So, I've been within the same 5 pounds for several months now, which is at least 115 pounds more than where I'd like to be. But so far, I'm failing at finding something that both works and sticks. If only I had a inner personal trainer/dietician that kept me on my toes…the same way that my inner personal critic keeps me on my butt. I really need to retrain my brain.
The end of the year is only 41 days away. In 41 days, I want to be on a path to a healthier me.
I know what I have to do. I just hope I can start and keep on these…
-Try to be a Flexitarian.
-Move more, sit less.
I'm hoping that by this time next year…
-I'll be 50+ pounds lighter.
-I'll be able to walk 3mph without feeling tired or sore.
-I'll be stronger and able to lift more.
-I won't have saggy skin or a baggy belly.
-Clothes will fit better on me.
-I'll feel a lot better about myself, my life, etc.
-And my overall health will be good.
Tonight, I checked out SP for the first time in well over a year. I changed some goals, read some articles and blogs, and debated about when to start tracking again.
I dread the tracking part, but it works. I remember when I used to use SP religiously (tracking, completing daily goals, earning points, etc). I remember losing a lot of weight in almost two years and getting within 15 pounds of my goal weight. Then I hit a plateau for over 3 months before I quit tracking. It took 2 years to gain the weight back, but the weight hasn't really budged in almost a year. If I can get back into tracking my food and exercise, I might start losing again.
