Goals for 2010

I lost 9 pounds in the last two weeks of December, 2009. I'm hoping to take that accomplishment and run with it in 2010.

I've had a steady weight increase since I gave birth to C. I need to put a stop to that NOW.

My Program:
~ Breakfast - cereal/oatmeal.
~ No pop.

~ Walk 30 min a day.
~ Stop eating by 8pm.
~ Read over goals daily.
~ Take daily vitamin.
~ Drink at least 80oz of water a day.

I've also decided that if I DO NOT get/keep on the track by my 40th birthday (October, 2010), I will start looking into gastric bypass/lap band. These procedures are covered under my husband's insurance so it's been an option for many years but.... I never felt that route was for me. I'm scared to have surgery. I DO NOT WANT THAT.
So, I hope to do this by following the above plan, increasing exercise, watching calories and above all... staying on track.

Please wish me luck, keep me in your prayers and pass along any advice/tips.

Congrats on the 9 lbs! I have lost about twenty lbs about three months ago and have been maintaining ever since. I want to lose another fifteen to twenty but have been having crazy chocolate cravings!

Tips? Well for me it was just taking it a day at a time. I didn't focus on what I did or didn't eat yesterday and I don't worry about what I will eat tomorrow. One day at a time and then I wasn't so overwhelmed with it all.

And I got the Wii which has the Active and it is AWESOME! I'm tellin ya that when I am done I am sweating like I just walked out of the gym. And some days I can't even finish the exercises because I am so worn out.

Keep us updated on your weight loss journey! And you will be in my prayers : )
