3 LBS TO GO UNTIL GOAL!!!!!


Sunday, January 13, 2013

Four years ago, when I set out on this adventure and set this goal, it seemed like the impossible dream. It was the first time in my life that I had to deal with weight and I stayed at a plateau for the first three years after losing 34 lbs. Then, last November, I got totally serious with myself and tried something that I never tried before. Since November, I'm down 9 lbs. - 43 total. I was thin all my life, but hit a patch about 7 years ago where several factors really ganged up on my body.

For me, carbs is the key. In November, I put myself on very limited carbs and the weight came rolling off (plus, lots of exercise). The holidays hit and I have to admit that I did a little damage, but not much to speak of.

Last week, I started my limited carbs again and am down two lbs in three days. 3 more until goal. At that point, I will take a realistic look at how my body looks and feels at this goal weight. As I blogged recently, this is the weight I feel best at, not the one that's on the charts.

Have a happy day.

    emoticon Do what you believe is best, not what some chart, that has never seen your build or bone structure, dictates.

    Good luck! Just make sure this is a way you're happy eating for the rest of your life - cause you can't really change it that much once you're at goal.

    Wow, you've done very well. Glad you lost so much and maintained before you did the last 10-12 lbs, because you've learned to maintain already!!! What's your final goal weight number?

    I agree with you , I am staying with what feels good to me , not what's on a chart. I never agreed with those charts. Low Carb , hugh? My weakness , then sparkies always tell me I need more , but I am making a conscious effort to limit my carb. I am so Happy for Jess- Major Congrats !! Hugs -Karen - PS. Thanks for your support - I love the Journey I am on - we will see about DH in mid Feb, Medical Bureaucracy LOL emoticon emoticon

    Wow! Three pounds away... I'm very excited for you :) Plus, I love your attitude. Opposed to thinking in terms of "struggle" or "battle," you regard weight loss and lifestyle changes as an adventure. Keep up the good work!
