Don't Wait

by Cara


Yep right now if you look at the scale I am standing on, it says 210 lbs. FREAK OUT. That is only 70 lbs away from my starting weight. ONLY 70lbs?! Cara, get your shit together. You will never be 280 lbs again or 315 lbs again. You got this. 

Ok now that the honesty is out of the way. I need to share here (my unused source of accountability) that I did allow the summer to lack routine. I allowed a little too much alcohol and way too many potato chips. But there is a difference. I allowed those things after I got my workout in, and that is the BIGGEST difference between the 210 lb. Cara and 280 lb. Cara. The old me ate like that and sat on the couch, or napped. I also am probably changing my mass, instead of fat mass I am muscle mass and YES, there is a difference in what those look like. (Read that again, NOT ass, MASS)

So here is my plan, because if you FAIL TO PLAN, PLAN TO FAIL. I have 12 weeks until I hit my 3 year mark. Yep, if you have been reading about our journey, we have been doing this for THREE years. OK back to my plan of action, 12 weeks and 20 lbs. That is 1.6 lbs per week. SUPER HEALTHY way to lose. I also have 2 more half marathons October 5th and November 2nd. 

OK let's recap...

12 weeks
20 lbs 
Meal Planning/Prep

I am really lucky to have a Coach that is supporting not only my plan but also my personal development. John Hebison pushes me to be a better person not only in my own goals but in helping as many people I can with theirs. I am looking forward to these next 3 months, as I prepare to be my very BEST self for my 3 year weight loss a-versary. Because statistics say keeping weight off is harder than losing it. 

I am looking forward to helping as many people as I can because it pushes me harder than I will ever push myself on my own. I love sharing this journey with anyone willing to trust me. And if that is you, I can't wait to hear from you. 
Biggest lesson I have ever learned, DON'T WAIT.
