Let's Get it Started

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at 11:47 AM filed under Weight Loss postings

Well Let's get it started....  I am back on the elliptical, back to lifting weights.  Not back to pilates yet or crunches on the ball.  But in time, in time.  Lost 47 pounds 2 years ago, managed to keep it off a year then exactly one year ago April 26th my beloved dad died and I ate whatever the hell I felt like eating.  Now I gained back 30 pounds, just lost 2 already and am down to 28.  Thats my first little goal.  Lose those pounds I gained back which really pisses me off because I have to lose THE SAME WEIGHT all over again!! I have made myself extra work!! 

Well, that should teach me, since I hate doing the work twice, make sure there is no third time.  There's some motivation right there.  Still, I am also making a doctors appt. because an endocrinologist told me when I was 32 than I had a "sluggish metabolism" and should eat only 1200 calories a day and do "aerobics" every day.  Like on 1200 calories I am going to have the energy to aerobics. No diet tips, no suggestions for high protein, just do aerobics and 1200 calories per day.  Moron.  Now that I am rapidly approaching 50 (in 2 1/2 months) I am sure it is virtually non-existent, never mind sluggish.  I am going to find that out and see if my wonderful M.D. can help me out so I don't have to eat hardly anything and work out like a lunatic to lose some weight.  I must say at least I am on a high protein low carb diet.  That helps. 

I also find these "little goals" help alot.  After I lose the intital 28 pounds, my next goal will be to lose 15 pounds and weigh what I weighed when I met my first husband.  Then after that my next little goal will be to weigh what I weighted at 21, which will require another 15 pounds.  Then I will see how much further I have to go to fit into a size 8.  Only because I have never been a single digit size in my life and that would be cool.  10 was as far as I got at 21.  Oh well had a delish breakfast and 3.34 miles on the elliptical in 33 minutes.  Not bad, burned 376 calories.  Hopefully I can squeeze in some meditation tonight.  For whatever reason that helps me lose weight too.
