Goals..what are those...oh yeah, the things I am trying so hard to define and stick to.
Long Term Goal, Physical: To lose 100 pounds by April 2012
Long Term Goal, Mental: To acknowledge the 170 pounds I have already lost and FEEL IT!
Mid Term Goal, Physical: To lose 50 pounds by August 2011 (51 would be nice as this would be the first time I have been under 200 pounds as an adult)
Mid Term Goal, Mental: To come to terms with my inner self, what I need to do to clear the decks and get my physical self on track and quit putting myself down.
Short Term Goal: Take each day as it comes
Short Term Goal: Log in to Spark People every day
Short Term Goal: Prep meals the evening before
Short Term Goal: Drink all my water
Short Term Goal: Use the word restart, instead of fail.
Short Term Goal: Acknowledge my milestones. A day of success is a success--don't minimize it.
Short Term Goal: Get my Gazelle up and working (by the end of the month)
I broke my ankle, femur and messed up my knee in 2009. I have had 4 operations on my leg in the last 18 months. They are talking of replacing my knee this August. Right now it is pure ice outside and I have to walk with a cane. It hurts so bad. Next Friday GotJunk is coming to take one of my chairs and then my friends are coming over to help me put together my Gazelle. It doesn't make you bend your knee like an eliptical or a bike...my knee grinds like a barbie knee with all the clicks.
I had gastric bypass in 2003 and I lost 170 pounds, but I don't really feel any different. I haven't lost any more weight since about 2006 but I haven't gained any back either. I sure can't carry 170 pounds. My GB doc has a food bank drive every year, where you donate as much food as you have lost. 170 pounds is a LOT of food.
But I am still morbidly obese. I weighed over 300 pounds when I graduated high school so this is the least I have weighed as an adult. I don't even know what my goal weight is.
