So I had my weigh in this morning. I feel defeated, angry, depressed, and frustrated. All at myself. I’ve got no one else to blame but myself. My weigh-in was 164.4. That’s basically 3 pound gain from last week. THREE POUNDS! Geez, Jamee, get on it! If I continue a 3 pound gain throughout the holidays, I’m in big trouble. I don’t know why I can’t seem to get my act together. I mean I can look through the past year of posts and can’t count on both hands the number of posts I have about my weight and wanting to lose. This is NOT the example I want to set for my daughter. I have seen my family struggle with weight my entire life and that is not what I want for Abby. I want Abby to see her mom model a healthy lifestyle and making good food choices and making exercise a priority.
One thing I am going to do to try to help stay motivated is make smaller goals. Looking to see that I’ve got close to 40 pounds to lose is intimidating so I’m going to try to aim for smaller pieces to the larger goal. So here we go….At my last orthodontist appointment, my doc let me know that I would probably have my braces off in three months (woo-hoo!) so my goal is to lose 15 pounds by the time I get my braces off. 3 months – 15 pounds – basically 5 pounds a month. I can handle that!
Starting weight: 164.4
3 month goal: 149.4
