The method for planning out for the future or anything would be to ask oneself these five questions:
1. Where Am I now?
Currently, I am not happy nor satisfied. I have surpassed the limit of where I wanted to be a long time ago and it has been a struggle to turn things around. When it comes to this weight loss I am not losing as much as I would like at the speed that I would like and I find myself becoming easily discouraged. As of this morning I was weighing in at 212lbs, when 6 years ago on this date I weighed 163lbs and I really and truly believed I was the queen bee of this game back then, but then is not now.
2. Where do I want to be?
I want to be healthy. I am 23 years old and I would love to have the feeling of being a youth again. Life is too short and I know that now. I want to do everything that I can to live life to the fullest. I used to illuminate with the radiance, it would be more than satisfying if I would be able to find it again.
A missing poster was put up recently, it read "Confidence Missing. Last seen 5 years ago, suspect? Tummy Lard, the crime stealing confidence.
3. Where do you not want to be?
I do not want to weigh so much. I don't want to see tummy fat anymore. I would like to posses a waist at the least. I do want to see my collar bones. Would love to see my class ring come off of my right hand, since I have been unable to take it off for he past 3 years. Also the proof in the pudding would be to have the ability to place my class ring on my thumb, sadly that would be proof that I have accomplished much.
4. What difference does this make?
I have watched and read many weight loss results blogs & vlogs. Many tend to testify that if you were depress when you were big, you will still be depressed when you lose all the weight. I would beg to differ. It was then when I smiled the hardest. It was then when I felt like the "World was Mine" and that no one could stop me. On average many put on or lose 1 to 5 lbs a year. I put on 20 one year, then 30 more the next and now this is where I am today. I really and truly feel that the weight loss will revive the confidence, bringing back happiness and joy, bettering my relationships with the loved ones around me.
5. Let's get where we want to be
May 2012 :
Now what steps I will be taking to get there I am not so sure. I can make a weekly break down but if I miss on a weekly goal then I know I would give up completely.
This is my plan. I will follow up with this plan ever once in a while to make sure that I am following with the plan.
