Today has been another great day. Its 9.15pm Eastern Time and I still have 7 points left. I'm worried about that as I think I do better at this when I eat all my points. I'm going to try to listen to my body though and see how hungry I feel.
Today my wonderful friend Amy took my hubby out shopping for my up coming birthday. So sweet of her as hubby doesn't drive.
Here we are together, just a few weeks ago. We combined, are KAmy. Just like Brangelina! We have a lot of fun together. She is an awesome friend I will be sad to leave here in the USA when we move back.
So I was chilling for a couple of hours and was all dressed in workout clothes ready to try my "Dancing with the Stars" (aka strictly come dancing dvd.) But they arrived back literally as I was hitting the play button! But I still managed to do it!
I did make the mistake of doing it hungry, but I managed 20 minutes of trying the different styles of dance, such as the paso doble and the jive. It was fun. I think I may have to hit the gym to tho to make sure I'm getting enough cardio. Considering we have a little gym in our apartment complex about a 1 minute walk away I have no excuse.
So Amy and I decided to go to the movies, to see 'My Sister's Keeper' - a book I have read twice as it is by my favourite author, Jodi Picoult. I feel like (although it has only been two days) that this was my first big challenge.
I always take or buy something to munch on, or get popcorn. Not today. I could have easily resumed my old mentality of 'well it's just one time' and use the cinema trip as a reason to eat junk. Not this time. I took a little bag of grapes. Yep grapes. I did buy a diet coke and also an iced fruit bar (iced lolly) which was 1.5 points and make with real strawberries. It tasted so good.
I felt like this was a show of how dedicated I am. I feel better inside and out and it has barely been 3 days.
Ok, onto weigh in. I've been hopping on and off the scales out of routine. Tomorrow morning I will weigh officially. I weighed myself after the beach trip this past weekend.
The results were 237lbs or 16st 9.
I will use this as my start weight. It's hurting me becasue a couple of months ago I got down to 220lbs and 15st 7.
From now on I will weigh on Friday or Saturday morning.
I would like to lose 82lbs, to make me 11 stone 1. I worked that out over a year to be 1.5lbs a week. Maybe, just maybe it is doable. Or close to do able.
I want and need to be a healthy BMI/Weight for my height as above.
This time next year I want to be wearing a bikini on the beach.
I have to begin with my 10% goal. This will be 23lbs loss. or 1 stone 9lbs (edited as I made a mistake the first time)
I hope I can get there. I'm damn well gonna try. And truthfully, I'm excited.
