Tomorrow is the first actual day of my goal challenge. Weight loss! Argg. I wish I could eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. That would be so delightful but I can’t.
Let’s get to this. I am 5′ and weigh 134 lbs. Not obese but not in my range either. My goal is 10 pounds in 10 weeks. The 10/10 goal is what I am naming this. One pound per week seems doable and healthy. My mind needs to be right and I need to think of this a bit differently. My way is in 10 weeks I will be 10 pounds lighter and healthier. 10 short weeks I will be 124. I swear I have been in the 120’s for so long. I just don’t even know how I will act once I hit that goal.
Now I know I will have great days and I know I will have not so great days. I am prepared so they don’t sidetrack me.
I need to balance stress in my life so I don’t turn to food. That sounded so easy. My mind though is made up. This is something that I want to do and will do…period.
I will do weekly weigh-ins. I thought about daily but I believe that would be too much for me and if I didn’t see any movement I must get a bit down on myself. Weekly for me is better.
Tomorrow I am off to the races. Wish me luck!
As I was sitting in the hospital, it gave me a lot of time to think. I decided to change my goals and focus on my health instead of the go, go attitude.
The first goal that I will share in this writing is weight loss. For me I will no longer use the excuse of it’s only 10 pounds, not a big deal. It is a big deal as I am only 5′ tall so an extra 10 pounds is significant on my frame. Now my weight didn’t put me in the hospital but while I was there, it certainly didn’t make me feel good.
I will nolonger kid myself and say “I’ll just watch what I eat and I will be fine. Oh no not this time. I have to be specific in order for me to succeed. So here goes.
- I will weigh myself each week on Monday morning and report my weight in this blog starting next Monday.
- I will drink two more bottles of water each day.
- I will give up 1 bottle of Diet Coke each day.
- I will lose 1 pound each week for 10 weeks.
Now of course I could set my goals higher but I know me and I know if I miss a week that will put me in a little tailspin which I would have to recover from. Not saying one pound will be easy but it certainly is doable.
With that I share my first goal with you.
Wish me luck as I go on this weight loss adventure.
Until next time Peace!
