The ongoing battle
So I wanted to do a quick blog about weight. I got inspired by the ex hotgirl to blog more about the battle. I've been struggling to get down to a size that I am happier with for what...the past 2 years? I mentioned before that I had lost 12 pound since about a year ago. This is a great success, but realistically...1 pound per month? Pathetic. I can do better than that! My motivation now comes from the fact that I want to look awesome in our elopement pictures and fit into a smaller dress! And hello, I also want to have a better beach body for the trip itself. After weighing myself this morning, I am back down to my pre-Europe weight (which luckily I only gained 3 pounds while in Europe). I hope to be down another 10 pounds at least by March 2010. I started training (again) for another 5k that I hope to do in December. I'm going to make efforts to post at least weekly about the weight loss/journey to healthiness. One day I'll get down to my goal weight. I figure that once I get there, then it'll be more about maintaining. I can maintain as long as I keep up with somewhat regular working out. So...the journey begins again (bc it dissipated after/during Europe) to make working out and eating healthy a part of my lifestyle.
