New year=new ME!

Monday, January 07, 2013

2013 is off to a GREAT start! I'm so excited about starting this year out right and meeting my goals! This is the year!

So, here's the facts:
I lost over 25 pounds between July 2011 and Dec. 2011.
I maintained that weight, but did not lose more, for a year.
I am still at least 40 pounds overweight.
I am about size 12, sometimes 14.

This year I have a goal of losing that 40 pounds and getting down to 145! When I hit that, we will see if that's the right weight for me, or if I would be healthier if I lost more. My goal is to be fit and healthy--healthy weight, healthy cholesterol, healthy diet, everything! My plan is to eat healthy, with as many fruits/vegetables/healthy proteins as possible. I also have a goal of walking/running at least 10 miles per week. I'm excited to get to the end of the year and see that I've logged well over 500 miles! That's 100 miles farther than walking the north-south length of the entire state of Minnesota! Sounds fun to me!

So this year represents a new start and a continuation. I'm excited to be on this journey!

This is me--Dec. 14, 2012. Let's see how this picture changes over the next year!

    If you have the time, I encourage you to join our monthly mileage challenge. You set your own goals. I know it has helped me stay on track and also made me push a little harder than I might have on my own. You can find it under the Team Challenges forums at the SparkMinneapolis / St.Paul Team.

    I don't know if you'vce done this, but I think it's important to set up goals and have an eating plan if you want to lose weight. Like I'm going to track my food and only eat X amount of calories per day. Or something like that. For me it is low carbs. I mainly count carbs. But I keep track of my food on the food tracker, and still see the calorie count I'm getting per day (according to them). It's not often real precise, but you get a general idea. I lost 55 lbs between April and the end of November. Then really stalled for the holiday season. Now I'm trying to lose 13 lbs in 13 weeks.
    I've got about 26 more to reach my goal. Best of luck to you, Glenn
