New year, new attitude; and the 5 goals

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Hello all! Happy New Year!

I'm back on SP and I have a feeling this is the one that's going to stick. There are so many lovely things I'd like in the next few years (I'd like to get married, have kids, get promoted), and these are things I'd prefer to do at a healthier weight. Having tried and failed a fair few times I now know just what works for me (consistency, using SP regularly, lots of fruit and veg and water, rest) and what doesn't (making excuses, 'quick fixes').

So the journey begins once more. This time I've broken the journey down into 5 stages....to be fair if I make it the 3 and quit, I'm fine with that, but I need to wrestle my BMI down to below 30, for sure. The goals are:

SW: 245
GW 1 (10% BW lost): 220
GW 2 (in the 100s for the first time in 7 years): 199
GW 3 (BMI below 30, making me overweight rather than obese!): 179
GW 4 (BMI below 27.5, getting there!): 164
GW 5, final goal (BMI below 25, 'normal' weight): 149

Today's weight: 240

A long way to go, but slow and steady wins the race, I hope!

Right, I have a hot date with some stomach crunches!

    Having tried and failed a few times now.....

    ...there are certainly many of us that can relate to THAT! The good thing is that we try more times than we fail, and one of those times (this time) we'll stick to it!

    Good luck, I'm beginning to realise its a lifelong adjustment and there are no short cuts! You are so right, slowly and steady does it. emoticon
