Losing weight… Healthier, Skinnier Me!!
I go through spurts of being completely content and happy, then I’ll wake up one day and decide I need a change. Nothing ever to extreme, more like a mini makeover for me which often involves, eating habits, weight issues, working out, a change for me to make me feel better. A Healthier, Skinnier Me is on the way!!
With that being said let me tell you what started this whole thing, a gym membership which has been paid for every month for almost a year and it hasn’t been used nearly as much as it should be used. It’s a great gym, and when we first got our membership we went 4 times a week, then someone got sick, worked late, was to tired etc. I am sure you know how that story goes, and eventually we stopped going. Last summer I was a bikini wearing in decent shape woman, if I were to go to the beach today I’d wear a one piece and a cover up. (Really!!) I’ve completely let myself go and it’s time to take control again.
I wanted to start June 1st. but you all know how that goes!! One thing lead to another and it got pushed back. Well determination is my middle name, and once this woman gets determined to do something… Well watch out world.
It’s healthier eating and working out daily and sticking to it!! I’ve also signed up to My Fitness Pal and joined a summer challenge. My current weight … (cough cough.. 185 lbs) *lowers her head in shame and cries* Really how did this happen? Why hasn’t the people in my life mentioned that I’ve gained weight? In all honesty I wear the weight well and don’t look 185 lbs. (recent photo here) I know that muscle weights more than fat and I have some muscle tone… but.. well for my height and age I should be at the max 128lbs. So that’s my goal!! I want to lose 60lbs and I am determined to get it done.
As I mentioned before I joined a summer challenge that started June 10th and runs until the end of August. I am using the challenge as a means of motivation, and it gives me some sort of accountability. Getting to my goal weight during the 11 week challenge probably isn’t doable as that would be 5.4 lbs a week. (hmm thinks to herself) Sounds good but I am not going to set to high of goals and then be discouraged because I didn’t achieve them. My weight today is 185lbs my next weight in is Saturday June 16th. (they started the 10th, I am starting the 12th) I will still weight in on the 16th, so I can keep on track with the challenge. (I don’t think 2 days will make that much of a difference)
