First off, thank you all so incredibly much for the kind and loving words on my post about loose skin. I was worried about posting it, but all the responses made it worth it. I am amazed every single day that my story helps, inspires, and gives a lot of you someone to relate to. Thank you so, so much for sticking this all out with me and being awesome! I puffy heart every single one of you! xoxo
At my Weight Watchers meeting, my leader and I began the ‘goal weight’ talk. To become a Lifetime Member, my weight needs to be between 164 and 132. Beings that I weighed in at 170 this week, I am SUPER close to my healthy weight range.
Let me have that sink in a bit….
Holy crap, after almost 4 years of being on Weight Watchers, I am super close to my healthy weight range. *mind blown*
Alright, my mind is done being blown. Time to get to business! I’ve decided that I need to really get my shit together if I want to get goal. Which means none of this half-assing it stuff. No more tracking half the week, wimpy workouts, and just being lazy with it all.
I really started thinking about this all earlier this week, when I read a post from Ashley over at Coffee, Cake, and Cardio. She talked about what is keeping her at her current weight. She made a list of different things that are stalling her weight loss and has since posted it on her fridge. Which got me thinking about what is keeping me from hitting my goal weight.
It seems that over the last couple of weeks I have had sort of a mental block or something. I haven’t been giving the plan a full 100%, my workouts haven’t been as good as they could be, and I just got out of a routine. So, I decided that I needed to make my own list.
Obviously if I continue to do or not do these things, my goal weight will be further away. Quite frankly, I do not want that! I’ve been working incredibly too hard to not get there now and to get there much quicker because I’m not going to half-ass it anymore.
So, Mission: Goal is now in effect! I’ve set up a plan this week (my weeks with WW start on Thursdays) and I’ve decided to make this week my Simply Filling week. I am also aiming to earn 35 activity PointsPlus this week. Both of these things are taking some planning and extra work on my part.
Making a menu for Simply Filling was probably the most difficult and really made me think about food. It’s worth it though because I really feel like doing Simply Filling is going to help me pay attention to my hunger cues, which is something I haven’t really been doing. There are plenty of times where I’m just snacking because I have the PointsPlus allowance. So, I’m trying my best this week to really focus on those.
Earning 35 activity PointsPlus will be easy too if I start getting up at 5:15 in the morning again and putting in a full hour workout. I also need to make sure I’m moving more at work instead of plopping my butt down and not moving for hours at a time. I was doing good until I hurt my bicep/elbow, then I got too lax because I didn’t want to hurt myself again. Well, now I’m healed and taking the time to stretch what needs to be stretched, so there’s no reason I can’t go full force again!
Those are my plans of action for this week. I will rock it out!
I want to know, what is holding you back from hitting your goal weight?
