Meeting Goals

So I officially met my first set of get healthy goals today :). Ever since I had Ana and my thyroid went wacky on me Ive been at the same dang weight, 168, even when I would exercise and eat healthy I had a very hard time losing anything at all, rarley I would make it to 162 but it never lasted long even after a few months of lifestyle change that was all I could manage, it was very depressing and a big motivational killer.

But it seems I found some serious motivation latley, I might go so far as to call myself a tad exercise obsesses right now, plus Ive also found some things that work really well for me :). My ultimate goal is of course to feel and look better, I dont have a specific weight I want to be, maybe a range of say 115-125 sounds about right caues Im super short. But my first set of goals were to work at making sure there were fresh fruits and veggies in every single meal and snack that I eat because the enzymes in fresh fruits and veggies help you to digest your food more fully and quickly, letting your body use its resources to keep you healthy rather than having to produce more and more enzymes for you when you eat processed/canned/frozen foods. And to cut out the cycle of protein, veggie, starch meals. The starches are hard to give up but are real healthy lifestyle destroyer for me, Ive quite making rice and potatoes as sides and Ive stuck to it, so Im really happy about that, I treated myself to chips yesterday, thought just a few :). But more important to my motivation, I have been striving to get below that 160 mark, today I stepped on the scale and it said 159.8. Its just barley below but its thrilling to see it :D. Im proud of myself and my next goal will be 149, I think Ill pair that goal with doing situps at least 4 days a week, I HATE situps so much but Ill do it, I have to.
