Starting over for the 65457 time.
Monday, August 11, 2014
This may be the umpteenth time I've started over. But, this time WILL be the last. I actually took official "before" photos this time. I want to post them, but I'm too chicken at this time. I will, but I'm not ready just yet. They were hard to look at, to say the least. I've created a folder in my email and every week I will post new pics along with my weight. Eventually, I will do this here..when I'm ready.
So, I tracked everything I ate today. I also did the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred. Man alive! I will be sore tomorrow! lol.
A lot of things have changed over the past few months. I left my boyfriend of 6 years. I'm starting over. I have my own place, doing my own thing again. It feel liberating. Now, it's time for this last bit to fall into place. It was hard to leave my ex, but I did it. This proves to me that I can do anything I set my mind to. This includes my weight loss.
I want to stay positive. I want, scratch that, WILL stay accountable. That's all I have now.. me and my amazing and supportive family and friends AND of course, you Sparkies out there. You understand more than anyone how hard this journey is.
My journey is a long one. I have about 80 pounds to lose. But, small goals for now, right? My smaller goal is to be down 35 pounds (starting today) by Christmas. That's roughly 2 pounds a week. I think it's totally attainable and realistic. But, more than pounds, I want to focus on my self-esteem, and inches -how my clothes are fitting. That will keep me going more than that pesky scale!
I feel good. I feel it's right this time. I can do this!
