16 Months And Counting

Thursday, August 09, 2012

December 17th, 2013 my DH and I will be married 25 years. When we got married we were young and poor. There was no big honeymoon and we have only had one major vacation and that was Disney World years ago. We decided this last week that we are going to do something special for our 25th anniversary next year. We are in the process of shopping for and booking a beach house at Dauphin Beach. The house is beautiful and sits just off of the water right on the beach.

This is going to be my big event to give me that extra push to get to my goal. I have 16 months to make this happen. I figure to get to my goal, I need to be consistent in losing 6.25 pounds per month. That is very doable if I put in the effort. I want to pack very light. The smaller the clothes and the less clothes that I need to take will make that possible. emoticon

I'm going to try to be more consistent in blogging and sharing my progress as I move forward. I need you all to cheer me on and keep pushing me in the right direction.

So, with all of that said...IT"S ON!!!!

    Go Lisa!!!! You have lost a great deal already, so you have the basics down. Now it is a matter of REALLY wanting it. I know I got to the point where I said this is it. It is my life. I am the one that makes the decisions of what I put in my mouth - not anyone else. I also believe visualization is key. I made up my mind that I was going to lose the remainder of the weight and I looked in the mirror and I actually saw myself much lighter - the way I used to look and now I am on the way. I know you can do it! emoticon emoticon
