Being Accountable To My Spark Friends And Hubby

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I have been slipping up again and think and feel this would be a good time to look again at my goals and write them down. I need to break them down not just say I want to lose 30 more pounds. I have lost 30 pounds and need to get back on track and do the things that were working before.

What I hope to achieve: I want to lose and keep off 30 more pounds. I want to be 140 pounds by this time next year. What I will do is eat no more unhealthy restaurant meals. I will make healthy choices on what I eat and eat my meals at home. I am going to stay in my Weight Watchers point range for the day eating more vegetables and fruit to help me. I will not buy unhealthy snacks for my hubby and me.

M goal is to fit in to size 9 pants. My mother said I never would be able to. Well I can fit into size 10 now and I never thought when I was wearing size 20 that I would ever be able to do this. I believe in myself and know I can do what I sat out to do. I am proud of what I have done and now what to be proud of myself in a size 9.

I want to be down 30 pounds by losing one pound a week. I will do this by eating healthier and not eating restaurant foods and unhealthy snacks. I know some times my weight loss will slow down and even stop as my body adjusts but I will keep plugging alone and get back to losing again.

Be committed-Do what it takes-You will have what you want

    Sounds like you've made a strong committment. I don't think you need to give up restaurant meals completely, just go to places with healthy options...when you know you can stick to them. My husband and I go out once a week to eat. I enjoy the break. And I do my research ahead of time to decide what I will eat, how much, what substitutions I'll make, etc. Sometimes I don't even have to crack open the menu and be tempted by what's there.

I recommitted myself a couple of weeks ago. I'm doing well and moving in the right direction. I know you will too!
