My Goal

Thursday, February 07, 2013

My failed attempts at keeping my weight loss off have made me realize that I must have think about the long-term first. Once my weight loss goal is reached I figure I will have a harder time keeping it off than losing it. I must re-educate myself and change both my husband and I's eating habits. My Goal is a bunch of mini-goals. My first goal two weeks ago was to get from 208.6 to 198. I am currently at 197 so that goal is met. I know that 11 pounds is too much weight to lose in 2 weeks but it was mainly water and from my bowels :) and I think that dramatic weight loss within a few weeks of starting a diet is pretty common. My next mini-goal is 190, so i have around 7 pounds until I meet that goal, hopefully I can meet that within three weeks. My overall goal weight is 165 lbs, I can't imagine being any smaller than that! Most of the women in my family are 150 pounds or less, I ENVY them.

SW- 208.6
CW- 197.0
Mini-GW- 190
GW- 165

Right now I am tracking all of my calorie intake but also am educating myself about Low-Carb diets. My next nutrition goal is to incorporate a Low-Carb diet into my Low-Calorie diet.
I am keeping my calories around 1200-1400 a day, though two days I have binged at 2000 calories a day. I am also using Alli when my meal has higher fat in it, some days I don't even have to use it. I do plan on buying another bottle of Alli, right now I have about 15 left and am using them sparingly. I am going to be adding a protein shake for breakfast this week, I am not really going to be using them as meal replacement. Because I don't ever eat breakfast anyway but I know that I need something, so a shake is better than nothing. A pattern I have noticed since I was a teen with me is to skip breakfast and then for dinner eat a whopping 3000 calories! Am also thinking on lunch and snack ideas too.

Right now I am not exercising, I don't know what I am waiting on. Maybe I am just afraid, because I have never been able to be consistent with exercising! I get tired constantly and I can't even remember the load in the washer much less remember to exercise. "Slow and steady wins the race". It's getting warmer outside so I am thinking that dropping the baby off at her G-Grandmothers and just walking a little might help jump start it. Maybe tomorrow...

    A goal is a great place to start. Blogging about accomplishing your goals is even better! I am right there with you on the exercising. I just couldn't make myself get up and go do it. I had been putting it off and finally yesterday had to say I am going to go walk. I made that commitment to my SP buddies on my blog and said that I would let them know when I did it. I did not want to let anyone down! So at 7:30 last night, even though I was so tired and just wanted to stay in my chair, I got up and did one of the walking videos (it was raining)-- there are lots of low impact videos here on SP, some of them are only 12-15 minutes. It's amazing how much better I felt just by meeting that one goal that I had promised that I would meet yesterday. And, I lived! It was not hard at all. :)
    Another SP buddy started blogging her weekly goals- like a list of things to accomplish for the week. The next week she blogs her week in review to hold herself accountable. I started doing that last week, and I think that it is helping me.
    Congratulations on your start!
