Help, help, help me please! I must be nuts. Certifiably insane. But I'm gonna go for it. The biggest weight loss hurdle for me has been activity. When I'm home, I'm a slug. I don't wanna do anything after I've been working all night and this has negatively impacted home life for my entire family. On top of that, I'm less than a month and a half away from 30 years old.
So... I gave myself a goal. I won't lie- I'm scared of my own ambition here and I'm afraid I can't do it. But another part of me, that tiny part of me that is truly confident says that I can do it because I did it before. You see, I've decided that I want to be below 200 lbs. by the time I hit thirty. Yikes! That means I have approximately a month and a week to lose at least 39 lbs. in a healthy and safe way. Gulp.
I know what this means I need to do. The last time I lost such incredible numbers I was working out 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. The big trick this time will be learning to manage my time well enough to fit that into a week with a full time work schedule because the last time... well, I was unemployed with way too much time on my hands.
I *can* do this, though. I've done the math, so I know I've enough hours in the day and some to spare. Motivating myself will be a challenge, though, so I'm asking you all for help. Nag me, harass me, cheer me on- whatever you can do to keep me moving, I'd appreciate it. In return, I'll be glad to do the same for you.
I refuse to be 30 years old and 200+ lbs.
