As I weighed in this morning at 181 lbs., a strange Deja Vu moment struck me. I remembered a walk shortly after my son was born. As I walked at lunch with work friends, we discussed weight loss goals and how I was trying to return to my pre-baby weight of 180 for starters. Well, I'm almost there and it only took 16 years and 11 months!
My next (or first) pre-baby weight goal is where I was before my daughter was born in March 1992 - 160 lbs. Hopefully that won't take 20 years and 11 months! After that, my pre-marriage weight and ultimate goal of 127 - that's a 95 lb. journey from my heaviest weight of 222 lbs.
Goals are good. They give us something to strive for. I just chose to break mine down so it doesn't seem so daunting. 10 lbs. seems much more attainable than 95... I've read the inspiring words of Spark Friends who have accomplished those 100 lb. losses and am amazed. I want to be amazing too!
Let's go be amazing! Reach for those goals!
