I am changing my behaviors and I know this is a great challenge ahead of me, but I know the reward at the end will be worth it. And no, that reward is not just reaching some magical number on the scale, but I am seeking mental freedom more than just physical changes.
Freedom from guilt.
Freedom from shame.
Freedom from embarrassment.
Freedom from past habits.
Freedom from the reflection that I don't love.
I hope to obtain confidence and release of the mental anguish I have been experiencing about my self-image for more than two decades of my lifetime. That is a lot of wasted energy that I have to make up for.
This Week's Info:
Weight Change: I'm down .2 lbs. this week but it is that week of the month, so I'll take it :)
Total Difference: -4.2 pounds since post-Thanksgiving
Goal Progress: only 4.8 pounds to mini-goal #1 by 2/1/2012 which also happens to be my 1st goal for 2012
Notes: DH has decided to also join me for this new direction of lifestyle so look for periodical updates on him. I'm thrilled he is joining me because I think it will really help me attain my own goals. We will be tracking our intake and exercise online. Also, I hope to return to working out after work. I'm starting with the small goal of 30 minutes of cardio 3x a week. And, or course, water, water, water!
Join me along my journey.
