I took a full body picture of myself just now, just to see how I look today, because I still don’t have a full length mirror.

Let me give you some background info real quick.  In my closet are size 10 and size 8s. I can’t fit any of them, well some I can squeeze into but that’s not FITTING INTO them that’s squeezing into them!

Now my daughter always says oh mom you look great and my sweetie jokes alot about my weight, but doesn’t do it mean just when I say something like boy my butts big, but then he goes out and buys me a donut with custard last night!

I went and bought some size 12 work clothes and now this week they are tight!  Ok enough is enough.  I am so pissed that I let myself go after my hysterecomy 6 months ago, I’ve gained 20lbs in 6 months.  

So today is the day, I am starting my weight loss battle once and for all.  Starting a new lifestyle of eating better, cutting back on drinking, and exercising everyday and weight lifting for toning.  

Now it's going to take a while to get back where I was, but by Memorial Day I will, I WILL be 165lbs with 15lbs to go....I so mad that I must envoke my WON'T power that lies within me.   Not my WILL power but my WON'T power.  

That is I won’t over eat, I won’t forget to exercise, I just won’t eat entire bags of chips, I just won’t give up until I am back 150lbs.  The only WILL ....I will be stubborn about this!!!!

Weighing in today at 180lbs
Goal Weight 150lbs by July 4  

Yes that’s aggressive but if I don’t set high goals for myself I become very relaxed in my efforts, my dad always said, know thyself...

Thanks for listening.

    • Well it’s not that I don’t love myself, I don’t like the way I look and feel at this weight.  I have alot of ache in my knees and my back.  I know that I’m not being healthy and my body is telling me that.  At 150lbs I am at my best, no pain and no aches.  At 150lbs I probably look like someone that is 135lbs.  I carry my weight very well, but enough is enough LOL

    • How tall are you 3sa? I’m only 5‘3“. At 45 I weighed 188. I changed my eating habits and over 1 1/2 years lost 45 pounds. I’ve gained 8-10 back, but maintain pretty good in that range. Of course, that does not make me slim by any stretch of the imagination-but I’m much healthier and feel better. I know you will do it too!

    • I’m 5‘5 and 3/4, why don’t they just say 5‘6“.  The shameful thing about it is that I know how to lose weight and maintain weight, I just haven’t care to and look what my lazy azz did....:(

    • hey, it can happen to any body! But you’ve had your wake up call now. Time to stop beating yourself up and strengthen your won’t power! ;o)

      Do you have a plan in place? Do you mind sharing?

    • yes coachmom I have a plan in place.  One that has never failed me.  For weight loss I will be following a calorie shifting as shown in the graphic below.  I will follow the extreme weight loss first and then go to the plan under that one to maintain the 150lb.

    • I get and love your clever spin off of the dreaded “Willpower” of weight loss rules.  

      For what it’s worth, though, you might try to use more positive statements.
      I have found with myself and with my personal training clients that we become what is at the end of this sentence, “I am...”

      You have written, “I know that I'm not being healthy and my body is telling me that.”
      Perhaps you might begin today to say, “I know that I am now healthy and my body feels it,” or some such thing.  

      Call it Willpower, The Law of Attraction, “The Secret,” Affirmations, or good old-fashioned Positive Thinking, but positive reinforcement seemingly always beats the negative version. This mental work is the real exercise that we women must do daily to ensure fitness and health.  

      We become who we presently believe ourselves to be--it is hard to become a far-away self.  

      Just my 2C.
