BLC22 Starting Goals

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

My overall weight loss goal for this challenge is 18lbs for a new weight of 136. I will have to work hard to achieve this goal since this is losing 1.5lbs per week and looking back over my previous times of losing weight I only lost an average of .8lbs per week.

I plan to track my food and work on eating healthier. I typically don't eat very healthy. I only like a few fruits and vegetables and they are not my 1st choice when picking out something to eat. I need to work on better habits. I may also need to adjust my calorie range. I need to find a healthy range for breastfeeding that still allows me to lose a little weight, but not my milk supply.

I have signed up for the 12 week streak, so I will exercise a minimum of 20 minutes a day 5 times a week. I will do both aerobic & strength training.

My staring weight was 154.2, below is my weight loss goal for each week.

6/12/2013 1 152.7
6/19/2013 2 151.2
6/26/2013 3 149.7
7/3/2013 4 148.2
7/10/2013 5 146.7
7/17/2013 6 145.2
7/24/2013 7 143.7
7/31/2013 8 142.2
8/7/2013 9 140.7
8/14/2013 10 139.2
8/21/2013 11 137.7

    So where are you right now? Great plan! I always eat more protein for my b/f. Which works for me.

    Eating more freggies should help out a lot!! Have you ever tried smoothies? It's a good way to get some freggies in, even if you don't like eating them. Or maybe even slip some small amounts in pasta sauce?

    Wishing you much success this round !!
