While I knew I dipped into a few more holiday / new years eve treats than I should have, I didn't expect that result. Thinking back, I should have expected exactly that. Even though I was getting in some exercise, it wasn't as determined an effort as I was putting in last spring, summer & fall. Simple math right? Take in more calories than you burn off will result in weight gain 100% of the time.
The positive mind within me finds victory in this weigh-in however. Over the past month-and-a-half which covered the holidays I was STUCK. I didn't pack on 10-15 pounds of holiday cookie wight which I've done many a year. I didn't sit idle on my butt giving zero consideration to exercise which I've done many a year. So compared to those many other years the 2010 holiday eating season was victorious.
My aim remains to weigh 199 pounds or less in life, and that will happen in 2011.
My intent remains to lose 1.5 pounds a week, assuming I do just that I'll reach 199 by the end of September.
My stretch aim would be to weigh 199 by the end of June when we depart for a Hawaiian vacation.
My intent needs to amp up to lose 2.25 pounds a week for that to happen.
In 2010 I came to know some important and cool abilities which I possess:
I know how to lose 1.5 pounds a week...
I know how to eat healthy...
I know how to exercise with purpose...
I know 2011 is going to be another great year, just as 2010 was.
Responsibility 199 - Gotta Do It!!
