I am a pound over my stated weight. I've been up to 8 pounds over and up and down in that range. I'm happy with my improved fitness level, health and overall appearance. I am carrying weight in my giggly belly area. My plan is to make a difference over the tow month summer break from school. Two weeks are already gone - and no appreciable weight loss. I need to get more serious!
I have two vacations built into my two month break. I'll be visiting my daughter's in-laws in New York and New Jersey over the 4th of July and going to Canada with my other daughter at the end of July, right before I go back to school. I need a new plan and schedule to make the gains in loss that I want to achieve.
This is the beginning of my new plan - a commitment to change. I want the same (or close to) fire I had when I started. Then I had real health challenges which have been solved through the changes I've made thanks to Sparkpeople. I think I've become too comfortabe and lax with myself. I've got to come up with new motivators that will keep me accountable to myself. I still have one blood pressure med I can work to get off of and getting rid of my belly is something that would be great. I will loose another 15 pounds!
Time management is going to be critical and limiting my down time (knitting and watching TV). I will review and tweek my last goals and then truly committmnet myself to making it happen. This is the REAL new beginning!
