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!
