I finally feel some sense of control again. I've set a goal for my self of 150lbs by April 15th. Thats 15lbs in just about 7 weeks. With WW I think that it's entirely possible and I'm looking forward to seeing the weight start to drop off again. I've been sitting stagnant in the 160's for way too long. I have 1.2 lbs to go till I'm no longer obese. Hopefully I'll be doing the happy dance for that next week.
Oh and in my last post I mentioned how I'm starting a new job tomorrow and my goal was to be no more than 165lbs when I started. WoooooHoooo!!! Goal met!!! I'll be starting work wearing a new pair of black size 12p that make my butt look amazing, if I do say so myself :)
I'm starting a new job on the 28th after being out of work for 13 months. I'm determined to start that job weighing no more than 165 lbs. I have decided that I'll be weighing in every day until then. I know, I know, weighing every day is a big no-no but in this case I don't care. I weighed in this morning and already am down to 169.2 with just one day of being healthy. I think I should be able to get down to 165 as long as I continue. I'm looking forward to going back to work because I tend to be a boredom eater and being at the house all day in the winter is not good for that. In the summer it was great, 5 mile walks almost everyday, playing outside with my kids etc. but being inside the house and not exercising is killing me.
I started today on the right track. I had a big scramble made with egg beaters, green peppers, tomato, chicken and half a slice of havarti cheese with an english muffin. It was a huge amount of food and it clocked in at around 400 calories. I drank coffee with splenda and sugarfree french vanilla coffee-mate with it. Lunch is going to be a lean cuisine steam entree, not sure what kind yet but they're pretty yummy.
As I said I've been hiding but I'm not going to hide anymore. I need to get back on this weight loss and stop using the 3 feet of snow outside as an excuse not to exercise. I need to stop eating the remainder of whats on my kids plates just because it's there. I need to stop the late night snacking. I need to move my body and remind myself how good it feels to see the numbers going down on the scale rather than up. I need to stop putting off eating healthy till the next day and the next and the next.
I need to do this.
I'm starting now.
