well, here i am, one week away to where i "goaled" myself to be 180 lbs. unless i lose 5 pounds this coming week, i won't make it. first, i am terrified of not making it to my first goal. and it was reasonable, i haven't been working out before this, and i was eating anything and everything in site... so, working out and eating right... 10 pounds for the first month is NOT unreasonable!
i know that i shouldn't be thinking of failure, but i am worried, that i won't make it. so, my questions are...
1. do i adjust my goal now, wait until next week?
2. was i not working heard enough? seriously, i have been exercising consistantly for this month, and staying pretty much in my goal ranges (except for a couple of days).
3. is it really THAT much harder to lose weight at 45 than it is at 40???
4. what can i do to get me losing weight? yes, i know, i need to judge myself in other ways, not only to the scale. BUT 10 pounds should show up in the other measurable areas, and although i see a difference, it is only very small changes.
i need to start dropping the weight, so i can be ready for june (165 lbs), when i am supposed to go in a trip with my sister..., and by september (145 lbs), i want to feel and look better for my birthday, and october (maintaining 145 lbs) is my hubby and mine anniversary, so i want to be happy about myself, and be in a better mindset.
any suggestions would be very welcomed... and appreciated!
