I like the scale at the gym much better than the doctors office !!!
The doctor's scale put me at 324 last Tuesday and I don't think that I could have lost 4 pounds in 5 days. But anyway, The scale I have been using all along at the gym, told me today that I am weighing in at 320 !!!!
I have revised my weight loss goal on my spark page. I wanted to lose 60 Lbs. by the 4th of July.
I know that was a very high goal and I will not make it. I have added 1 month to that goal. In other words, If I lose 10 in June & 10 in July, I will be at 300 pounds ( 60 LB. loss ) That is well in my reach as I lost 20 the first month and have lost 10 pounds each month after that.
It seems like 10 pounds a month is my magic number. I will take that with not one single complaint !! Maybe I will lose an extra pound in 1 of the 2 next months, so I will be at 299 and out of the 300's !!! That will be a very happy, happy day !!!
Reaching 320 and having a 40 pound loss, means I get to open my Kindle from Amazon.com !!! It should be here tomorrow and it was a gift to myself for losing 40 pounds. When I ordered it on Friday, I was not sure of my weight and if I didn't reach 40 Lbs. I was not going to open the box until I did. YAHOO !!!!! I think the first book I download will be a health related book. Something on exercise, nutrition, or maybe a good self help book. I will post something to let you know what I get to read on my new toy lol.
That's all for now. As always thanks for reading and I really appreciate every single comment on my blogs. The comments remind me, how many people are rooting for me and also, let me know that i'm not just talking to myself lol
Be well and keep making healthy choices !!! Together, we can unite, support and encourage each other along the way to living life to the fullest !!
