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

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I’m so close to a milestone, I can taste it.

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

At next Thursday’s 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.

I’m not going back to those 50 pounds either. That’s the end of that chapter of my life and a new one is beginning.

What’s 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 I’ll finally be out of the 300’s.

I haven’t been in the 200’s in years. I’m 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, I’m dreaming of “One-derland” as people seem to call it these days.

But I’m not going to think too much about “One-derland” yet, because that time has not yet come.

I haven’t figured out what I am going to reward myself with yet for meeting my goal, but I think it’s 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, that’s one thing for sure.

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

I’ll workout every day and I’ll eat well.

And try like anything to get a decent night’s sleep.

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

Usually that’s not a goal that’s 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
