Slow and Steady Wins the Race?

Monday, May 20, 2013

I started working out on April 6th 2013. Finally hit the end of my unhealthy rope. Time to take control of my health. I was feeling so unattractive and self-loathing. Not good.

A friend suggested this website and I joined on April 28th. I have only lost 3 pounds, 2 inches in the waist, 1 inch in the arm and 1 inch around the hips, but I will take it.

Working out 5 days a week for an hour before work in the morning doing mostly Tae-Bo and light strength training with weights. I am only just now starting to see a difference in myself. I keep telling myself slow and steady wins the race. I am trying very hard to focus on that I am a) being more active then ever before and b) am eating well-balanced. It isn't easy to do that all the time as I want my clothes to fit better RIGHT NOW, but I will keep reminding myself it isn't for vain reasons I am doing this, it is for health reasons.

My goal is to go from 230 to 170 by 11/23/2013.
At 227 today and who knows what will happen. I will just keep trying my best. emoticon

    Good luck! Take it one day at a time. Make small goals such as 5 LBS a month.It is easier that way.It tends to be overwhelming if you think I need to lose 60 LBs by November.You can do it! emoticon
