GOAL UPDATE 2-15-13
Below is my original post regarding scale victories... I got to check another one off my list!!! I am now below 265! As of today I am 263.2! This is the lowest weight I have been since I moved to Las Vegas 3 and a half years ago. Feels great!
I also reached my short term goal of more than 40 lbs lost some time ago. I wish I would have remembered to update this post at that time.
I hit another goal of 50 lbs lost just two days ago
Next goal is to get at 250 (or below even better!) as soon as possible.
And long term to be in a much sexier shape for my vacation to Mexico this May!
I thought I would go over some short term goals that have been running through my head lately. I have already hit some and I want to remember and savor all these little moments in the months to come.
Short Term Goals
* Lose 40 lbs - I actually thought I would have done that by 2 months. However, I am going to reach this by this Friday, hopefully! (currently 37.8 lbs lost)
* Weigh below 265 - This is my most recent lowest historic weight: Feb 2011 right around the time I became pregnant! (Gained up to 337 with pregnancy..) Currently weighing in at 276.6. Obviously I plan on getting much lower than 265!!
I have a mental check list of previous weights I want to beat, and one I already have!. That brings me to my recent accomplishments that I want to recognize and remember.
1 - NSV ~ fit in my engagement and wedding ring. They are now very loose and once again spin freely :) Waiting til to size it as long as possible :-)
2 - SV ~ Beat lowest historical weight 1: 287! This was the lowest weight I could acheive post pregnancy. This was after months of diet and exercise before a trip to Cancun in May 2012. I beat the Hell out of it! Getting to 285 at 1 month post op (sw: 314)
Long Term Goals:
* Complete all 50 missions on Zombie, Run! Andoid app
* Complete couch to 5k
* Run 5k!!! Run For Your Lives obstacle course and music festival :) San Bernandino CA on September 28th of 2013!
* I plan on running my ass off and surviving all the way to the end!! Oh did I mention, its an obstacle course filled with ZOMBIES!!
------Weight Check List------
These are my most recent lowest "historical" weights. Each time I get below one of these weights, it will solidify the fact that I can beat the number on the scale and get to a healthy BMI.
Starting Weight: 314
287 - May 2012 (before Cancun, 1200 calorie diet and exercise) [DONE]
265 - Feb 2011 (After a weight loss contest at work... $50 a pound! Became pregnant at this weight. It is true what they say about being super fertil after losing weight) [DONE] - 2.13.13 264.2
247 - July 2008 (The 'eat once a day' diet along with tons of hours logged at the gym. After a a bad breakup...)
230 - Jan 2003 (This was my one time highest weight! I can't even imagine being that thin... I was able to get down from here... but gained so much back)
200 - Oct 2003 (Down from 230 - Low carb diet, walking 2 hours a day + 45 minutes of elliptical, weight training, and core training,)
185 - Summer, 2000 (Summer before senior year I decided to pretty much stop eating.. I somehow survived on dentine ice and aquafina with the occassional taquito from my favorite mexican restaurant mixed in there... this is the lowest weight I can remember being since 8 years old when I was 80 lbs.)
150 - This is the weight I hope to be someday, This would put me at the high end of healthy BMI for my height.
I have a good idea of where I am going, because I know where I have been ;-)
