10 - 10 = 20

My 20 year high school class reunion is 10 weeks away.

I know it's cliche, but it seems like just yesterday. Time flies.  I can't believe it's been 20 years. Sigh.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my post-graduation life. I have travelled the world.  I've had awesome jobs. I've loved. I've lost. I've made countless mistakes. I've learned. I've grown. I'm proud of who I am and of who I've become. But there is one area of my life where I struggle and I am going to use my class reunion as the motivation I need to get started.
 
A year ago, I was a Jillian Michaels devotee and lived by her Body Revolution program.  I loved her style and approach.  I was so addicted to her program that I lugged weights to China and back on a business trip.  I was dedicated.  I loved the results, both mental and physical. I felt great. Then I got injured.

My injury required surgery.  Surgery required downtime. Downtime created lethargy and sloth. Lethargy and sloth resulted in 25 extra pounds.  Thanks to The Plan by Lyn Genet Recitas, I have gotten my weight back under control, but I'm a little bit jigglier than I'd like to be. It's time to bring Jillian back.

I've decided to launch my 10 - 10 = 20 initiative. I have 10 weeks to lose my last 10 pounds and firm up before my 20 year class reunion. I have a goal, I have a deadline and I have the motivation to do it.
 
The one thing I don't have is accountability and that's where you come in.  Accountability is the key to success with all of my coaching clients and it will be the key to my personal success.
 
What do you want to focus on over the next 10 weeks?  How can I hold you accountable? How can we be successful together?
 
10 weeks from now, I'll be 10 pounds lighter, feeling healthier, less jiggly and ready to whoop it up with my fellow Indians from the OHS Class of '93.  What will be different for you in 10 weeks?

I'm right there with you, Jill. A friend's dad has said he'll quit smoking when life is less stressful. I think he's been working on that for years if not decades. That's how I've felt about my life--a move across the country, a Ph.D., a move across the country, a job, another upcoming move across the country for a new job, new house, new life (sticking with the same hubby tho!). When ISN'T life stressful and full of changes? I know there are lots of tips about eating at airports, working out on vacations, etc. but it's the whole lifestyle change, not the neat lists of tips, that has to happen. During the next 10 weeks, I want to lose weight. Due to a medical condition, it's difficult for me to lose so I'm not going to put a number on it but just seeing a decrease consistently, over 10 weeks, that's my goal. Thank you for sharing; I'm here to join you.
