I wanted to throw in my measurements that I took yesterday!!!!
Thighs together: 38″
Left Thigh: 26″
Right Thigh: 25.5″
Left Arm: 13″
Right Arm: 13″
I’m testing a theory.
I’ve realized that perhaps me not having a definite goal in mind…that perhaps I’m not making myself push towards something.
At this point I’ve got this whole mindset of “I don’t care when I lose the weight by…I just want to lose the weight.
Which, honestly, is good thinking…. in some senses. If I don’t have a goal (further than one week) then how can I expect myself to actually lose weight? Don’t get me wrong, I want to…. definitely want to…. but I think that if I were to actually set monthly goals… then I might actually be more hard on myself to lose weight.
Because right now…it’s a case where eating bad foods isn’t really a thought in my mind. I just kind of hit this point where it’s all like…. “well at least I’ll lose weight”
Which hasn’t been working out for me these last month or so…. so I’m going to put some goals that have expiration dates on them. Even my goal poster… I just have “Hit 180 pounds” which is a great goal (not trying to be concieted) but as long as I git that goal I’ll be happy. I need to push myself a little bit more, just so that I’m not “fat” forever. You know?
So I think that I am going to do monthly goals.
Realistic goals. At this point I’m thinking 6 pounds a month. That is 1.5 pounds a week. Seems reasonable to me. Especially since I can healthily lose closer to 2 a week.
So this is kind of what I’m thinking for myself.
It’s going to be kind of strange at first because it’s going to be in 4 weekgroups…. so it isn’t going to be March 1st, April 1st, May 1st… that kind of thing… strictly going with Weeks…. I’m kind of 1/2 way through the week so my first week will be next week… got it???
March 7th – 191
April 4th – 185
May 2nd – 179
May 30 – 173
June 27 – 167
From here I’m only going to try to lose 4 pounds every 4 weeks (1 per week)
July 25 – 163
August 22nd – 159
September 19 – 155
October 17th – 151
November 14th – 147
So… right around November… I should hit my goal weight. Hopefully. It leaves room for weeks that I lose less than what I’m hoping….or weeks that I lose more.
So… I’m hoping to do really good.
I need to be accountable to what I’m putting into my mouth, and how much I am working out.
We’ll see how it goes.
