Ok, I broke the 215 plateau just to find it again. So, I'm back at 215 second week in a row. BUT, I have had alot going on physically between surgery on my arm and then oral surgery that didn't go as smoothly as planned...I'm just glad I'm still there, actually.
However, I have decided to set some goals up for myself to reach by the new year. I'm not going to go crazy and try to drop a ton of weight just to be disappointed. I'm going to be realistic and see how I do.
1). I see my psych. on the 29th she is supposed to get me off one med that is NOTORIOUS for weight gain.
2.) if she gets me off of that I will still have to battle ONE drug that is also known for weight gain but atleast it will be more of a fair fight.
3.) Right now, I have lost 5lbs. taking both so I believe I can do it!
4/) my first goal that I have set is to start journaling what I eat, why I'm eating (hunger, depression, anxiety, impulse, emotional)
5.) I want to exercise for 40 min. a day 6 days a week. Not a far stretch from what I'm doing.
6.) Every 2 days I want to review my journal and see where I can improve
7.) I want to buy more fruits and veggies at the grocery store and eat and use them.
8.) I want to make this a family journey to good health
9,) I want to quit smoking--working on that
10.) pound wise--I would be happy with a pound a week--ecstatic with 2 a week. I hope once that med is gone 2 may be possible.
11.) So I guess ultimate goal weight by 12/31 would be to lose about 4.3 lbs or 8,6 if all goes well. Basically, I would love to lose 10lbs. my XMAs..I swear that would make me cry!
So, those are my goals pertaining to my weight. Oh, don't worry, I have many more, like save money, stop buying clothes cuz you're losng weight, and stop buying handbags, I've got too many!
Thanks for reading!
