166.8 and the Last Time You Will See Me Like This

That was the number that popped up on the scale on Monday when I stepped on. I honestly wanted to cry. This battle I have been going through over the last year with my weight is just about to drive me nuts.

So  — I am going to document my weight loss. I am serious this time. Over the past 5 months, I have managed to put back on 10 pounds and I feel horrible. I am making changes now that will reflect me for the rest of my life.

Losing Weight Jan 2014 166.8

Just looking at this picture makes me mad at myself. How did I allow myself to get to this point? I don’t know — but I am sick of it and it is time to make some changes.

How am I making those changes?

  • Drinking more water
  • watching what I eat
  • Exercising more

Those are the three main components of how I intend on getting fit in 2014.

Losing weight 166.8 January 2014

I set myself some goals for January. I think by setting the goals for myself, it will be easier to achieve. There are three main goals that I am working towards —

  • Losing 10 pounds this month
  • Eating a healthy dinner every single night
  • Exercising at least 3 times per week

Workout Clothes

For my splurge this month, I got a new set of workout clothes to help get me in gear. Next month, if I meet my goal weight, I will be getting me a new dress for my splurge.

For my food, I am using the yummy meal plans I have found at eMeals  (you can check out this yummy breakfast recipe I made yesterday morning).

    I weigh more than I ever have and it’s a terrible feeling. I always set unrealistic goals and expectations and then fail miserable. I feel like this time I’m actually taking some steps that I can commit to long-term…eating more healthy, clean food choices and less calories per day (instead of crash dieting), keeping track of my food intake using My Fitness Pal, and I joined a gym for the first time (it’s one that is very low-key and I feel pretty comfortable with). Good luck to you in your journey.

      Me too Kari. I seriously need to start doing a lot of soul searching and figuring out this whole weight loss thing.
