I just read Pixie-licious' blog and it was how I felt at the beginning and this part of my journey. I have just forgotten that's how I felt.
I had lost 50 lbs and was down to a size 18, still thick, but not as bad as I was at 256. Well, fast forward through 2 traumatic deaths, and here I sit at 239 having lost some weight. Not a happy camper by any means. I should be at goal weight and maintaining, right?!!?!?
Well, yes, but life got in the way and now I am not. I have to face the facts. And, I am at 239, I am not able to do a full workout, I have high cholesterol, I have diabetes, I have heart disease risk factors....There they are-the whole world can see them and SO CAN I!!!!!!
NEXT, my plan is to start to exercise at least 10 minutes a day at least 5 days a week. If I can do more, I will, if I have to stop at 13 minutes, I will, if I can go on to 30 minutes, I will. This is a game of wills. And, as long as I continue to say, "I will", I can.
By July, I want to have lowered my cholesterol by at least 10 points. I will track my intake and use my senses and the internet to make healthy choices.
By this time next year, I want to have lost at least 50 lbs. More would be great, but less is not acceptable!!! (Well, it is because once it's done, I can't change it, but I will admit I will be disappointed. )
I CAN DO THIS!!!!! I WILL DO THIS!!!!!! I AM ABLE TO DO THIS!!!!!!!
