June 18th, 2011 is only about 7 months away. What day is that, you might ask? Well, after 5 years, Brandon and I are finally having a wedding :-) As it stands right now, I don't want a camera pointed anywhere near me...SO there's the motivation ;-)
Weighed this morning (after breakfast because I forgot lol): 230.5lbs
I want to be at most, 170 by next June. Which gives me 7months to lose 60lbs. Doable? I sure hope so! (160 would be preferable, but I may adjust as I go...lol)
Thanks to a good friend, I will also have the help of Alli (begun today). For those who don't know, Alli is a pill that helps to block the absorption of some of the fat you consume. If you consume too much fat, Alli will want to get rid of it...leaving you to run for the bathroom (from what I've read lol) So basically you're forced to eat less fat and fewer calories.
My other goal is to walk at LEAST 30min a day. I began the couch to 5k training program a few weeks ago and I was doing okay, but my stamina is pretty bad and I was having some major shin splint pain. So for at least a few weeks I'm going to build my stamina by walking (and pushing a 30lb toddler in a stroller lol) and hopefully I can get back to the couch to 5k because I really liked it, it just hurt too much...and not in a good way.
I also have a daily food journal so I can keep track of everything I'm eating. I won't bore you all with my daily food intake, because no one really wants to read that LOL I think my big goal is to work on portion control. I don't think I eat bad things, I just think I eat too much. SO, to trick myself, I'll be eating out of smaller dishes, thinking I'm eating just as much as before. I know it sounds weird...but apparently it works LOL
SO...Here we go. No turning back this time...I refuse to be fat and nasty come June!
Thank you everyone for your support! I don't know if I'll update this daily, but at least weekly. I think I'll do a Sunday weigh-in each week.
