I realized this weekend - I have 4 months until my daughter's wedding. I want to be below 200 lbs. - that means I need to lose at least 5 lbs a month.
Looking over the last year I am only 9 lbs lower than what I was on April 1, 2011. It doesn't seem like much. My sister said today that she has lost 40 lbs since Jan 1 (she has been on the Metabolic Research Center diet). I was happy for her, but a little depressed. I have worked so hard this last year with my trainer - I thought I would have lost more weight. I am encouraged though when I look at my NSV - I am in a smaller dress size. Last year I was a size 24, today I am a size 18-20. I've lost a total 12.25 inches and 7.4% body fat.
This last month have been very rough. I have only been at the gym once a week. This week not at all. One week, I had a "meltdown" and basically ate my way through brownies and homemade banana bread which resulted in a weight gain. I have struggled with being tired all the time. My schedule went crazy with new daycare kids. I stopped my daily Bible reading...I still was doing my women's Bible study.
But this is a new month......a new start. I am involved in team challenges: The Biggest Loser Spring and the Spring 5%. Another team CCW has a streak challenge starting today. I also joined the BLC19 that will start April 25. I am making some new goals for the month. Also one thing I know I need to do is blog every day to keep myself accountable.
1. Blog daily:
--Gym 3x's a week
--Minimum 30 min a day
3. Snacks -- one freggie snack a day
4. Read Bible chronologically daily
