I am happy to be on the Azure Destinations team this round of the BLC. Here are my goals for this challenge:
I will lose 20 pounds by the end of the challenge. I will do this by:
*tracking what I eat
*keeping to my food plan, which at this moment is Weight Watchers, incorporating a fair amount of Nutrisystem food. I did Nutrisystem exclusively for a long time but I want more than 1 piece of fruit a day. I don't think fruit is evil. When I weighed around 300 pounds it wasn't because I ate too much fruit!
*I will exercise a minimum of 1000 minutes in May, increasing if my knee and back say it's ok!
*I will connect with my team and others on Spark by participating in discussion threads, commenting on blogs and Spark pages, and sending goodies. I will support others because aside form helping them, it also helps me keep my choices in the forefront of my mind.
*when I stumble....and I will, because we all do eventually....I will get back on track immediately, see what I can learn from the stumble, and move forward.
My favorite quote is "If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results." It is by Jack Dixon. I have found this to be true in so many areas of life. We want ______ but we don't identify the steps we need to follow to get there OR we identify them, but don't actually take those steps. I plan to take these steps. I have not come this far to allow my behaviors to lead me back to nearly 300 pounds. I will get back to where I was before my gains, and then move closer to my ultimate weight goal, whatever that is. I'll decide when I get closer.
