Evaluation and Goals

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Looking back over this past year I went from 171.8 down to 161.8 with 2 weigh-ins during November at 159. Over Christmas I went back up to 166.2. We were out of town for 2 weeks with family and eating ate out some too. Pants that were very snug are now very comfortable. During this year I have increased the intensity of my exercise and decreased the amount of sugar I eat.

My goal for this year is to get down into the 150’s and never see the 160’s again. I plan on increasing the length of my exercise each day by focusing on adding extra sessions each day. Will continue to decrease the amount of sweets including artificial sweeteners. Also planning on cooking more from scratch instead of using so much processed food. That way I can control the amount of sodium and additives that we eat.

Looking forward to a wonderful and productive 2013.

    Great goals. I would love to cook more from scratch but since I work full time prepared foods are just so much more convenient.. We try to watch the sugar and fat content even with prepared foods, not so much sodium, although we should. I haven't really gained or lost much this year I guess my body is in maintenance even if I'm not ready for it to be. I would like to lose 10 or 15 more pounds but it seem as hard as I try I can't get there. Oh well I'm just ecstatic that I've been able to keep the weight off this year. Of course, i fluctuate 3 to 5 pound depending on the amount of water I drink and the amount of sodium I eat but I don't consider that weight gain.

    Good Luck with your goals for 2013 emoticon

    good goals, sounds like you have developed lots of muscles and firmed up, which is great, I plan on getting down at least 5 pounds, and staying there, I have been at goal, but it has been a long time, so I would be happy to get down to low 120's
