It's that time of year again!
We all want to lose weight, eat healthy, get fit, and just feel better.
Last year I organized a biggest loser competition where I work. We all paid 10 dollar to enter and a dollar each week that we gained weight. Every Friday for about 8 weeks we did this.
I lost about 10 pounds last year, which I was happy with, but haven't lost a single pound since then.
Today we start again.
Losing weight is sooooo difficult for me. I love food!
I always joke that I don't eat to live, I live to eat!
One of my goals for the year is to lose 20-30 pounds. My plan of attack is to work out 3 or 4 times a week, using my Couch to 5K app and counting my calories using MyFittnesspal app. I'm trying to be more realistic with my goals. I always feel like I should be losing 2-3 pounds a week, but I'm going to be satisfied with 1 pound a week. As long as the numbers are going down I will be happy.
I'm going to do my best not to be obsessive about it. I'm only going to weigh once a week.
And for extra accountability, I'm going to keep y'all updated on my progress each week.
This weeks weight: 194 pounds
I'm not quite brave enough to post a picture of myself in biker shorts and sports bra like some bloggers. It took a lot just to post my weight for the world to see.
Posting pictures takes some serious guts, that I don't have.
Have a good weekend and eat a piece of chocolate cake for me!!
