I think this is an appropriate moment to start chapter two of my journey. I have, as mentioned in my last post, fallen off the wagon and am ready to get back on. I am done taking a break! I am getting back to work!
I feel that I need to start a whole new chapter of this journey. Chapter one was about starting something new, putting myself first, and kick starting my “new” me. It was My Time and I needed believe it. Now that I truly do believe that this is My Time I need to own My Time!
I am moving into the chapter of my journey that focuses on becoming stronger and pushing my limits. I need to do this as I am hitting plateaus and need to move on. I have become comfortable, which is being demonstrated both on the scale and in my attitude. As I have learned from reading other blogs and hearing other weight loss journeys…. when you get comfortable in your journey, its time to switch it up, especially so that I can make it to my goal.
Being comfortable with myself was something that I had no problem with when I was 327 pounds. I want however to be comfortable at my goal weight as a fit and active young adult. Until I reach that goal I want to make myself as uncomfortable as possible so that I stay motivated and keep on pushing towards this me.
This is what I am going to do (and no it is not just by doing another monthly challenge). I am prepared to do what I need to for getting to my goal. I am going to eat on my meal plan 100%. I am going to do 2 a day workouts for 5 days and 1 workout on the other days. These will be a mix of cardio and weight training. I will be tweeting and blogging about my progress and I will be pushing my self to my limits. I am ready to make myself uncomfortable again. I am worth it.
I weighed in at 300.6 pounds this morning and would like to be at 260 in 10 weeks, an average of 4 pounds a week (ambitious I know). I thank you for your continued support in following my journey and look forward to hearing more about your journeys and accepting your encouragement hearing your comments.
Let’s get this done!!
