December has always been a difficult month for me. Not because of all the holiday goodies I have to avoid, but because its the end of another year… where I haven’t met my weight loss goals.
Every December I map out a master plan to trim down significantly in six months, just in time for my June birthday, and every June, I am disappointed with my progress– So what gives?
What’s worse is to reflect on the 10-20 pounds I have lost and regained all year. If I added up all the times I’ve lost the same TEN pounds this year, only to gain them back– I’ve probably lost at least 30 pounds!
So I guess the question is, what am I going to do to make this December-June time frame different? How am I going to ensure that I have a trimmer, slimmer birthday? I mean… if I loose 2-5 pounds a week for the next 6 months I could be 50-100 pounds lighter!
I’ve taken a huge step by leaving my high-end expensive gym that often closes before I can get there, and joining a basic, no-frills, 24 hour gym that is walking distance from my house (this goes against my “princess” tendencies, so its kind of a big deal).
I’m really hoping that this time I can get things done, dropping the weight in a healthy and timely manner.
Of course I will keep you updated every step of the way….
