I am totally freaking out about it, even though I obviously need to know where I stand… (which is ginormous, so bleh). It needs to be done. I had a physical in December (where I found out about my current health problems) so I know about where I stand weight-wise… just not with the measurements. Luckily, my weight was about 10 lbs or so lower than my highest weight ever (a number I hope I NEVER EVER see again… unless it’s from a slot machine).
I haven’t decided if I want to post the numbers here or not. I’m leading towards yes, as mortifying as that will be. It’s all about accountability.
As for health goals… I plan to give myself little goals along the weigh way along with rewards such as new clothes, a new book, new workout attire and the occasional splurge. Let’s be honest. When you lose weight, you want to reward yourself with a 1500 calorie piece of cheesecake. Am I right people? Be honest and I know you’ll agree. Unless you’re one of those skinny beyotches. And in that case, you can stick it.
I plan to mark the following milestones:
- weight loss in intervals of 5
- % of weight loss in intervals of 5
- inches lost (combined)
