Aiming for the Moon
Wednesday, July 06, 2011
As much as I hate to admit it, I'm beginning to suspect that my original goal of getting back down to 145 pounds before school starts might have been a tad unrealistic. While Sparkpeople did allow me to set that goal because I wouldn't have to lose more than 2 pounds a week, from what I've been reading, I'm probably not going to be able to lose more than a pound a week, since my BMI is already under 30. Which, if I've done the math correctly, probably means that I'll only be able to make it half way to my goal in that time frame. Well, we'll see. I'll just have to get however far I get by then, and keep going after that. It will take me however long it takes me to lose the weight. I don't really want to readjust my goal, though. I'll just try not to be too disappointed when it doesn't work out the way I had orginally planned. "Aim for the moon and you will land among the stars." Not sure what sappy inspirational poster I got that from, but yep, that's my motto.
