Boy, oh Boy, was 2013 a rough, exciting, crazy year! I completed my master's degree in December and have been living of that high :) Now it is time to focus on the future.
I am back above my starting point last time - 240; which is very depressing. But I am not going to let it get me down. I have lost the weight before, and I will do it again. I tried to pinpoint where I went from losing to gaining, and it looks like right around the time my favorite dog, Sgt Tibbs was put down. Makes complete sense to me, he was my best friend and I still miss him nearly 2 years later. He was 16 years - we got him when I was 7 - he is a part of all my childhood, teen memories. Definitely threw me back into a "I don't care" mode, but now I DO CARE! Its my year, my future and I know I can lose the weight, gain the self confidence and have a fabulous attitude throughout the journey.
I have done a good job recording my food throughout this week and have decided to set some weekly goals for myself. I have been eating better, but have been struggling with fitting exercise into my schedule - today, I finally made it to the pool and I feel fantastic.
Record food 5 of 7 days
Go to the rec center 3 times per week
Drink 100 oz water per day.
Baby steps are the key. I don't have a time frame to goal but I would like to be able to fit in a particular dress by the middle of May as one of my best friends from high school is getting married and it will be my first time in 5 years to see a bunch of the people that will be there.
