Let’s Try This Again #getfit #2014 #weighinwednesday

As I mentioned in my Smart Goals for 2014 post, I joined the local gym so that I can work out with my best friend, Amanda.  And though transparency hurts, I am also hoping that transparency helps. So, let’s try this again…

Scale and Omron

Instead of losing weight, or even maintaining, over the holidays, I have gained 8 pounds since my One Goal at a Time post in October. Sure, I am still down from the 202.7 pounds I weighed in July, but only by 7.8 pounds.

BMI scaleI don’t really care as much about the number on the scale as much as I do the BMI.  It should be below 25, to be considered a “normal weight” and below 30 to be just overweight.  At present, I have rejoined the obesity rank.

To be at a “normal” BMI, I need to lose 50 pounds.

Fifty pounds feels impossible.

And yet, I know it isn’t.  In my Fitness Quest Continues post, in August 2011, I shared that I had my BMI was 27.2 and I weighed in at 163.5 pounds.

Yes, fifty pounds is overwhelming.  Because I’ve already lost and regained thirty of it.

So, here I go again.  Here’s my starting picture.

Here are my starting measurements…


Here’s hoping transparency helps

I’m enlisting help this time, because I NEED the accountability.  I NEED the encouragement.  I NEED the occasional kick in the seat of my pants.

As I mentioned, I’ll be working out with my bestie at the gym.  I also joined a Facebook group for accountability and signed up again for health coach calls.  I registered *and paid for* a 5K in April.

Let’s try this again. One goal at a time.  My first goal is work out three times per week and to be under 190 pounds again.
