It’s official. I can’t pretend any more.

I’ve gained. And I have to (strike that) need to/want to go back on the Losing mode

15 by 12 15

I want to lose 15 pounds by Dec 15.

Today is Oct 25, So that’s 7 1/2 weeks. 2 pounds a week. Which is the WeightWatcher high realistic weekly goal. Tracking it here!

I was never able to do that when I was on WeightWatchers… but then again, I was on it for 5 years going to meetings faithfully and paying my $40 per month religiously. 60 x 40 wow 2400 bucks. I’m going to invest that in massages this time!

But I’ve decided I’m going to use the tools that I’ve gained (gathered!):
– Summer Sizzle and 28 day challenge
– tracking apps My Fitness Pal and map my run/strava
my secret tips that aren’t so secret!
– visualizing my progress
– working out and training for 2 (maybe 3) upcoming races
reviewing and reciting all the stuff my ww leader said to us

PLAN – each week. each day. exercise. food. rewards. strategies to not fall off @potlucks or @parties.
DO IT – Set out my clothes. Set the alarm. Get up and go. Show up and let the instructor do the rest.
TRACK – food, exercise, progress. If I track food in and calories expended, I’ll wake up and wonder how good the scale is looking today.

Already set up my booklet with a page a day.
First week in there with 2 pounds goal by Nov 1. I’m actually hoping to bank a little more than that because I know it’s easier at the beginning and harder the closer you get to the goal. Plus I’m running a halloween 5k on Saturday and i’d love to be carrying around less than my extra Red Kettlebell.
