Goal Met, Goal Set

A few days ahead of schedule I have arrived at 207. 120 pounds gone buh-bye. I wanted to announce it since so many of you kept me motivated and inspired! You have been the best cheering section. I can't believe that I only have 37 more pounds until my goal of 170.

If any of you are an indication of an ending goal weight, I think 170 might turn out to be a marker along the way to a lower weight... I will see where my body wants to go.

But now I have to set another mini-goal. Traditionally I set my goals in 30 pound increments. SO, after some hemming and hawing...I did not break with tradition. I want to be at 177 by April 26th. hahahahahah....that sounds so unbelievable! And it might be a tight squeeze to make it...because again...if some of you are an indication of things to come....weight loss slows down a smidge as we get closer to goal.

But I will work towards it and plug along.

I am also proud to say that I have had a fabulous month of living right and making healthier choices. Usually I am 3 steps forward, and 1 step back. 2 steps forward, 1 step back. When I looked at my weight loss journal from this year, it really is amazing that I ever lost weight! But I have been focused this month and intend on keeping it moving!

I think I have finished my bandiversary post, and ALMOST published it today...but I am holding out for Wednesday!

Until then gumdrops...until then.

  4. Amazing. I only hope I can hit 120 pounds down by my one year....5 months to go and about 35 pounds....I better be able to do that.

    I'm already anticipating your post on Wednesday. I can't imagine it will be anything but great (and most likely bring tears to my eyes).

    So proud of you!
