I reset my goals this morning. Due to my myriad of health issues this year, I didn't lose the 60 pounds I wanted to--I lost 19 (as of this morning; I managed to break my plateau...not sure how, but not knocking it). Nineteen pounds is nothing to sneeze at, and admittedly, it's been since June that I lost the weight. However, that's 19 pounds I don't have to account for in my new goal.
I'm setting the 60-pound goal again, by the end of 2013. That's five pounds a month. I'm confident I can do it this time. I know I'm on the right track with my dietary change...I just have to pay a bit more attention to what's going in my mouth. As for the exercise, well, here's hoping I will be healthier in 2013 and will be able to stay healthy. Or at worst, where I am now--because I can move, even if it's in truncated doses. Some activity is better than none.
I'm hopeful that 2013 is the year I get all my health ducks in a row, so to speak, and make the best of what I've been given. I have only one body to work with, and I'm not going to abuse myself anymore. I've made progress since June, admittedly, but I still have a long way to go.
I know I can do this. I expect 2013 to be a good year. 2012 was not a good year, but I can only deal with the present and future, not the past.
