Need support in losing weight
I decided to start building my endurance for walking at DW and it didn't go so well. In 10 minutes I didn't even get 0.4 miles and I was out of breath along with being able to tell that my plantar fasciitis was acting up. I'm going to need a lot of people urging me on.
Here is what is going on:
We are going to DW in 113 days and at the way I feel now I will be sitting on a bench watching my family enjoy the parks. I need motivation to drop 50lbs before we go so 1) I won't feel like I'm going to die while walking there, 2) will be able to find clothes to fit me while there, and 3) won't be as embarrassed to be photographed with my family while there (and 4) so I become healthier and can stick around for my children).
Before you tell me I am crazy for wanting to lose 50lbs in just over 3 months, I know that is a goal to aim for and I would be happy with 30lbs, but would just like a higher goal set. I have the type of mindset where I try to meet goals so if I set them low I will meet them low (hope that makes sense), so I set them high and aim high but am happy if I truly have done my best.
I am 41 now. I need to lose 120lbs total. I do own a treadmill so I can walk on it. I have a Total Gym that was a gift from my MIL that is standing dusty in a corner, with not much room to put it in. We have a Kinnect so I thought I would do my kids Just Dance Disney (only active one I can do right now) to get a bit of cardio, too. I can't afford a gym, exercise games for Xbox or WW because we are saving for the Disney trip.
What I don't have is a lot of time. I have a full time job and two young children.
My monthly goals:
September 15 lbs
October 15 lbs
November 10 lbs
December 10 lbs
Although I cannot do WW meetings, I am going to follow that plan to the best of my ability. I just think my weekly accountability will be here.
