I've gone completely off the rails in the last few weeks! I've had pizza (twice), went to a 2 year olds birthday party, and just plain gave up. So in the last 3 weeks, I've had gains, losses and gains again - and in total I have gained 600g, and am now plonked on 122kg. That's ok! I have found my motivation! I kept thinking - 'Why did I start this in the first place???' and then I remembered it was because I was ashamed to show anyone my wedding photos. But now I'm going to show the world and post the picture that I had my 'OMG, I need to lose weight' moment to:
I also wrote myself some goals for the month of August:
1. Begin a sleeping routine. Go to bed at 11pm, and wake at 7am – every day
2. Take the dog for a walk for 15 minutes 6 days a week
3. Get below 120kgs (lose 2.5kg)
4. Drink at least 1L of water every day
While these are just small goals, I feel like I can achieve them this month. Last night I went to bed at 1am, but woke up at 8am this morning anyway. Hopefully now I'll be tired enough to go to bed at 11pm tonight
I'm 2.1kg away from getting below 120kg, which makes me excited! I'm feeling more prepared with my goals, because even though it doesn't say 'stick to my points every single day' - my goals are still baby steps for a healthier, slimmer me.
I've also given myself until Christmas 2010 to get to my final goal weight (which is either 70 or 65, I'm still not sure. Was going to assess that when I get much closer). That's about 70 weeks from now, hopefully plenty of time to lose between 52 and 57kg. I would really like to be below 100kg for Christmas this year, and 95kg by my 21st. I don't know if I'll get there, but at least if I plan for it, and only get halfway there - I'd be further than if I hadn't planned at all.
