AMAP = As Much As Possible. I think instead of giving myself a random number for what I want to lose each month, I think I will have a goal of AMAP because I don't really know how much my body can lose on a weekly basis as I continue to go down.
Since I am in the 180's, maybe seeing a 2lb a week loss is not realistic. So if that's not realistic, neither is losing 10 lbs in a month anymore.
I wanted to lose 10 lbs this month, but that's not going to happen. And I haven't been eating unhealthy (other than some cake), still been working out. So as long as I am still working hard and trying every day to do what I can to lose weight, I'm going to be happy even if the weight comes off slower.
My goals are just to eat healthy, and work out every day that I can. And improve during my workouts. I think that is important- to keep pushing myself during workouts, getting my heart rate up, burning as many calories as I can. And of course, all of this will obviously translate into losing weight.
Moral of the story... "Go in there an do the best you can. That's all you can do." -Tiger Woods (not that I am a fan of his at all... he lost me with the Elin thing)
Attitude of Gratitude: I'm starting to have a "whatever will be, will be" kind of attitude in general these days, which is good. Better than stressing.
