It has been almost one week since I have gotten serious about losing weight and making some lifestyle changes. It has been my goal to lose 1-2 lbs per week safely and with choices that I can live with. So far so good!
I am happy to report that I am down from 164.4 to 162.2!! That said, I would also like to say there have been times when I was willing to throw in the towel, too! The initial weeks of change are crucial and easy to give up because we have been in the habit, or the bad habit as it were, for soooo long.
But, I have certain checks in place that keep me in place.
THAT PHOTO. You know the one, where you were caught unawares and ‘OUCH’ that hurt to see it.
I also have my RESOLVE to keep me going. I have done this before and I can do it again.
Timeline…I gave myself 2 months to lose 18lbs. That makes things…REAL
MyFitnessPal to see my food and exercise progress daily
And certainly the love and support of my most awesome family!
Everyone will have their own list of what keeps them going, this is mine. It is important to know where you are going. But WHY is equally important and certainly HOW is going to get you there. Hopefully, this blog will help you out with the how and maybe a little with the where, too.
The WHY is totally up to YOU!
