Need For Change….
The past week has been terrible. I am starting to have back pain again and am not able to work out. With this happening, I am finding it harder to track and work towards weight loss. I need to change. Right now, I am writing this because I want to make a promise. I want to complete the TurboFire Prep Schedule for the next 9 weeks. I also want to track my calories and work at losing a minimum of 18 lbs. I will do this! I will do my starting weigh in first thing tomorrow morning. I will also not hope that I lose the weight. I will lose the weight!!!!
I Am Soooooo Sore….
The one great thing about working out for the first time in a long time is that sore feeling that shows your hard work. I am feeling that this week. I can’t believe how I have let my body just barely reach it’s exercise potential. I hope very soon that I will get better at the exercises and keep doing them 100%. My week consists of 6 days of TurboFire’s Prep Schedule and 1 day of dance. I think 7 days of exercise is amazing. Usually 2 of these days is just stretching. Now, all I am wondering is what to do about my schedule. I am such a night person, so I do better with working out at night. But sometimes this just doesn’t work out. So, I will later see if I can get into a morning workout routine. We shall see. I guess as long as I get it done, it really doesn’t matter when I do it. I will keep you all posted…..have a great week!
2 More Days….
Until I need to weigh in for the end of week 4. Weighed in at 257 lbs. this morning. I am on my way to getting down to 255 lbs. I realized that my lax eating was not the best choice this week and that next week I will be more careful. I went through a little setback but I am now going in the right direction. 2 days to get down 2 lbs. I think I can do it!!!!
Yep, that is what the scale said this morning. It is time to get back on track and start losing again. I have had 3 whole days of eating way too much! I guess that is why I like to weigh myself every day. It is a great way to know when I am going overboard and when I need to be more strict with my diet. Goal today? I am going to eat right under my daily calories. I will NOT go over today!!!!
Change of Plans…
So, this morning I weighed in at 256.4 lbs. That is a total loss so far of 7.6 lbs. I am so excited on the progress that I have made so far. The plan was to only lose 2 lbs. a week. Well, I am ahead of that plan. I only need to get to 256 lbs. by next Monday. The same thing happened last week and I allowed myself to indulge more than I should because I was so far ahead. I guess the reason that I am writing this is because I need to not lose focus. I need to take advantage of the faster weight loss right now and strive for more. So, I will work on losing one extra pound this week. My goal is to get below 255 lbs. by next Monday. It would be even better if I can make it below 254 lbs. I will work on my eating more this week and strive to lose the weight. Stay tuned….
Goodbye to the 260’s….
This morning, I weighed in at 256.4 lbs. I am very happy about my weight loss so far. Soon, I should be halfway through the 250’s. I guess that is why I wanted to write a goodbye post to the 260’s. I mentally did this when I lost the first time and never got back up to 280 lbs. I told myself that if I ever got close, that I would continue on weight loss and get back down out of the 270’s. This has worked really well. There had been a few times that I have been in the mid 270’s but I would always lose again. So, now I want to make this promise with 260. I will never weigh 260 lbs. again!
Getting to Onderland…..Soon
On the 31st of December, I weighed in at 264 lbs. I was sad and happy. Sad because I am still in the 260’s after almost 3 years here in Spain…but happy because I am no longer 280 lbs. I really had to sit down at the end of 2012 and think about what I was doing wrong. I know what I need to do to lose weight. The true problem was that I was doing the wrong things. I was mentally telling myself that I couldn’t and wouldn’t do it. I was setting myself up for failure because I was too lazy to track my foods and I would always put weight loss on the back burner. So, at the end of 2012 (Literally December 31, 2012), I promised myself never again. I made a promise to never restart weight loss and to keep tracking. I also promised myself that I would succeed. No more excuses and no more negative thoughts. I will work on getting to Onderland by this summer. I will work on losing 2 lbs. a week so that I can lose 64 lbs. by 12 August 2013. I CAN do this!!!!
