January Goals to work towards a new me

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

After a stressful December I am ready to hop back on the weight loss and healthy lifestyle horse to work towards a new me.

First and formost I know that the weight didn't come on over night so I also know that it won't come off over night either.

Secondly I am going to work towards 5% weight loss goals at a time. Instead of trying to lose it all at once and working out at the gym emoticon 4 hours every day.

Thirdly, Drink half my weight in water everyday. emoticon Instead of grabbing a soft drink out of the vending machine I will take my own flavored water or club soda with me to drink.

Fourth, Stay within my calorie emoticon range everyday. Even if I do go over one day, knowing that the next day is a brand new day to get back on the horse.

Fifth, Stay focused and positive by just hanging around people who are lifting and motivated. Who have the same goals as I to lose weight and make some emoticonfriends in the meantime.

I hope by the end of January I will be down at least 2% of the weight loss. emoticon

I hope that who ever reads this has a Happy New Year and good luck with your weight loss journey.

    Sharon, thanks for sharing your goals! emoticon Working towards 5% of weight loss at a time is a great idea. I remember reading someone's blog and the caption said, " I lost 10 pounds! 7 times!" She concentrated losing only 10 pounds. After that, she concentrated again on only losing 10 more pounds, for 7 times. Before she knew it, she lost 70 pounds reaching her ultimate goal. Blessings on your journey. Rachel emoticon

    This is great, well-thought out and more than "do-able". I'm proud of you.
