First Goal Reached!!!!

Saturday, May 16, 2009

emoticon Lost 3 more pounds this week!! I met my first goal.
It was a big suprise, thought for sure I had gained. Our theater group's first show of the season opened last night, so I've been at rehearsals all week, on top of work and everything else. Lots of drive-thru dinners, so I wasn't very confident this morning. When I stepped on the scale, I was SOOO happy!!! emoticon

So now I set my next goal. 10 pounds by July 20. There is a summer Victorian Ball in Riverside on July 24th. I want to look good for that!!! Maybe even make new dress!!!

I've been a lot more conscious about what I'm eating. Even if it's not always the best choice, I'm aware that it is what it is, and I'm choosing it. I'm not eating without thinking about it.
I've been a lot more active since joining SP also. Walking is something I look forward to now. It's my time, for me. I might even be able to start getting in a Ballet class once a week soon. My endurance is getting better, which is what I was worried about. That, and my legs being able to hold me up. But with the walking and losing 17 pounds (I had lost 3#s just before SP was suggested to me from a Weight Loss Challenge group leader) I think Im ready to dance again.

Speaking of the Weight Loss Challenge, it ended today and I won!!!!! Out of the 7 people who joined, only 3 of us made it through the 12 weeks. We all lost pounds or inches, and I lost the most!!! Meg, the leader, told me about SP when I wasn't losing anything( and even gaining slightly) and said I should check it out. I'm so glad I did!!!! emoticon

    Congratulations!
    It feels so good reaching those goals! Stay the course - you are doing great being aware of what you are eating. One of the next steps to consider is to plan ahead. I learned that could call ahead to resturants or look on line and plan what I was going to eat, before meeting friends. Or if going to someone's home - either ask - or make sure I've eaten healthy the rest of the day - for example if someone typically makes veggies in one of those tasty but calorie laden casseroles - I eat a bag of steamed veggies at home with a little lemon pepper or garlic salt on it, then just a taste of the less healthy stuff - and that way I reach my daily goal of 5 or more fruits / veggies in a healthier way. You are changing your lifestyle - and it's to be YOUR lifestyle - don't let anyone else dictate to you how you are going to eat! Best wishes and good luck on your healthy lifestyle journey.
