I almost met my goal in July: I lost 9.5 pounds when my goal was 10. 153.5 to 144.
I really got stalled at the end of the month, caught in a little plateau around 144 pounds. I seem to have figured out what was going on (I started relying on snack bars, which provide too many carbs, which was getting me hungry).
I'm back on program now, doing 3 and a half shakes a day. That's up from the 3 I was doing, given my increasing level of exercise. But I'm not feeling hungry and I feel like I'm back on track.
I'm assuming that my weight loss is going to slow a bit now, given that I'm at a lower weight and I'm taking in a few more calories. So, my goal for August is only 8 pounds, which I feel is realistic. That means that I want to get down to 136 by the end of August.
Looking forward to September, that would be 128, and I'd be at 127, my final goal, by my 40th birthday (Oct. 5). Perfect!
