What's in a weight/number anyway??
Wednesday, June 05, 2013
So as I was noting from my last blog, and other previous ones, I've had a real hard time getting motivated. I decided to join a diet bet in order to get some extra motivation. I mean, I can't afford to lose money!! LOL!
Honestly I don't know how fully I support diet bet in a healthy sense. It encourages you to lose 4% of your weight in 28 days. To me that's honestly a lot! And not an easy task on a realistic scale. Some months I was lucky to lose five pounds. I'm a lot heavier than before so I knew it would be easy to do a weight loss jump start and I just needed a kick in my own pants. It has the potential to encourage some unhealthy behavior. I know some may disagree and I certainly don't want to discourage participation if its important and I myself am participating. I certainly am curious about other's opinions on this too.
So moving on, I don't know if I've read too many body building posts but I'm beginning to think that maybe this goal weight thing isn't as cracked up as I've made it out to be. There are some great bodies out there and many differing weights too. I personally know a couple women who are my height and very slender and muscular, weighing in at 170, 175 pounds.
I'm not sure its in my genetic make-up to have a muscular bod but I am thinking about changing my weight tracker to a size tracker. What do you think?? My goal would be a size 8. When I hit 155 over ten years ago, I was a 10 and about to squeeze into 8's. I saw one girl today who is a size 6 at 170 and she's also my height. I certainly would not mind being a size 6. I don't know if I could get to a 6. I've never been in a 6 but I would certainly love to consider it. LOL!
I need to be my own motivator now!
