Today 8/23 is nearly one year since I have gotten super serious with this weight loss thing . I say serious, because I have tried all my life to lose weight all without a plan. And all without success. For the past year I have been active on Sparkepeople tracking and interacting. I also increased my exercise amount and intensity and tracked that as well.
So after a year, while I have not gotten to my original weight loss goal of losing 100 pounds, I have made a lot of progress. I have lost 25 pounds, I have lost several clothes sizes, I feel great. I have gotten so strong from weight lifting and my blood work has improved. I have gained so much knowledge about healthy foods, weight loss strategies, exercise techniques and more from Sparkpeople. The list could go on and on!
So today I have re-evaluated my weight loss goals and am ready to begin losing weight again and to recommit to getting super serious.
By the end of November, I will have lost 30 pounds. That is 10 pounds in September, 10 pounds in October and 10 pounds November. It is reasonable to lose 10 pounds per month!
I will reach these goals by religiously tracking my food on Sparkpeople. I will increase the intensity level of my exercise and really watch my zones, trying to stay in zone 2or3.
I will not let negativity or negative people interfere with where I want to go...healthy, fit, and thinner!
I will do all I can NOT TO EAT OUT OF EMOTION ......this has been a lifelong struggle and I really need to find a way to deal with emotions other than with food.
I am going to do this and I can't wait!
