Good morning to all!!!
Happy Sunday! Hard to believe that summer is coming to a close. Makes me so sad but it was a great summer....hot & sunny & wonderful so I am not complaining.
Well, yesterday was weigh in day for me @ WW and I'm happy to report that I lost 1#. Not a huge amt but they all add up for sure. I am still about 1/2# away from my lowest weight as a couple of weeks ago I had a 2# gain but its OK...bumps in the road happen.
I feel excited with September here for some reason. Certainly not because my bday is 3 weeks from today, that's for sure! I think its just a renewed sense of motivation has come over me to get going again. Weight loss this summer was tough but I hung in there & am happy to report that I have not missed a meeting all summer & I have gotten on that scale whether I liked what is said or not. I'm proud of myself for sticking with my weight loss program this long and I believe with all my heart that this time is different & it is gonna happen, and that excites me beyond words!!!
I mapped out a plan last night & put it on paper. I am 32# away from reaching my goal of 150# & I know that unless you have a clear plan of action, you are like a ship floating in the water with no land in sight. So I set some clear cut attainable goals for myself as well as some rewards along the way to give myself special things to look forward to. My goal is to lose 5# each month from now until Feb. Some months have 5 weeks, but most have 4 weeks so that's about 1 1/4# a week. Totally DO ABLE! I want to be at goal by March 31st 2012. I have decided that I am not going to kill myself or deprive myself in my journey so that's why I have stretched my ultimate goal over a 6 month time frame. I decided for every 1# I lose, I am going to put $20/pound lost in an envelope & when I reach my goal, I am going to use that money to go and buy some new clothes. I will probably need an entirely new closet full but that will help give me a great start. I'm still about 2.6# away from those darned 170s!! Man, getting there has been nothing short of a monkey on my back & it is time for the monkey to get off!!! lol. I wanted to be in the 160s by my bday but I realize that it is a pretty audacious goal to think that in 3 weeks I will lose 13# considering my track record which is losing at a trickle. So Septembers goal is to weigh 178.2 by Sept 30th. I have 4.2# more to go to reach it.
Its a lazy Sunday & we just got back from church. I am going to do my grocery shopping soon before it gets crazy at the store. I hate the crowds but I always shop on Sundays & its a necessary evil.
Have a great day today my friends!
Love & belief that if you can believe it, you CAN achieve it!!
