The first step is always the hardest, and I nailed it!


Recommended Posts

Oh, this mighty wagon I keep falling off of...

 

I fell again... for a long time... but now I dusted off and am back playing the catch-up game.

 

I started the new year with a goal of losing between 10 to 15 kilos in a year. That was before my blood work results came back and I realized things were more serious than I thought. That goal will have to be adjusted now. I thought on Jan 1st I could just go with the flow and fly by the seat of my pants. That's not the case anymore. I'm planning on joining the next 4 week challenge and go from there.

 

My woot is the fact that I am back here. I am back taking action instead of just riding along. I am back so I can be accountable for my choices and keep motivated with y'all's help. That was the first step... and believe me... it was not easy to admit I was off the bandwagon for so long and come back pretty much begging for help. From Jan 1st till now I have lost 3 kilos already... which considering I wasn't dieting and only started going to the gym 2 weeks ago, is a win.

 

I have 23 kilos to go. Not sure if it is a reasonable goal to lose that in one year. One step at a time. Here's to the first 3 kilos lost and to the many more to come! I am back on the bandwagon!!

I bet you'll find lots of support here, my first couple of days as a member but it feels good.   I'm on the weight loss journey as well, blood work wasn't great so need to make some changes.   Keep in mind that slow and steady is the best route, sometimes things go sideways and you just need to come back on the trail.  As my trainer said to me pretty frequently, weight loss is 80% diet and 20% what you do in the gym, so work on making good food choices and that will become a habit.
