Another thing I know that will help me in my "make me happy" quest is to lose weight. I have been steadily gaining the pounds throughout 2008 and up until last night didn't have the drive or motivation to stop myself. But I weighed myself yesterday and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I'm officially thee heaviest I have ever been! I've tipped the scales 1lb over my 2003 fat weight and I hate it. I. Hate. It. ='( I have a plateau weight of 8lbs lighter than I am now, so that should be easy to reach. But my target weight, the same weight I was when I was 18 years old, is going to prove a challenge. I've managed it before though, back in 2004, and I plan on getting there again.
So after giving myself a good old kick up the backside, I decided that I want to lose 22lbs (10kg) but I'm not sure what a realistic target time would be. Some people have suggested aiming to lose one pound per week; others two pounds. 22 weeks seems too long... So I left the deciding up to my trusty Wii Fit. It suggested I aim for 3 months so that's what I'm gonna do. Let the countdown begin!
I'll get some measurement and weight loss charts designed for the sidebar of this blog so you can all track my progress. Wish me luck!!!
