Can I do it? It's my "new" goal (I've been on a up-and-down weight roller coaster since the day I turned 18). I'm going to lose 30 lbs by my 30th b-day. That's in October. I have 21 weeks. That means staying on task for 21 weeks. My top so far for staying on task for ANYTHING is about 2 1/2 weeks. But it's happening now. 30 by 30.
That means when I'm turning 30 I will fit comfortably into my size 12's (instead of the 16's I am comfortably in right now). I'll have a whole new wardrobe that's just waiting for me in my basement. And I'll be able to buy some fun new clothes too.
I can do it! This is it. I weigh in tomorrow morning and it is on! Be watching - I may just get brave and post a "before" photo (fully clothed with proper lighting and angles of course). Think lifestyle change over crash diet. Think overcoming bad habits over starving myself. Think good health over wishing for a size zero. Think trying to burn off the baby weight.
30 by 30 is my new second blog. As opposed to the other diet/exercise journals that I always start and never continue past that 2 1/2 week mark. For those with an interest in a maniacal ride with one young mom who needs to shed some lbs. And struggles to do so. It's going to be here. All are welcome to play along.
Wish me luck! Any helpful tips/advice are WELCOME in comments here.
