My Birthday/ New Year Resolutions by Mer

Here it is. It is all complete. A birthday gift to myself. Something I want for myself next year. I know I will get there. I am working hard for it right now.   Since the beginning of the year I have lost 9 pounds.  There is no secret gimmicks or programs. I finally have figured out the issue between my ears.  It takes all my willpower and all my gumption some days to keep it up, but everyday I do it I feel REALLY, REALLY good. 
What is it you ask?
One word that I kept avoiding every I would start this weight loss journey and it is-

COMMITMENT

So I make a commitment to myself that no matter what I face during the day that  I will stick to my plan. I keep my goals close and I will track everything I eat. With this new empowerment here is where I will be next year...
 
The date is January 28, 2013 and here is what I have accomplished:

  • I now weigh 135 pounds.(write down the amount you want to weigh one year from now.)
  • I'm pleased with taking care of myself. I have better energy. I love the way my body looks and feels. I feel like I can accomplish anything.( include your dream outcome such as better energy, body changes, new attitude.)
  • My body feels solid, strong and healthy.(use words like strong, healthy, slender, thinner, toned.)
  • I'm exercising by walking, circuit training and Pilates. I work out 4-5 days a week in the morning. (list your exercise activities as well as how often you're doing them.)
  • I've learned how to live 90% of the time in the weight loss and maintain column. I plan out 3 days a month where I don't track my food.  I have put in place emergency plans so that I stop eating emotionally- chew gum and two bite rule. I have found healthy ways to deal with stress, which includes talking to Mo, journal writing and exercising. Everyday I renew my goals and commitment to a healthy lifestyle. (list items such as how to stop emotional eating, cope with stress, or build motivation)
What is your New Year Resolutions? Looking forward to reading yours. Post them and send me the link. Let's all cheer each other on to a year of commitment!
YOU CAN DO THIS!

STAY STRONG!

NEVER GIVE UP!

Always committed,
MER
