I have three commitments I have made to myself for this week:
- I will work out 4 times before my mom comes to visit on Thursday night. Jazzercise on Monday & Thursday and CrossFit on Tuesday & Wednesday. This is completely doable, I just have to quitting breeding lazy.
- I will follow the food plan I have set for myself. I have everything I need to have a healthy week. I just have to choose to eat it.
- I will NOT tank myself while my mom is here. My mom is also trying to lose a few pounds after a summer of traveling, so there should be no excuse not to eat healthy while she is here. We have a bad history of enabling each other, but I have every confidence that we can do the right thing!
I have two trips coming up: my 20th high school reunion and BOOBs. I WANT to shop for new outfits for both, but I have plenty of clothes in my closet. Heck, if I lose 10 pounds, I have a GORGEOUS wardrobe. :-) Maybe while mom is here, we can pick out some outfits for me to take. I know I have some fun dresses that I have been wanting to wear so this is perfect!
Losing weight is hard. Losing 85 pounds in the first year after being banded took so much commitment and dedication. Since that time, I have enjoyed my new life, but I have been lax. If I am going to lose 30 pounds which is what I want to do, it is going to take that same commitment and dedication. Actually, it might take more. While there is no "end", I do know that I'm decent at maintenance. However, LOSING takes a lot more OOMPH than maintenance. Time to get it done.
One week down. Let's see what I can do for week #2!
