New Year = New Weight

By HappySkinnyGirl

Last year starting weight: 162.0lbs/73.5kg/11.6 stones
This year starting weight: 156.6lbs/71.1kg/11.2 stones
Remaining to lose after today: 43 lbs/ 19.5kg/ 3.1 st

My new year started with toothache and a root canal trouble but I hope the rest of year will be more peaceful. I’ve lost some of the weight I gained during Christmas and New Year’s week so my weight loss is progressing forward. I gave away my TV a little bit too soon so I haven’t been able to do Jillian’s Fitness ultimatum. I’m still waiting for my new TV to arrive. I could go for a walk, but I’m freezing so much. Maybe it has to do with some of the fat that I shed?

My first milestone is to lose 5kg/11lbs. I’ll continue doing what I’m doing, eating mostly healthy food and exercising on my Wii to keep my body fit and alert. I’m visualizing how my waist is shrinking and getting smaller while I’m training. I believe 80% of the time should be more focus on eating healthy rather than exercising too hard. After so many false starts I’ve finally learned what weight loss is about and I can see it more clearly now.

Stay healthy and don’t forget to breath and enjoy life once in a while πŸ™‚

    5 kgs/11 pounds is a reasonable first milestone. Good luck with achieving this goal of yours. How will you be doing it?

    I know that you will reach any goal that you set. There is no failing because even if you set a goal of, say 10 pounds, but loose only 5 pounds, you have lost 5 pounds which is the important part…that’s a WIN in my book!

    “I believe 80% of the time should be more focus on eating healthy rather than exercising too hard.”

    This I find interesting and am going to have to think about how these percentages could apply to me.

    Sabs, I’ll be keeping my portion small and my last big meal on the day is at 4pm. When cravings kick in, I’ll eat something that is healthy and filling about 100 calories.

    Bobby, Any percentage is fine, as long as we’re progressing forward to 80%-90% level πŸ™‚

    Good job on your progress. Also, thanks for the encouragement, I appreciate it a lot. You are doing great. Sorry for the teeth. Those types of things hurt a lot. Getting rid of the TV eh? I have not had TV for about 8 years now. I had a class in college and in that class the teacher showed us research that said the average person spent around 13 years watching TV by the time they died. I just though, “Think of what I could do if I had an extra 13 yrs worth of time.”

    jason, that’s incredible figures! I never had a TV when I was a kid, but now it has become sort of a way to relax.

    I definitely agree that the food is 80% of the battle.
