If you've been reading this blog for a while you'll probably know that I've been 'trying' to loose weight, something I've been trying to do for most of my life. I first spoke about it in my post about my weight loss journey so far. I then talked about it again in my I Should Be Skinny By Now post where I decided to finally get my butt into gear and loose some weight. Well that was almost 3 months ago and I am not any slimmer, in fact I might have gone the opposite way!
Loosing weight is not easy for me, but I'm so annoyed at myself for not working harder to achieve my goals. I'm heading back to uni soon for my final year and I really want to loose weight and feel better and be healthier, so Im once again going to attempt another push at weight loss! To keep myself in track Im setting some goals which I can hopefully reach.
I've gained almost a stone since my lowest weight last christmas, so by this christmas I need to be back at my lowest weight or even lower. I've found the best way for me to loose weight is cutting out/down on sugar, which I've spoken about here and here. To kick start this Im taking part in Sugar Free September to hopefully motivate and encourage me to stick to a sugar free diet.
I've got 4 months until 2015 and I want to start the new year feeling and looking the best I can possibly be. I'm setting some goals that are hopefully achievable, If I don't reach them I won't be too disappointed as long as I get close.
- Reach my goal weight
- Loose 25lbs
- Be a size 10
- Run 10k comfortably
- Complete the 30 day shred
- Exercise 4 times a week
- Eat less sugary foods
- Don't use emotions to justify eating
- Love my body
I'm hoping I can finally managed to loose some weight. The most important thing is to be happy and healthy, but I want to be happy, healthy and slimmer, so I'm going to try for all three.
If anyone else is on a weight loss journey, has goals they want to complete or has already completed their journey I'd love to hear about it. Also any advice, tips or encouragement is welcomed. Also I'd love to read any posts you have about weight loss or anything related to it.
