I Got Troubles oh but, Not Today - 15/30 Challenge!

October 15, 2010

I've been feeling pretty depressed about my weight lately, I started off losing fairly well, but I've stalled and I'm really aggravated by it.

Normally I'd sit myself down with a large bowl of chips, maybe some chocolate, definitely some root beer. Today, I decided to challenge myself. My birthday is November 19th, 30 days away.  I want to lose 15 pounds by then.  That's roughly 3.5 pounds per week.  To do this, I'm going to base my LA Weight Loss foods around consuming 1200 calories a day.  And I'm going to start going to the gym.  Up until now I've just been doing Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred - level 2 has been kicking my butt, and I'm getting really discouraged by that.  So I'm going to go to the gym daily, and cut back on The Shred to a few times a week.  Hopefully it'll help get me out of my exercise funk. 

If you'd like to join me in this 15/30 Challenge, leave me a comment!  Every Friday I'll be weighing in, and if there are others who want to join, leave your progress in Friday's posts and I'll put your progress in the sidebar!

We all have moments when we feel discouraged about our weight. Try to stay positive. Keep pushing through you will get there. It took me over 30 days before i saw any progress with my weight and it was only 3lbs...lol. My birthday is 6days after yours (the 25th) YAAAAAAAAAAAAY NOVEMBER BABES! I would like to join your challenge just for the fun of it though. (because I don't think I can lose that much weight in 30 days.)

I want to join in to, I do better with challenges when it comes to meeting goals and my birthday has already passed but my bf's is on November 29th right after Thanksgiving and that's when I get to see my family again, it would be great to have made some real progress by then. :) Best of luck!

Just a small word of advise. Going to the gym everyday on 1200 calories isn't nearly enough to give you the energy to keep up with that pace. You'll feel tired and deflated. I've dropped 95 pounds in the last 13 1/2 months primarily working out at home by changing up my routines. Keep confusing your body but make sure to fuel it properly for your workouts. Last December I lost 19 pounds in one month...I'm pretty sure it was a fluke lol!! Good luck to you and stay encouraged!
