Don’t you just love that title? I can’t take credit tho – it’s a motto of a friend of mine named Luke who is in grade 2. (I love that my BFF’s kids have mottos to live by!) As Luke wisely knows you gotta set a goal to achieve a goal.
I left 2016 with 20 lbs less than I started and I fought for every one of those pounds and lost some of them 2 or 3 times! I was 20 lbs down by July and then went up and down a few pounds at a time while I went through some struggles with my health but my last weigh in of the year showed that 20 lbs was gone!
For 2017 I have set myself some fresh goals:
- get down 20 lbs (from my 2017 starting weight)
- no sugar in my coffee or tea (so far so good!)
- 100 yoga classes
- 52 swims
- maintain my great eating habits
- stick with Weight Watchers
In 2016 my journey was about changing what I ate: increasing vegetables and fruit and decreasing portion size. I was eating too much. My health was poor and I lost that 20 lbs without doing any cardio exercise.
This year, with improved health (thanks pacemaker) I will add swimming to the mix and increase my fitness.
