Goalgetter2013 – November

Okay, we need to slow the calendar down some. Fall is my favorite season and I want it to last. I want to enjoy it. I don’t want to wish it away like I do the summer time. And is this really my 11th #goalgetter2013 post for the year?

For November, I have decided I have to focus on my weight loss. I gave myself a full year to lose weight and I have been doing great, losing weight slow and steady. All of a sudden, the end of the year is two months away and I have to buckle down if I’m going to hit that goal in 8 weeks time.

Because I like to focus on small goals along the way, I am setting a couple for this month…

So, what does this mean? Well, it means I need to be a little more diligent with my tracking, measure my portions every single time, and do my best to eat fruits and veggies when I can to help balance out this amazing season of food. That will be the hard part…. Thanksgiving is my favorite meal of the year.

Here is a graph showing where I’m at, as of last week’s weigh-in on 10/26/13.

My weight loss has been pretty consistent. Obviously there have been gains along the way. All journeys have their ups and downs, right? Weight loss is no different. However, since I’ve been training for my half marathon, I’ve had a few more gains and fewer losses. Since not training is not an option, I am still trying to find balance of eating enough as I am hungrier from more activity.

Going back to WW on January 1st, and weighing in at 178, my highest weight EVER, was overwhelming to say the least. Now that I am more than half way – just 13.6 pounds away (as of the last weigh-in) – I know I can do it. I know I have it in me.

I WILL hit this goal. This progress picture I shared back in July is proof of how far I’ve come and I am dying to add another one to it… 2013 has been all about weight loss and I want 2014 to be all about maintaining!

  1. Wow, your graph is pretty impressive – you’ve been doing outstanding! I’m trying to set a weight loss goal this month too. In your experience what’s an ambitious but reasonable monthly weight loss goal?

    Good luck on your November goals!!

    1. Hi Lisa! That is a great question. I try to average 1-2 pounds a week. Slower is better and you are less likely to gain it back. I have weeks where I lose more and then some where I gain, but it’s about a 1 – 2 pound a week average. Best of luck to you!

  2. Nanci- I know what you mean. But really muscle weighs heavier than fat. So it will slow down. If you’re workout is making you ravenous though u might want to rethink your schedule. I have to agree with what others have said, you are doing really great. And in the end the changes you are making are lifelong. I don’t think you will ever not exercise now. That’s huge!!!!

    1. I hope you are right. This year has been the longest that I have remained active. It doesn’t seem right to NOT run. Even if I haven’t been training for a race, I’ve still run. And you’re right, muscle does weigh more than fat. I just have my eye on that goal. As always, thank you so much for following along and your input. It is so appreciated!

  3. […] Last month, I went back to my weight loss goals, as the end of the year is now quickly approaching. I felt it was important to really focus on it since that has been my main goal for the whole year. As a reminder, this was the goal I set for November… […]

  4. I believe you have offered me some what to think about with your post.
    Your insight within this subject has really impressed me.

    Most of us go through great trouble to get
    the healthy tanned look and even more pains to keep it for as long as we possibly
    can. Dihydroxyacetone also has an effect on the amino acids and nucleic acids which is bad for the skin [ Most people lather on the fake tan before stepping out into the real sun, and ironically, that’s the problem. brush ( Superdrug and Avon supply great ones cheaply). Other methods of maintaining a pale complexion included avoiding exposure to sunlight, wearing full length clothing outside and using parasols. However, there is no reason you can’t successfully apply a great looking self-tan at home. Although if the person uses a daily moisturiser after application then they will see their tan lasting up to a couple of days longer. The Loreal Self Tanning Spray known as L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Pro Perfect Salon Airbrush Self Tanning Mist is a great product. Care should be taken while applying the spray to ensure that it does not fall on your hands and feet because you can get a white vein like look due to the presence of excess wrinkles and creases in these areas. This will help to saturate your skin, thus making the spray tan fade more slowly.
