August saw me slip into a no motivational zone, fight to come back, and struggle along. I say this because it is true. The scale kept going down sometimes with larger numbers, but it kept going down. This fact makes me a little nervous since I can't really get a clear read on what works for me if everything is kind of working.
I motivated others, but slightly short on keeping myself motivated. My sister has fallen back on old habits and goes up and down, and up and down. I keep on her about what she is doing and what she wants, but I am not sure if it is making any kind of impact. My cousin has been making small changes, but again she slips and returns to old habits that aren't exactly good for her. I am not giving up on getting them to be right here with me. I feel bad to be losing weight when I see them struggling like this. I want them right here with me along this journey I want them to want to get healthy. I know they will when they are ready and this isn't something that you can make someone do, but I am going to keep checking in with them and making the most of what I can do for them.
Weight wise I started out at 297.6 lb on 8/3/2011 and am now on 09/01/2011 at 282.8 lb Total lost 14.8 lbs. I am extremely proud to have accomplished that. I set a goal of 8 pounds a month and do all I can while making the right eating choices that I can. I hope to remain ahead of my goals as I know how discouraging it is to be chasing them instead. I am not fooling myself. I know that at some point the amount of weight will get harder and harder to hit, but I am going to keep on pushing it.
August is over and September has begun. This month I want to accomplish:
1. Sign up for the Susan G. Komen 5K - Race for the Cure..it cost $30 and I am almost always living pay check to paycheck, but I really wanna do it.
2. Train for this event well in advance.
3. Lose another 8 lb this month
4. Continue to drink about 100 oz of water a day
5. Continue to work on my plan both food wise and fitness wise...I am gonna figure out what works for me.
6. Stay motivated and motivate others as best as I can
