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!
