I have gone through many weight hurdles in my life and I need to start fresh so I can achieve my goals, and I am making smaller goals for myself instead of huge leaps, instead of 3 pounds a week I am settling with .8 pounds a week, and the days I go over are just bonuses! (good bonuses, at that). I have done a lot of thorough planning over the summer and came to the conclusion that I have the choice to be fat or fit and I am choosing the latter. I love clothes, I love being active, and I love hanging out with friends doing fun exhilarating activities, but I ALWAYS stop myself from buying what I want, wearing that awesome bathing suit or tight fitting sweater I didn't look good in, or even going on group adventures because of the way I look and feel. I am SO incredibly sick of being this way and I have officially put my foot down. Its the first time in a LONG time that I feel the energy and finesse inside myself to accomplish the task set at hand. I have the surroundings and the ability to do well, and time is not something I have to fear, so with all of that in mind I will be setting short small simple goals for myself and reward myself along the way. I currently weigh 232 pounds, a month ago I weighed 242 pounds, my goal for the rest of the year is to lose 7 more pounds to reach my goal at my place of work for the group I am a part of, I don't want to disappoint the other team members, or throw them off the winning streak we are currently in :) I am going to start participating in more group activities to gain more confidence in myself and maybe even lose more weight :)
Once I lose my last 7 pounds of the year I will reward myself with a new Wii fitness game to jump into the new year with. The goal for our team is to lose 206 pounds all together, once we accomplish that goal many of us will continue on independently and hopefully make a new team and new goal for the next year :)
Once I reach end of the year goal I will weigh 225 pounds, I am looking to lose about 25 pounds next year (small increments are much easier to deal with than stating I will lose 50 or 80 pounds in that year) I think 2014 will be the year of "less is more" when talking about weight loss, I feel I will be able to manage my fall backs easier, and I wont be so hard on myself. I am getting married in June of 2015 and would like to look great for it, and with this new plan I think I can start feeling better about myself, my body, my life, and the "big day". I encourage everyone out there that is having a hard time losing the pounds to reevaluate there current plan, and to educate themselves on healthy weight loss and nutrition. It is such a important part of our life and life is to short to be miserable!
