From as far back as I can remember I have been overweight and have attempted one diet after another to try to become that skinny girl I always dreamed of being. I'm starting this blog in hopes of using this as my motivational tool to finally change my lifestyle and get healthy. Feel free to cheer me on, give me advice or criticize me if need be. I'm way tougher on myself than anyone else can be on me.
I got up this morning thinking that I wasn't going to lose anything this week; not because I didn't eat good or exercise enough just because I figured it was about time for me to have one week where I didn't lose but luckily I was wrong. I got on the scale praying that I would see some kind of loss and when the screen finally lit up with the number it said 233.6 lbs. Thats a loss of 1.8 lbs this week and a total of 13.4 lbs in 7 weeks. I think thats pretty good, thats just about 2 lbs a week which I would be completely satisfied with. My goal for this next week is to lose 1.6 lbs so that I can hit 15 lbs lost. I can't believe I'm already that close to 15 lbs and then my next goal is to hit 20 lbs lost and then my 10% lost which would be 24.7 lbs. I'm trying to set lots of mini goals so that I don't feel like I have so far to go between each milestone and I can celebrate my weight loss all along the way.
