I will admit through out this past year I keep hoping my issue with weight loss is ME. While, I have been able to lose here and there it doesn’t seem to stay. I still though keep wanting to prove me wrong and so here we are.
I am not sure if I told you guys but we moved our wedding date. We were suppose to get married in October but moved it June of 2014 as I talked about on my other blog. Anyways, we did so for financial reasons and I feel really good about this.
This past week I counted the weeks. That’s 58 weeks from now. My secret goal is to lose 100lbs. While it seems like a lot of weight (because it is) when you break it down it’s not so bad (about 1.7lb loss a week). However, logically I will be happy for even 50lbs at this point!
I would *LIKE* to be a size 18 by the time we have the wedding. But again with my health issues I am going to be open with all this. There is no this or else. I am just going along with goals in between (like my first major has been to get under 280 and stay under!).
So what am I doing to make this possible. I am going to RELAX… I decided to make sure everyday I do some sort of exercise if I can but I have to at least work out 5 days a week. I have found that when I do lose it’s ALWAYS when I am working out along of course with diet.
Second, diet…. My plan for that is simple. Just eat less. When I eat something I tell myself I have to eat half of what I normally would. I’m not sure how well this will work (Though it worked great for my dad) but I feel it’s worth a try. I think portions are a big deal.
I also know at times I can be an over eater. So we shall see. On Friday I will start back with the weigh in’s but I will have to keep mental notes about PMS and ovulation. For the past year I ALWAYS have gained during this time but I always lose once AF arrives. I need to just remind myself this during those times.
That way I won’t be so hard on me.
Last, I can’t say F it… I have and lord do I suck at challenges I am challenging myself to not say F it. I can’t just say this plan isn’t working and just quit and do something else. I have to just keep going and IF nothing is working then I just have to keep pushing with the doctors to find out WHY!
I have started making myself a bit more active by scheduling work outs’ with my online moms weight loss group I manage. oh and um yeah, I am doing a Mud run 5k on September 7th. This will be my first race EVER! Can you believe it? Not me!
One of the moms in my group wanted to go, I mentioned how D and I would love to try a race but funds are low. Well, she opted to challenge me that if she paid I would go. I accepted… EEEEKKKK…. After seeing the obstacles I totally had a what the F did I get myself into. But ya know what. even if I am the biggest person there I will do it
Here is the run I am doing - http://www.mudfactor.com/ I am excited, scared you name it!!!! Oh and we have a team which we have named ourselves the Dirty P.H.A.T Girls (any tips on this race would be totally appreciated).
I will not give up on me….
