A milestone a week away? Just 2.4 away to 50 pounds lost!

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Iím so close to a milestone, I can taste it.

The game is on and Iím kicking it into high gear. After last weekís drama of frozen pipes, not being able to cook, shower or flush, life is getting back to normal and Iím ready to kick this goal in itís butt!

At next Thursdayís TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly) meeting, I fully intend to be 50 pounds lighter than my highest weight of 382.2 pounds.

It will be official, finally and at last! So long as my body cooperates.

Iím not going back to those 50 pounds either. Thatís the end of that chapter of my life and a new one is beginning.

Whatís next after reaching 332.2 pounds?

The next 50 pounds.

That will bring me to 282.2 pounds. The nice thing about meeting that next big goal is that Iíll finally be out of the 300ís.

I havenít been in the 200ís in years. Iím not sure I remember how it feels, but I do know this, I want to go back there in a big way. Not to stay of course, as just about anyone as heavy as I am who is losing weight, Iím dreaming of ďOne-derlandĒ as people seem to call it these days.

But Iím not going to think too much about ďOne-derlandĒ yet, because that time has not yet come.

I havenít figured out what I am going to reward myself with yet for meeting my goal, but I think itís time for a little something nice to mark my achievement.

Well I guess I have almost a week to plan.

Maybe something to look at, or something to wear? Or maybe even better, something to do that will live long in my memory for a while after.

Maybe I should start small and let the rewards get bigger as I get closer to my bigger goals.

The wheels will be turning, thatís one thing for sure.

But for now I have to focus, because I still have 2.4 pounds to go.

Iíll workout every day and Iíll eat well.

And try like anything to get a decent nightís sleep.

And hopefully, all of that together will add up to a loss of 2.4 pounds.

Usually thatís not a goal thatís so hard for me to meet and sometimes to exceed. Although lately, my losses have gone up and down, but at least all of them were still losses ever since I got back on track after the holidays.

This I know, meeting my goal will take focus, but I can do it.

I know I can.

Three thirty-two point two, here I come!

    Fifty pounds is an amazing loss!! I'm glad you're enjoying this success and thinking towards the next milestone. Have you taken a nice picture lately? It's a nice way to celebrate the milestone. I avoid pictures like the plague (note my empty SparkPage), so when I think of success, it's taking that picture and being happy to post it. My idea for a treat: anything you felt you were too heavy to do 50 pounds ago: a walk, a class, an activity, a date, a shopping trip, etc. Anything that you feel confident doing now.

So glad to hear your story! Good luck!!

    You can do it! Keep it up! I am so proud of you for getting this close to your goal. It's so hard to do and you must have some amazing will power to do it. I hope to one day be able to make a post like this! 50 lbs lighter! You are an inspiration to those like me out there that are still thinking how far away that 50 lb milestone is. Makes me want to break out my tilapia again and get my lean meats back into my system!

Congrats on making it this far! Hope to see your milestone blog soon! emoticon emoticon emoticon
