S.M.A.R.T Resolutions for 2017


Happy New Year! I made it! Not only did I make it into the new year, I was hanging on for a last minute push towards my weight loss goals for last year. I actually lost 51 pounds! I was elated to stand on the scale and look down to see 289. I rubbed my eyes stepped off the scale and stepped back on…same thing. I started 2016 at 340 pounds, so to see 289 was most amazing! Did you set any new year’s resolutions? I didn’t. I don’t think I ever have. I do take time to reflect. I reflect on the previous year and all that has happened for me, the ones around me and the world. I take time to be especially thankful to have made it through another year. I do feel a sense of refreshing and renewal as another year starts. I also take time to set goals for myself for the next year. I take a well-rounded approach. I seek goals as a person on cleaning, clearing and bettering the “inside me”. Last year when I said I wanted to be a better, kinder and more loving person on the “inside”, I didn’t know that what was on the “inside” was health and fitness too. So, indeed, I was better, kinder and more loving to my physical inside as well. I set financial goals to save more and spend less. I set spiritual goals to pray, be more grateful and see the beauty in all of the wonderful blessings in life. I even set goals to deal with whatever is not-so-good with a more positive attitude. If those are resolutions, then consider me resolved. One of the lessons in the Fit Mind Fit Body program is to set S.M.A.R.T goals. This means they are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time Bound. There was a point last year where I maintained for about 4 months. I was down a little and up a little each week. I was happy and perplexed at the same time. I was happy that overall I wasn’t gaining but perplexed that I was marking time with so far to go on my weight loss journey. This got me to thinking that 50 pounds for this year may be a bit aggressive. I now know what it takes to lose 50 pounds and it was not easy. I sat down and thought about what is realistic. While I lost 51, a better, realistic goal for next year is more like 25 pounds. If I can do that and maintain it, I will be a happy girl. If I do more than that, wonderful, but I don’t want to disappoint myself. I am shooting for 2 pounds a month. I plan to do that by finding lower calorie food options. For instance, I often turn to a blueberry breakfast biscuit that is 230 calories a pack. I found one that is very similar but 170 calories. That is 60 less calories in one setting. I plan to consistently find healthy, low calorie snacks and meals. In those meals, I am going for cleaner, more natural choices. I plan to not only stay within a certain amount of calories but make sure those calories are nutritious and not full of fat or sodium. I will push myself a little harder in workouts each time. And with a sedentary job, move more when at work (at least a short walk every hour). Finally, I will drink more water (at least 120 oz a day). Cue up the fireworks. 2017 is starting with a bang. Feel free to follow my progress as I explore the first year after making a weight management lifestyle change.
