That's the question I asked myself earlier today. Am I willing to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to reach my weightloss goal? The short answer...no.
Now don't get me wrong, I'd like to honestly say that yes, I'm willing to do whatever it takes to lose the weight. The truth of the matter is that I'm willing to do some of what it takes to lose weight.
Eat right? Do that!
30 minutes or more every day? NOPE
10 minutes everyday? Nope
10 minutes 5-6 days a week? sometimes.
I get sucked in by my computer to be quite frank. So how do I break the computer habit? Do I take away my office chair so if I use my computer I have to do it standing or sitting on my exercise ball? March or faux jump rope for N minutes before? Convince my husband that I need a bicycle run generator to power my laptop? That would probably work the best.
The weight is coming off so it's not like I hit a plateau and, the weight is dropping faster than it went on. I, like everyone else, would like Instant Weightloss served with a slab of chocolate thankyouverymuch!
I keep telling myself that the slow weightloss is better because it will be easier to maintain. Sure, I could exercise 1-2 hours a day and get super fast weightloss but would I continue that outlay of exercise if needed to keep the weight off? I'm not so sure. Or is this just a cop out, a self pat on the back telling me that it's ok to be a slacker.
My goal is to lose 20 lbs before Christmas, with a super goal of 25 lbs before Christmas. My goal from now to the end of September is 8 lbs, or 10lbs super goal. My exercise goal is 30 minutes 5-6 times a week. Strength training of 10 minutes 3 times a week. I'll weigh myself on the 1st, 15th and 30th to gauge progress.
