New Goals

Monday, August 03, 2015

So after a regain of almost 30 lbs., it's time to set some new goals.

First, I want to focus on the GOOD. I maintained my 100 lb. weight loss for THREE years. That is an accomplishment, and I can't lose sight of that.

After a couple of running injuries, and then depression that set in, I gained almost 30 lbs. of that back. As of now, my weight loss total is at 70 lbs., not 100. And that's OK. BUT. I want to get back to ME again. To get back to healthy. These bad habits have to stop.

Here are my new goals, set at a rate of losing 2 lbs. per week, which is honestly a faster rate than I normally lose, but I want to aim high, and I do think it's attainable.

I have had difficulty losing, and got blood tests done, and my thyroid is right on the border, some would say that I need to be on medicine, and I might need to be. I'm doing some research on that, but for now, will clean things up on my end of the street, and see how that goes.

    Life happens... You are still my inspiration! Maintaining for 3 years is awesome, and of course you CAN lose these 30lbs again.

    I love that you've set goals around holidays/events, Kathy! That is a fantastic idea! I am so happy to see that you're putting a positive spin onto this. I have no doubt that you'll get back to YOU! We've seen the same gain, and I'm aiming high for 2 lbs/week, too. I do have hypothyroidism and PCOS and I'm on meds, so I am also a slow loser, but it shouldn't deter us from shooting for the stars! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am in a boat beside you! But in my gaining 25 pounds in the last three years, I gained back all of the pounds I had lost. I don't know if I can accomplish the 2 pound a week though so am setting my goal at 1.5 pounds per week. Here's to us!!
