Looking for the body that I found at 50.... then lost again. I'm now 60 and need to lose 100 pounds again. Things are going well since January 1st. Joined a gym, tracking on my Fitbit (thanks Santa) and working with a nutritionist. Lost 10.4 pounds in January. I set a 25 pound initial weight loss goal. I plan to attain that by March 5. Came close- I was 206.8 yesterday morning, 20 pound loss (March 9). New goal is 199 by March 31. It's March 31st and I just weighed in at 197.6! Next goal is 180 by June 6. It's June 6 and I'm at 184. Didn't make my goal- but made progress! Going for 174 by July 4! August 13: 172 pounds. Steady progress- 56 pounds gone 😊 150 by my birthday in two months is probably a little unrealistic. But I'm going to try! September 10: been a little less focused. Weighed in at 171.2 today. Time to focus!

    Thank you for reading my Obsession blog. I am glad you enjoyed it. Wishing you the best on your journey. We know we can do this because we are smart celery sticks. I was going to say cookies, but I am avoiding those right now!
