Monica's (boricua3177) Weight Loss Journal
I am joining this group to get some motivation about my weight loss goals. I keep making resolutions, excuses & never really do anything about it. I will honestly say I don't really like the way I look. I feel fat, unattractive, & sloppy. I project how I feel about myself onto my DH (who has no problem with the way I look BTW). I know this is contributing to the decline in our sex life.
While on maternity leave, I lost 20lbs. I came back to work and started eating junk & gained every single pound back. I am ashamed of myself for that.
I want to lose weight but my actions don't match my words. I just don't understand it. I am aware that I am the only one that can do this, but yet I sabotage myself over & over again. That is the most depressing part, that I mess it up for myself every single time.
I went to the doctor in February and I weighed 214lbs, he said I should be weighing 140lbs. That's 74lbs I need to lose according to him. However, at 140lbs I think I look way too skinny. I am going to break it down into smaller goals. Here are my goals:
1. Lose 25lbs by September 1st (my sister's wedding)
2. Lose another 15lbs by Thanksgiving
3. Lose another 25lbs by My birthday (March 1st)
I think this is attainable, what do you think? Support & advice encouraged....
