Travel as Motivation
Friday, April 24, 2015
I usually use an upcoming trip to motivate me to be diligent about tracking food so I can lose weight. I did really well this winter, lost 10 lbs before my trip to London/Paris.
Today I found out that the continuing ed conference my husband usually attends will be in Cancun this year. We will likely go.
I stuck the numbers in to the goal calculator here on SparkPeople and found out I have the exact right number of weeks to lose 28 lbs and be at my goal weight by the trip. IF I lose 1-lb per week. I did lose at that rate this winter, but historically I have lost much slower. And this year I have more oral surgery coming up and another surgery, so who knows what will happen?
I'm going to shoot for it, but not be too disappointed if I miss due to health reasons. I'm going to break it down into increments, looking at the total seems too overwhelming.
First goal: 10 lbs off by 4th of July.
