy,
Spark people is helping me with all the above and so are you my friends to encourage me to keep going and knowing I am not alone.
SO LETS HEAD ON TO AUGUST AND KNOWING WE CAN DO WHAT WE NEED TO GET TO OUR DREAMS!!!!!!
Hugs and smiles
