2020 vision in my weight loss journey

Wednesday, February 05, 2020

Yes, I realize Feb 5th isn't technically the day to make New Year's resolutions. But I wanted to get down in writing some of the goals I see myself reaching in 2020. Now that I've entered Onederland, one goal is to never see 200 again! Sparkpeople has many articles and posts on how much harder it is to maintain than lose, so I don't anticipate an easy journey. Low carb isn't my diet of choice. It's my new way of life. I want to make exercise another way of life. I want the 500 monthly exercise badge from Sparkpeople. By my first anniversary on low carb, I'm aiming for a weight of 175. This will be a negotiable goal, as I have no idea what my body can do at that weight...71 pounds less than when I was first introduced to Sparkpeople in March 2019. Other 2020 goals: Maybe run/walk a 5k? Help my son get healthy? Start a local group for people struggling with their weight? Those of you who are still successful with your New Year's resolutions, tell me what they are. Maybe I'll take a couple. And I'd love to hold each other accountable!

    I am going to turn 50 this year. I needed to take stock of my life. January 1 I started limiting calories but not choices. This was a big shift from my previous weight loss journeys. I also gave up alcohol. I am adding in more goals little by little and would love to see wonderland by the end of July when my birthday is. My current weight is 222.5. I am not sure if I can do that at my age. We'll see. Good for you on taking control of your health and I wish you all the luck and blessings on your journey!

    So far mine are rolling pretty good. I want to get to gym 3-4 times a week. Almost met that for January surgery made it miss but not by much. I am on track to meet that for February. I also want to drop 30lbs and get back to eating more healthy.
