For anyone to really drop some serious pounds.
You need single minded determination.
You need to place as much importance on the next bite of food as you did the last..
When you are excercising, stay in the moment.
Get the most out of each session.
Wake up each day thinking
"I am one day closer to where I want to be."
will either move you forward or take you backwards.
No half hearted walks followed by a cup of ice cream.
No crackers with butter.
No handful of anything at 11 because you are 'starving'.
No, you aren't...as the extra 20 pounds of fat around your middle will attest. lol.
That fat isn't there as an accessory.
That fat is now fuel.
Fuel for you to use, to win.
Calories in today 1400.
Exercise in at 715 calores burned (1 hour elliptical, upper body weights and 110 situps)
I am not weighing in...
that weird feeling of dread stopped when I stopped seeing the numbers fall.
For a while the scale was motivating me...then it was scaring me.
I have had a fear of being vulnerable for a long time.
I attach that fear to a certain number...139 and below.
So, I am done freaking myself out.
Tomorrow I am going to have my freind take a picture of me in very very tight clothes..I will post it.
Along with measurements.
Then I will post another on September 1rst along with measurements.
As for goal...I will know it when I see it...
and I haven't seen it yet.
When I look in the mirror and like what I see, I will step on a scale and tell you my 'goal weight.'
Till then it's doing the basics...till I get what I want.
See you tomorrow.
