Every day is a little bit better...all the time :))

I am a RN with BSN and I am committing to reaching 125# by April 30 of 2015 (one year before my 10-year reunion). 133# is a weight I remember being happy at before we moved here and I before I became a serious emo-eater. However, 125# is a weight I've always wanted to reach but considered impossible. 125# is also a weight that speaks to me of skinny thighs, a dancer-like or runner-like physique, and grace (light as a feather). I've always envied the women with slim even skinny thighs, ...
I am a RN with BSN and I am committing to reaching 125# by April 30 of 2015 (one year before my 10-year reunion). 133# is a weight I remember being happy at before we moved here and I before I became a serious emo-eater. However, 125# is a weight I've always wanted to reach but considered impossible. 125# is also a weight that speaks to me of skinny thighs, a dancer-like or runner-like physique, and grace (light as a feather). I've always envied the women with slim even skinny thighs, equating those legs with grace, beauty, and contentment. ;)

I have been working at my weight loss for a year and eight months, with wide swaths of time during which i am not committed to the process. But I've learned not to gain during those times and to gradually increase my fruit and veggie intake. I have lost 23# and plan on losing 43# more. I plan on maintaining my commitment level with SP tools and SC, so I am giving myself 20 months (about 0.75# down per week) to kose these last 43#. I'm honestly think I'd be happy between 135-140#, but I really want to see my goal number and know I can achieve it! I can always gain the weight back later if I find myself unhappy at my goal, but I want to cross that belief-limit and know I can achieve impossible dreams.

During this weight loss/lifestyle change, I have learned that I love(!) cottage cheese and jogging (with walking intervals).
I've learned how to slow jog for longer distances than my running sprints, though I have not yet learned to avoid injury from over cramped calves and stressed bones during my slow runs. Still, the slow runs are more satisfying, I just can't do them often.
I have discovered a new appreciation for who I am, what I look like, and my writing hobby.
I am able to do my nursing job better without the extra 20 pounds...am faster, more alert, and more content.
And I've both worn a dress and gone swimming for the first time in about four years...loved both and then went shopping. Lol! ;)
And at the doctor's today, I discovered that I grew an inch sometime in the last four years despite being a girl between the ages of 20-24. I thought that was impossible...and yet, it's true! (I love being tall! I didn't always.)

I am really looking forward to being 125, an approximate size 3 or 4 (so I can steal Mom's pants and dresses, too, lol), learning to run injury free, buying more dresses/skirts, changing my wardrobe to reflect my favorite styles - not just my comfort, embracing my femininity (as my coworkers love to call it, our "feminine power"), and discovering more things to love about me. I wonder what changes will come!

Let's figure out a plan and get to it! :)

My Program:
Eating lots of protein for fullness.

Taking a multivitamin (and other supplements) daily to keep nutritionally balanced so I can heal better and keep losing weight.

Aiming for 600 to 1000 calorie deficit everyday to maintain my goal of losing 1 to 3 pounds per week. (Aiming for a steady 2).

Exercising with music and always searching for inspiration to get up and move.

Eating only one sweet or junk food item per day. And it must fit in the calorie range or I must exercise it off within 2 days time!

Eating unprocessed meats for more protein and fewer calories.

Expanding my taste preferences of fruits and veggies.
