Adjusting my Timeline for Reaching Goal
Monday, October 01, 2012
Since I only lost one pound in September, I decided to modify my December 2012 weight loss goal from losing 57 pounds to 53 pounds. My rate of weight loss has slowed considerably and the old goal now seems too aggressive. I'm a bit disappointed, but it is what it is. Also, in 2013, instead of reaching my goal weight in March, I've changed it to April.
So, here's the revised plan:
Goal #3--October 1 to December 31: Lose 7 more pounds before the holiday season starts, then maintain a total of 53 pounds lost through the end of 2012.
Goal #4--January 1 to April 30: Shift focus back to losing weight and drop the last 14 pounds for a total of 67 pounds lost.
It could take me even longer than four months to lose the last 14 pounds. Oh well, what is a one or two month delay in reaching my goal weight when I have the rest of my life to maintain it?
I'll just keep turtling along until I get there.
Onward and downward.
