Weigh-in Wednesday ~ tammi

Sisterhood of the Shrinking JeansAll right, here we go!

New year, new decade, new opportunities...

...same old self-control issues!
Dang it.

Not surprisingly, I gained some weight over Christmas holidays. From my last reported weigh-in three weeks ago, I'm up three pounds. From my lowest weight ever (December 9/09), I'm up 4.2 lbs. Not insurmountable.

I intend to have those pounds PLUS two more gone by the end of the month. My goal for the end of this challenge is a total of eight, which will bring me to 151.

It will mean hard work. It will mean eliminating routine daily snacking. It will mean sweatin' to the only cardio work-out DVD I have on days when I can't walk outdoors. It will mean no second helpings ~ EVER. It will mean no more routine suppertime desserts. In short, it will require a LOT of self-discipline. Something I seem to practise only periodically.

But I'm determined. I've been pretty slack for the last six months ~ my cumulative weight loss for July through December is a measely 2.8 pounds, thanks for the most part, to Christmas ~ and it's time to re-engage myself. I've only been this close to my goal weight once before in my married life and this time I intend to go all the way. My plan is to hit 140 by the end of May.

THIS. IS. MY. YEAR.
