Yep, that's all I'm aiming for this month. A measly 2 pounds.
I weighed myself for the first time in ages, and I am proud to say that I weigh a mere 181 pounds right now. I cannot think of the last time that I weighed under 180, except for when I was pregnant, and my weight was sure to climb back up.
My weight may have been in the 170 range when I was in my early 20's. That's over a decade ago.
Ideally, I would like to be in the 150 - 160 pound range, but I'm starting small. With just 2 pounds to get me under the 180 mark.
Why, you might ask? Why would you want to lose that weight?
~ My clothing will fit better, and I will not have to purchase more clothing that I do not like
~ Me weighing less will reduce the pressure on my joints which already have arthritis
~ I will feel better about myself
~ I may stop struggling to breathe when taking the stairs
~ I may reduce the strain on my already overworked heart and lungs
~ It could potentially increase the circulation to all areas of my body
~ I dislike being overweight
I do not want to set myself up for failure by saying "I will lose 30 pounds by December 31, 2011."
Instead, I will aim for moving by body enough that I will actually start to sweat. I will make myself dance, stretch, jiggle, boogie, whatever, for 15 minutes today.
I've done that for 2 days in a row now. Just move my body for 15 minutes.
No rigorous exercise routines that I will detest. Just put on some music and dance.
I only want to lose two pounds.
When I attain that goal, then I will think about another 2 pounds.
