Well, obviously that didn't work for me, as I am the heaviest I have ever been and not where I want to be physically. I have been working hard at maintaining balance between sweets/desserts and exercise, hence the name of this blog!
Right now, I am not focusing on any number that I want to get to. I am going to stop losing weight when I feel my best and when I fit into my clothes better. One of my greatest motivations right now, is trying to fit into a pair of jeans that I absolutely love and have not been able to wear because they are too tight. I'm hoping to fit into them by my 22nd birthday (middle of November). This gives me a little more than 2 months. I keep telling myself that, that is my birthday gift to myself, to finally feel comfortable physically with myself. For the last year, I haven't felt "good" about where I am, not only physically, but emotionally. The extra weight I have on me is from binging, overexercising, and restricting myself in unhealthy ways. Fitting into these jeans is not just for vanity reasons. Sure I want to look good, but these jeans represent to me health and happiness. This is the first time that I am losing weight in a balanced and healthful way.
When you want to lose weight, do you set goals/dates for yourself?
Do you have a pair of skinny jeans that you gauge your progress in?
