I'm what???? 85 down?? Can't be me? Never thought it would happen!

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Journal Entry #4 - Wow! I can hardly believe I made it this far.. Talk about determination and perseverance... I have been happily working my way down since I got serious in April 2012.. - I used to be a size 24 and now I fit into Size 10 and 12 jeans!! My shirts are 14-16 because of my belly but I am working on that area pretty darn hard.... I hit my plateau end of January and have not dropped any weight since.. but the total cool thing is I have been maintaining!! Which is totally awesome for me.. I was starting to get depressed because I haven't lost anymore... I got a bit slack on diet and exercise because of illness and health issues.. I have not been down lower than 165 since 1991. I have tried many times to get below that horrible number for me to no avail.. this time will be different.. I am motivated and I keep that US Navy Seals motto in my brain like a mantra... how bad do i want this and what am I willing to do to get... and the only easy day was yesterday...

Since April is my anniversary date of changing my mindset last year - I will put the get up and go back into me... Excuses are for people who do not want it bad enough.. And I want to get rid of these last 30 pounds! A new year, a new month and a new me..

So I'm revamping my diet and my fitness routine.... I'm going to purchase 1 item of clothing that will be my motivator for me in a size 8 because I know I will do it!! I am thinking a wrap dress.... because it is simple, cute and flexible, lol.. I borrowed my friends for my most recent pic.. I loved playing dress-up that day when I reach 85# down!!!

Just another cool thing.... in the beginning it took me about 45 minutes to walk a mile... I can now jog 5 miles in one setting and it takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes!!! I did it tonight after work... I use fitbit.. and I just changed the basic goals from 10k steps an day to 15k steps and i changed 5 miles a day to 7... those are pretty challenging and I am hoping this will help break that plateau.. Have a good night and thanks for reading... I just wanted to voice out loud to hold myself accountable....
