The day I started to lose

Posted by kaylajay on January 29th, 2012 |Filed Under Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Well, I decided against using the pills that I had mentioned in my previous post since I believe it should be a natural loss, I want to be proud of every pound I lose and not attribute anything to some pill I take.

In other news I joined weight watchers two weeks ago and am so far down 7.4 pounds! It’s working for me so far, I am proud of myself for the first time since I can remember. I lapsed a little bit this week, going back to my old ways while on vacation in Florida, but I managed to catch myself and am back on track. I love the accountability and that it helps me get back on track.

The gym is still a bit allusive for me, I haven’t gone at all this week but I did go for a long walk by the lake in Florida. I’ve been thinking about doing power 90 or p90x, since on my work days I don’t have the tenacity to make it to the gym. My roommate has a punching bag in our spare room so I have been considering youtubeing some boxing exercises and doing those.

I read about mini goals on the forums and they seem to help so here are mine-

total weight ; total weight lost – percentage
Starting weight – 259 pds
Current weight- 251 pds
*every mini goal met gets either a show here in vegas OR a mini road trip!*
246; 13 pds – this is my 5%
234; 25 pds – this is my 10%
221 ; 38 pds – this is my 15%
208; 51 pds – this is my 20%
Onederland- My personal favorite goal. back to where I said I would never get bigger than.
*Every mini goal met now gets shopping*
195; 64 pds – this is my 25%
182; 77 pds – this is my 30%
169; 90 pds – this is my 35%
159- 100 pds lost!!!! Re-evalutate goal to see if I want to keep losing
156;103 pds – this is my 40%
155- GOAL!

If I lose a steady 2 pds a week I will have reached my goal by this time next year. That seems like forever but if I had started getting serious about it when I started this blog I would already be there.. Can’t let another year go by.

    You are doing great!!! I just started doing Les Mills Pump that is by the same company that sells P90X and Power 90. I bought P90X but it was too much for me. I wasn’t in enough shape to do it. I have recently read about Power 90 and it seems like a good program. Im on day 5 of Les Mills Pump and hope that when I reach the end I’ll be able to do P90X. I also want to do the Brazillian Butt Lift workout. Sounds strange that I am looking at what exercise I’m going to do next. Ive never enjoyed exercising but I’m back into the swing of things now. Let me know how you like the Power 90 if you do it. I also started Shakeology. I’m really hoping to be in much better shape by the time I’m done with this 90 day program. I want to wear shorts this summer!!!!! Keep up the good work. I’m cheering for you!!!!!
