Before July 25, I will loose another 10lbs.
I am determined to do this.
For the last week, my scale has me weighing in at 230lbs - give or take
less than half a pound. I know I was at 227.8 over a week ago, but with
the weight going back up and maintaining there, I am accepting that as
my starting weight.
So Ideally, I would love to be at 217, but 220 would be acceptable as well.
Over this next month, I will be:
Starting some new vitamins
I am not really worried about the vitamins. I've been on these ones, or
similar ones before. I am hoping I'll get more energy once they start
to work. And be in a better mood overall. Guess time will tell with
Doing a cleanse of my guts - wiping out all sorts of bacteria.
This one I'm worried about. I have been warned, it can cause excessive
gas. I already have issues with that quite often, so ... I will be
taking my "treatments" in the evening, and hoping the worst of it passes
in the night. It's only for two weeks, so I can hold out for that
long. I'm just worried it'll interfere with my fitness. I can't let it
do that. I don't have a hope if it stops me from exercising.
Sticking to my cleansing diet - not testing for food allergies.
I can not test for food allergies until I am done cleansing the bacteria
in my gut anyway. It will be 2 weeks to clean it out, then 4-6 weeks
of rebuilding (pro- and pre-biotics)
Starting the Pro/Pre-Biotic regiment
This will be happening towards the end of the month for me. I have no
idea what to expect with this step. I am going to assume I will not
notice anything, and it will all happen without incident.
So that's my plan. Keep eating clean like I have been for 3 weeks now.
Increase my fitness. Push my body to new limits. Push myself. See
what I'm capable of.
I know I can do this. I need to keep my motivation up, as well as my
belief in myself. I will need to work on this every day as well. I
know a huge part of this journey is believing I can do it. As long as I
can hold to that, I will find a way to do it.
I know this is true. In 2009, I wanted to do everything I could to
reach onederland before January1, 2010. I did. I worked my butt off -
literally - and reached 199.8 on the morning of December 30, 2009. That
was about 6lbs in one week. I really pushed my body to it's limits.
So I KNOW I can loose 10bs in a month.
And just so you know, I'm off to a great start. The scale was back down to 227.8 this morning.
