Weigh In Wednesday #1
One of the things that I need/want to change has to do with my weight. I have struggled with my weight the majority of my life. I remember being teased in grade school, high school and college about my weight. I am of the mindset now that I don't need to be skinny, I just want/need to be healthy. And right now I am not healthy. I am overweight and just not happy with how I look or how I feel. I am constantly tired and just feel blah, and I think a lot of that has to do with inactivity and the way that I have been eating. I am at the highest that I have been in the last 10 years, (minus the times that I have been pregnant).
I really would like to lose 40 lbs over the course of the year, which is doable as it is less than a pound a week. But I know it will be hard work as well. I have several things I need to work on, including eating better, drinking more water, moving more and being less stressed (or at least finding a stress reliever that does not involve chocolate!). I know that I can't attack all of these things at once, as that would only set me up for failure....
So I have decided to have a weekly accountability forum here on my blog. Every Wednesday I will be posting a "Weigh In Wednesday" post where I will post my weight taken that morning and things that I did good on the previous week, and things (goals) to work on for the next week. I think that by doing this, I can break it down into smaller goals and hopefully make myself more accountable!
So here we are in week 1::
My official starting weight is::: 235.6 lbs.
My food goal for this week::: Only drink 1 diet pop a day, the rest of the time choose water.
My fitness goal for the week::: Do a Wii Fit activity for 20 minutes at least 4 days.
So there you have it. My new plan for losing weight. The year of being 35 will be the year of change. I WANT it. I NEED to do this to be healthier and hopefully to be on the right foot to live at least another 35 years.
Any words of wisdom? Thoughts? Advice?
I would love to have all the support I can get!!
