Excited to have Started, Again!
Friday, June 06, 2014
I restarted my healthy living June 1st. It hasn't been quiet a week yet but I LOVE that I have started. This week has went so much easier than I thought it would. Grant it today I am STARVING but you will have days like that. I am trying really hard to find the urge to mindlessly stuff my face and am waiting until it is time to eat. Iced Tea (unsweet of course) and water are my best friends right now...lol.
I am hoping the scale (and my pants!) will show me something this Sunday when I do my weigh in (wish I would have measured myself but can't find my darn measuring tape). I will honestly say I will be a little bummed if it isn't at least 2 or 3 lbs because I have worked soooo hard....but I also understand it won't happen in a week or two. I will continue to work hard so that it will keep coming off, even if it is slowly.
For goals I have 2 small ones (weight wise) and 1 main one.
First Goal is to lose 10 lbs around July 13th which is about 6 weeks from my starting time. My reward is to go out with my hubby and our friends to a night on the town w/o having to worry about the kids overnight. We had done this to celebrate our anniversary last Saturday (a week early because I have to work on our anniversary) and it was SOOO much fun. I can't wait to do it again.
Second Goal is to lose and additional 15 lbs around September 21st. My reward then will be to go and have my hair done. I hope to get it professionally dyed and put highlights in it...which is something I have never done before but have been wanting to for a couple years now.
Main Goal is to lose 40 lbs overall by my birthday of December 2nd. That is roughly 26 weeks. That means I would like to lose about 1.5 lbs a week.
Now I know weight is not everything which I COMPLETELY agree with. Along with my weight goal I have a "Clothing" goal. I don't really care what my weight is as long as I can comfortably wear size 11 jeans and Medium shirts. I have an outfit I hope to be able to wear so I can judge how far I need to go. Right now it is VERY far...lol
But I am up for the challenge and would love if others would join me. I do so much better with others helping me and cheering me on. Call me weak/needy but it just motivates me and keeps me going. I will also try and cheer you on so if you would like a cheering buddy, feel free to add me =D
Starting Weight: 190 (June 1st)
1st Goal Weight: 180 (July 13th)
2nd Goal Weight: 165 (Sept 21st)
Main Goal Weight: 150 (Nov 30th)
