Fat Fighting Friday - W1

Okay friends... I have to get focused on my goal!

"The only difference between a wish and a goal is a PLAN."

I need to get a plan and follow it!
Today I was up 0.8. Ugh. Guess that is what happens when you change your weigh in day from the day after cardio to the day after weight lifting. Oh well, that is now behind me and I will move forward. I am frustrated that I am still up 2 lbs from my lowest weight in 2008 on 12/23.

I swear if yall hadn't been so kind about my picture that I posted on Tuesday I would be a puddle of tears. By the way, thank you for all of the complements! I almost didn't post the picture because my face was shinny (I had been to my weight lifting class right before the shower and just "freshened up"), my muffin top was hanging out (as always...), I thought I looked terrible and then yall were so very kind. So, thank you!

Alright, since the 20 in 20 worked out for me last time... I am going to use that goal and plan again. I have my work cut out for me because I am starting this as week 1 and I am up .8. I can do this... I will do this. When I reach 20 in 20 I will be 4 lbs below my max weight that WW says I need to weigh so I will be at LIFETIME when I finish this 20 in 20 mission! If I am counting right, June 12 will be week 20....just in time for me to buy a new swimsuit (last years will fall off...not pretty my friend, not pretty) to take on our vacation to the beach!

Okay, I NEED you to cheer me on again! Want to join my quest... let me know and I will cheer you on too!

I need to take a lesson from you and do a plan also. It's been really hard to get motivated since the holidays demolished my diet & exercise! I'm up about 2 pounds from my lowest...which means I have 18 lbs to go to get to my ultimate goal! Hang in there - you will do great!

Natalie said...

You can totally do that!!!! Good luck!

You have your plan girl...now go for it! Root, root, root!

Jen said...

YOU CAN DO THIS! You did it once and now you can do another 20!! I'm seriously SO Impressed at all you have done so far. I think and KNOW you look FANTASTIC and would have to say I can't see where you need another 20 lbs down. HOWEVER, I hate when people say that to me when I know I need to lose it b/c I find myself justifying! hee hee. I'm weird, I know. SO, I'll just say GO GO GO! You are doing awesome and you CAN totally do this!!!!!! I'd like to join you, but not sure where to begin. I mean I do WW, but I need to do something with exercise and am just lost. Anyways, keep up the great work. I wanna lose 20 lbs too! REALLY REALLY REALLY bad!

Stacy said...

You are doing fantastic! I join you this time. Maybe that's the motivation I need to start losing again! Keep up the great work.

I so need to join you Natalie! I haven't gained weight in January, but I need to get going! 20 pounds in 20 weeks is the perfect kind of goal.

But asking you to make this yer mantra:

kind of a visionboard through chant!

it will propel you forward---I promise.

Natalie, you have been so successful so far! I am amazed at your ability to perservere. You can do it and don't sweat about .8lbs. In the grand scheme of things that is no big deal. You are a girl, you do have hormonal changes all of the time. I think I would be more realistic and be worried about 3lbs.

Go get em you gym rat!
