Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life. Tomorrow is the day I step back on the scale and gear up to take another big chunk out of the fat I've been carrying around with me.
In 2011 I want to meet my goal of losing 100 pounds (from a starting weight of 296). I'm not big on new year's resolutions, but this is a good time to get back on the horse.
How will you accomplish this? you might ask.
I've got a strategy.
Phase 1: Go to the gym every day for the next three weeks. It takes three weeks to establish something as a habit.
Phase 2: Track my intake every day for three weeks. This is probably the single most helpful thing you can do to lose weight.
Phase 3: Drink 64 or more ounces of water every day for three weeks.
I'm thinking I'll do one phase each month but I may feel ambitious and start phase 2 as soon as I finish phase 1.
I'll still be weighing myself once a week, but on the first Monday of each month, I'll do measurements too.
What else should I be doing? What has helped you lose weight? What's your goal for 2011? How will you accomplish it?
And now, I'm heading to the gym. Time to kick some ass in 2011.
