Well I went back to my very first post to see if I did anything I really had set out to do. My first goal of many was to weigh 180 lbs by mid-summer. Well that didn’t happen then or now. I made 187, but not by mid-summer, by years end. Disappointing, sorta. Another goal was to get rid of some fat. Well that I did, 50” worth. So that’s not bad. Went from a size 22 to a 16. I wanted a stronger back, that has happened. That is wonderful, no more pain pills every days. I wanted help, input, words of wisdom and more and boy did I get that. I joined challenges, blogs hops, met friends, made friends and have learned tons of stuff.
Today while reading a friend of mine JW she had some posts that really spoke to me. Integrity and Weight Loss and Accepting Flaws and Be Genuine / Live with Integrity. Honesty is the policy. I know this but I haven’t been the most honest to myself. Oh I know that 38 lbs isn’t something to put down but I know that if I had put my all into it, I could of made my goal. I didn’t, I took time off here and there, I screwed up here and there. So that means, instead of 2010 being my year, It’s just the beginning. 2011 will be the year that I meet my goal, learn to live healthy and stay that way.
I keep pushing around the idea of Allan's Phase 4, SSDDDC.
I have been afraid of it. I have been hanging on to the last three challenges by the skin on my teeth and this challenge will really be the make or break one. My heart wants to do it, my mind thinks I shouldn’t, my body knows it needs to. According to Allan’s Phase 4 I can make my new goal by our 31st anniversary. That’s in April. I want to do this!!!
So my goals for 2011 are going to look like this….
1. Be at my goal weight, 165 by April 25th.
2. Walk 400 miles in 2011.
3. Be able to jog a full 5K in October.
4. Put on my wedding dress and my first Christmas dress.
5. After hitting my goal weight to learn to maintain it for a life time.
I can do this, I know I can. I KNOW I CAN!!!
