I'm on day 500 of my journey....and nowhere near where I want to be - in fact, I'm, basically, starting over, at this point, and that's frustrating, but that's okay. Yes, I have gained weight back, and I've struggled alot for the last year, but I haven't given up - not once. For almost 14 years I sat on my butt and didn't try to fight my obesity, at all, but last year I started eating better, and exercising, and I did lose weight. Unfortunately, I lost a bit of my fight and drive, but I have never given up, completely. I've just had trouble doing everything I need to do - I slack on one thing or the other. I will either exercise, but not eat great. Or I will eat good, but not exercise. I just can't half ass it like this anymore because it doesn't work, obviously!
Today was a good day, and what a great day to start again - Day 500. There's only 231 days left in 2012 - this year will be over before I know it, and I hope to end this year on a much healthier, and much thinner, note. I haven't set a long term goal in a long time, so maybe it's time. On day 731 of my weight loss journey (which will be Dec. 31st) I will be down 66 pounds from today, which means I have to lose 2 pounds a week, which is, totally, doable, IF I do what I'm suppose to do. So, that's my long term goal for the year. My short term goal - my very, very short term goal - is to focus on tomorrow. My plans for tomorrow:
Walk 2 miles
Do an upper body dumbbell workout
Track my food - keep my calories under 1300
Drink 120 ounces
