Feeling better after reading and looking at motivating things......

Check out the new pink and blue picture on my sidebar! Isn't that an amazing and motivating picture! I have always considered my extra weight a sort of prison.I am picturing the REAL me trapped inside of this extra padding.I just need to shed the weight to SEE ME lol.

Anyhow I am writing out a goal plan because:

1.I like(no, LOVE) planning.There is just something about getting everything planned and written down that is SO encouraging!!!

2.I think that getting small goals written down will make my task not seem so HUGE.

3.I want to plan certain rewards for myself when I reach my goals.

SO,here is how I am going to do it.......I am going to divide the weight I have to lose up between all of my children lol.I know the weight I was before conceiving all of them lol.I will start from 230 since I gained a few pounds (SUCH A BUMMER).

My GOAL weight is 140 and that means I need to lose 90 pounds!!!!! (CRY) Can that REALLY be true?

That is pretty much 13 lbs per child that I put on.

SO I will work backwards and lose the weight from Titus first and eventually work up to losing Silas'! lol (Now that is some old weight! lol)

Goal #1-217 (Titus's weight GONE) By Feb 12
Goal #2-204 (Isaac's weight GONE) By Mar 18
Goal #3-191 (Ezekiel's weight GONE!) By April 22
Goal #4-178 (Tobias' weight GONE!) By May 27
Goal #5-165 (Patience's weight GONE!) By July 1
Goal #6-152 (Vashti's weight GONE!) By Aug 5
Goal #7-140 (Silas' weight GONE!) By Sept 25

I would love to have the weight gone by Titus's first birthday.That is over 8 months or aprox 37 weeks and I need to lose 2.5 lbs a week from here on out to do it.I think it is possible and a healthy rate if I am SERIOUS about it.

So,this is my plan........!

  1. I am happy to read this update! I think the plan you have is great! :) What a good idea. However... 25 pounds a week is insane! (LOL! Your font just makes it look like that... I knew what you meant!)

    I am sorry you gained. I'm not sure how that happened. I lost 2 pounds- and you didn't eat any more than I did. :( That would be discouraging... but it looks like you know it's not the "end all". Keep your chin up. Keep working... and just look ahead... those goals seem very "do-able". I'm here cheering you on!
