Week 13: Goal met!

anime-peace-signWell I didn’t exactly crush my goal as I had intended, but I did make it! 🙂 Sunday morning I was exactly 68kg (149.9 lbs or 10.7 st). I am pretty stoked, as I have not been this weight in 10 (?!) years!

In my previous blogpost I wrote that I wasn’t entirely sure whether or not I was going to set myself another goal. In reply to my questions what other people’s thoughts were on this a number of my lovely readers (you know who you are) advised me to pick a different, non weight-loss related goal instead.

I looked at some examples of fitness goals, but am hesitant to set any of them as I am currently afraid that will be overworking my body. I am still greatly struggling with fatigue issues (which has even forced me not to do Yoga for a couple of days). As I will be taking tap-dancing lessons starting next week, I think it would be a bad idea to set another fitness goal for now.

There is, however, one goal that has been on my mind for a while. A fellow blogger, Daveywankenobie (check him out, he is a really good writer) who is also struggling to build his self-confidence, started to post selfies of himself. I really, really dislike having my picture taken so I have decided that this would be a really good way of getting used to seeing myself in pictures. So I will be setting that as my goal: take pictures and selfies and share them! This will, however, have to wait until I have my new phone (which will be soon), as the camera on my current one is pretty bad.

I have also decided that I am going to stick to this eating pattern for now, which may mean I will lose some more weight. The goal ultimate goal, after all, is a healthy lifestyle, so that is what I am going to keep working towards.
