Ending on a good note!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

January started off with a bang. I had some slips along the way, but my current weight is a number I can deal with. I made a promise that I will start with a number and end with a new number, and this promise is working well. On 1/6/13 I weighed -178.0 and I saw that number again last week. I felt defeated, but I wasnít defeated at all. My ending number for this month was a shocking surprise, and Iím blessed to be 174.8. Thatís 3.2 pounds down. I know itís not a record breaking 5 or 10, but what I got is the sure deal. It will hold. It will last there will be more losses on this journey. Iím not done yet and I have more to do.

So, starting February 1st I will begin my self-love journey and Iím looking forward to that journey. I do need to spend more time with me. Loving me and understanding that I am more than this weight and all the other stressors that had lead me here. Thatís a part of my past now, and I canít re-harvest the past. Iím planting a new crop and this crop is going to bring forth a harvest full of blessings.

Iím blessed to be 3 pounds down, and I am looking forward to seeing some more weight loss. Now, I have set a high goal to reach for myself, and you know what. I believe and have faith in reaching that goal. My goal is to be 165 on February the 21st, but if I donít make it. I promise you Iíll end the month standing at the door. I got a lot of work to do. And Iím setting the stage to what I need to be doing ďrightĒ in my life for the next 28 days.

1-I will have smoothies everyday for 28 days 32ozs. Those 32 daily ounces has helped me bounce back from my weakest point, so I will keep those going daily. 3 to 4 servings of fruits and veggies.
2-I will workout 3 days a week. My workout will only be strength training related, and Iíll figure the cardio as I go. I work towards my goals.
3-I will also be working on my ďplansĒ. I have so many plans and I have a photo shoot to make plans for as well. My overall goal is to be at my half way mark before March-madness begins. My half way mark is 165 and I do plan on getting there. Itís all about finding out what works for you. What works for me is a busy lifestyle, eating raw and watching the fats.

I donít watch them as close as I should, but what I do watch helps add up these numbers. Iíve told you all. Iím not going to live in the medical chart system of what weight loss is anymore.

170 is progressing
165 is progressing still
150 is making progress
140-135 is success!

Iím not looking at.
These charts like I did once before.
What the idea weight for me should be. Who knows what my ideal weight is. I know about my body make up, and these charts provides nothing helpful or promising for me.
And Iím doing this according to my choosing and not the doctors.

I know whatís best for me, and super skinny isnít whatís best for me.
I plan to look at my overall health and how I feel.
And dropping the rest of these 36 pounds is what I need the most, and then if there is room for more, then Iíll let my body make that choice.

Thanks for reading my blog.
Peace and blessings!

    Your present weight, and goal weight are almost bang on mine! I'm looking forward to watching your progress. Not comparing, because it's neither a race nor a competition, but keeping an eye on! Love your idea about the smoothies, you have motivated me to get some fruit and start for lunch. If you want to start with some gentle cardio, look up Jane Fonda on youtube, and do her walkout video, first the beginners, progressing to the advanced when you feel ready. Apart from the fact that the damn woman doesn't appear to sweat, doesn't stop talking to draw breath, and is obviously tons fitter than me even if she is 74, is neither here nor there! They're good videos.
