More attainable?

Thursday, April 16, 2009

That's what I have made my new goal. I've changed it from 135 to 145. I always thought that I had to weigh 135 in order to look and feel good about myself. But it's no longer about how I look. I had my follow up appointment with my endo and I still have diabetes. It didn't go away after the pregnancy. I am, to say the least, disappointed. The only positive thing right now is that I do NOT have to be on insulin. Diet and exercise are managing it for me and as long as I can stay on track there I should be alright.

I didn't change my weight to be lazy but just so that I know that it is within my reach and because it puts my BMI in the healthy range, and that's really I'm looking for, to know that I did what I could to help myself!!

Once I reach the 145 mark, I will re-evaluate my goals and how I feel, and go from ther. It'll be either to maintain or to then make a new goal of 135.

The 5K this year is a little later than normal so I will get two more weeks to train...thank goodness!! I don't think I would have made it through to run it like I did last year. I start training with the couch to 5K podcasts today...hopefully it will go well. We'll see.

    I think changing your goal is a positive step. I've never even dreamed of 135, but I am 5'6" so that would prob be pretty thing for me. My goal has always been 140, but I was pretty darn happy and healthy in the 150's so, like you said maintaining a little higher than your dream weight is not failure by any stretch of the imagination. Good luck to you!! And I hope you manage to get ready for you race!
