I reached my final goal in November 2011. This is me today at 135 lbs.:
This was me about 1/2 way through… I was around 190lbs.
In addition to setting goals, I also had to learn what I needed vs. what I wanted. Monica and Jess have talked about wants vs. needs in decorating. Well, I may have wanted to go out to my favorite restaurant for a big burger and fries, but I truly didn’t need a big burger and fries. See the difference? I know, I know…it still seems like it is a willpower thing. But it really isn’t. It’s looking at my plan. If I want to weigh 10 lbs. less in 6 weeks, a burger and fries isn’t what I need. Does it mean I will never be able to have a burger and fries? Not at all. But right now, that isn’t part of the plan.
Bottom line, I am not here to tell you what to do and how to do it. I am merely trying to tell you that you CAN do it. Do what works for you. Do what you know you need to do. Even if you don’t have to lose weight, it is still important to fuel your body with healthy, nutritious foods. And it is so important to take some time out of your day to get moving. Find something that you enjoy and get moving!
