Where to from here?

Okay I need a game plan on how to reach my goal for my 1 year anniversary of this op. I have 22 weeks to achieve this goal. What goal you say? Well for my 1 year anniversary of my op I would like to be under 100kgs. Which means that I need to lose 20 kgs in 22 weeks!! How am I going to do this? I am not 100% sure atm.

I really don’t think I am doing enough moving. And part of that is due to it being so damn cold…….I know, it is nothing but an excuse, but I really am finding it way to hard to get out of bed in the mornings. Too much WOW,(game) and it being too cold in the mornings.

So, I am going to go to the gym on the way home twice a week. That means that I have no excuses. So come next Monday night, I am going to be on the treadmill at 5PM – and I will start with just 20 mins. Then I will go again on Wednesday. The other days I am going to start taking Porsche out for walks – probably only 10 mins to start with as she is really really hard to walk. But it means that she will hopefully be a little less bored and she will get used to the lead, which then means we can increase our distance and both enjoy it.

As it is so cold I am going to put aqua on hold, as I just get way to cold and the last thing I want is to get sick. I also thought about going to the line dancing class here as I do really enjoy it, but I think it is at a stupid time…I will look more into this.

I also need to keep and eye on what I am eating, as now that I am 7 months post op I find I can eat most things, although some of them are very limited.
I must also keep on top of my vitamins as I have definitely not been good with this.

So, keep watching, this girl is aiming to be 99.9 kgs or under by 19th November and the countdown has begun. Weighdays will be on Monday’s and I promise to update it often.

Hopefully as this will be significantly more that what I am currently doing it will help with the continued weight loss.

  4. Hi Janine. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog.

    Congratulations on the weight loss to date. That is absoloutely awesome!!

    When I started exercising, I started small and worked my way up. It took a little time, but now I'm walking miles and riding a bike as well.

    So are you in Wellington? I'm also originally from Wellington.
