Going for it in the New Year

Happy New Year!  Many thanks to my loyal readers who have been so supportive over the past year, sharing their own stories and offering support.  I truly appreciate it!

I can't believe it is 2010.. Have you been reflecting on your goals for the year? I know I have.  I believe it's a year of facing your fears head on, challenging yourself every day and literally moving forward.

Before I created my goals for the year, I needed to look back on past successes or failures.  Yes, I am now going to give you my REAL numbers because I think it's important in order to relate.

When I began Weight Watchers on September 29, 2008, I walked in weighing 196.8 lbs. With that weight came post-partum depression, chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia.  I was determined to feel better so I could keep up with my three little kids and I also yearned to look better and feel beautiful.  By the end of 2008 I had lost 15 lbs. and weighed 181.8.  On December 31, 2009 I weighed in at 173.8 for a total weight loss of 23 lbs.  Although I only lost 7.8 lbs. during 2009 I gained so much more -- knowledge and power.  Through my research with medical doctors, a top nutritionist and a renowned acupuncturist, I gained valuable insight into how my body works and how it processes food.  I learned the RIGHT foods to eat and what combination of foods work best for me.  The psychology of weight loss is now clear to me and  I have reprogrammed my brain to look for other things for pleasure or comfort -- including lowering my stress levels and learning to relax (this is an ongoing process).  My body is now strong enough to handle various types of exercise, I enjoy it and even look forward to working out.  I lost several inches, fit into a size 10 dress (I used to be a 14-16).  I created a community of friends through this blog who have similar goals or issues and I found workout buddies who relate to my weight loss struggles.  I believe I have set myself up for success in 2010.

Please tell my your fitness goals for this year.  I'd love to work together!

Here are my fitness goals for 2010:

Lose 33.8 lbs. (3 lbs. a month) - I want to weigh 140 lbs.
Workout 4-5 days a week
Continue going to Weight Watchers and Acupuncturist once a week
