Long Time, No Post(s)

Long Time, No Post(s)

Wow! It's hard to believe how long its been since my last post. So much has changed since then, I don't even know where to start. Yet at the same time, I feel as if I am still battling the same issues as in my previously outdated posts.  Summer is half over, and once again I have failed to reach my ideal body.  No surprise there.  However, I honestly think that I could, with a whole lot of hard work and determination be where I need to by the first day of fall semester.  So, the first thing I will need to address, is a new game plan and a realistic goal. 

 Obviously anyone that knows me knows I have struggled with my weight and body image for my whole life.  Never before have I even considered keeping a daily or weekly blog to track my progress and record the many hurtles that go along with weight loss. Until now.  I know this is going to be hard, but I am sick of hating the way I look. I probably shouldn't weigh-in every day, but at this point I believe that that is the only way I will be able to hold myself accountable.  With that in mind, I think its only fair to post every day that I weigh in...Yup you read that right. A blog post to go along with each weigh in.  But before we get to that I will need to set some realistic goals for myself. 

GOAL 1: Have a BMI of 20% or less

GOAL 2: Be able to run 8 miles before the end of the summer

GOAL 3: Weigh between 140 and 135 pounds by the start of fall semester

GOAL 4: Feel confident in a bikini

GOAL 5: Learn to love vegetables

GOAL 6:  Avoid all pop, candy, desserts, and sweets until Goals 1 & 3 are reached.

Now that that is out of the way, the research begins on what is the best way to get rid of all of the excess fat that has accumulated in my midsection.  I will try to post pictures, ect. whenever I get time this summer. Pictures may not be available until early to mid August. Until tomorrow. :)
