So here goes. I have a weight loss goal of 30 lbs. I think this should put me at a nice healthy 135 lbs with some good muscle definition. It's a weight that I think is reasonable given my age (26) and body type. In high school I was hanging out around the 110 lb zone which is think is pretty much impossible (and unsafe).
I will post some nice (and by "nice" I really mean "makes me want to run and hide and never show my face in public again") before photos that show how I look currently. Everybody loves weight loss photos! I know that I love to look at the success stories and see what they looked like before they lost all that weight and go "wow...is that even the same person?" I figure that I will like doing this about myself even more. Can you blame me? I'll do measurements as well. Like I said, I will be honest and brutal throughout this entire journey. I hope you can handle it!
I have some long-term goals and some short-term goals. Shall we?
- Lose 8 lbs by family reunion (August 28th)
- Run 2.5 miles on treadmill (end of August)
- Hike Table Rock in the Grand Tetons (doing this on August 27th...holy moly wish me luck!)
- Run a 5K
- Run a 10K
- Hike Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood Canyon
- Lose 20 lbs
- Lose 30 lbs
- Look close to this again:
|In the middle--I would kill for nice legs!|
|Out on a hike--I love it!|
|On the left--those pants would rip if I put them on now!|
|On the right at Lake Powell. Swimsuit shape--here I come!|
|Belly-baring would not be so good for me now (on the right)|
|Goal--happy, healthy, and care-free!|
So what am I doing wasting time writing this blog? Off I go...I'm going home and getting on the treadmill. I'll update you tomorrow!
