Let's get ready to RUMBLE!!

SO I am participating in the this little weight loss challenge hosted by ZGirl and Dual Mom.

And because I am a slacker, I got off to a late start - oops. So I guess this is the post where I lay it all out on the table. I know I have some IRL people who read this, I am asking that you please don't repeat my actual weight to people. I mean you can surely lie and say "oh, Kelly, she weighs about 150lbs" because that would be super sweet if you would lie for me. I know lying in wrong but come on, please. Pretty please??

Anyways, back to putting in aaallllll out there.

And again, because I am a slacker I did not take a picture of my scale this week. But I have an excuse. My hubby was sitting there and I did not want him to grab the camera and look at the picture because then he would know what I actually weigh. But I pinky swear I am being totally honest and I will have a picture next week.

Weigh In January 4, 2010 = 244.8 (ummmm, wow, that number needs to come down)

Goals = 200lbs by August 1st, 2010. But I know that is a lot and I am taking it 5 lbs at a time.

180lbs by December 31st, 2010 - Again, I know a big goal, but I really think I can do this.

My amazing cousin Lorraine who owns Pro Fitness Camp, gave me so many tools to help me get through this. I have let her down in the past but this time is different. She has spent a lot of time helping me and I owe her this. I owe her at least 35lbs.

Lorraine offers online Personal Training. It's very intense and there is a lot of questions and some forms, but I will tell you what in the end, it is sooooo worth it. I learned a lot about my body and how it processes foods. I learned why foods work for my body and what foods I should avoid.

Of course I didn't want to believe her, so I stuck to the plan for a good 2 months. After that I would fall off every now and then and now I am pretty much back to old habits. Let me tell you, I have never felt worse. My body felt so good sticking to what she told me to eat so when I resorted back to eating sugar, carbs and fat, my body suffered big time.

Anyone who wants to try her out please click on the link above. She is very affordable and has so much knowledge. She also has blog if you want to check her out. She needs some bloggy love!!

Anyways that was kind of a public apology to Lorraine for not keeping with my plan that she worked so hard on and a public pinky swear that I am going back on and going to work very hard.

So here is what I plan to do to make it to my goals.

  • stick to nutrition plan: low carbs, high protein, high healthy fat
  • water: min. of 64 oz a day
  • decaf coffee with non dairy creamer and splenda
  • limit pop, only every now and then
  • stick with exercise plan from Lorraine (starts Tuesday)
  • also I am not going to deprive my self. If I am absolutely craving something I am going to eat it. I am going to eat it in moderation. I am not going to make this an everyday habit.

I am sure I will have more in my next post, but it's 4:05am and I really have to get back to work.

More than owing this to Lorraine...you owe it to yourself!

Welcome welcome to our party! We are thrilled to have you, and help you on your journey!

Dual Mom is right. This is above anything else for YOU. You have to want it. You have to own it. You have to believe you deserve it.

Now tell yourself that you love you and let's work it! :D

YAY Kelly! I'm so glad you're doing this with us! We are all gonna kick butt. Even if all we come away with is a better sense of ourselves, it's still an accomplishment.
