I realized that I have about 3 1/2 months to get ready for the first wedding I am attending this year! Not very long for as long as I have goofed off with this weight loss. So I am starting fresh today. I am going to shoot for 2 pounds of weight a week gone. Not nearly as much as I would have liked to have lost prior to this wedding but since I have put it off it is my own fault. I then have a wedding in July that if all goes right I could be down almost 50 pounds for! That would leave me only a little over 20 pounds to reach my first "big" goal weight by the end of summer. I realize that that may be a bit far fetched so I think I may push that date back to my birthday at the end of September depending on how things go in the beginning here. If I lose more than the 2 pounds a week my goal could be possible by the end of summer but I am not going to fret if 2 pounds is all I lose either. I realize that this has to be done for me but this is the first time that I actually had more than one goal date to reach for. I know I am still doing this for me but I want to look nice for all my friends that are getting married this year, and if that is the incentive I need then that is the incentive I will use. I know this weight loss is not going to be easy and it is the thing I need to do to be healthy for me and my family. I am always hinting at my husband that he needs to quit chewing for the rest of us not just himself and truth be told I need to lose weight for myself along with the rest of my family if I want to enjoy the rest of my life.
So here it goes. The first day of the first week of the rest of my life!
