YAY!!! I'm only 1.8 lbs off target according to the weight charts. If I stay on track, I should have absolutely not problem meeting my goal.
Now I'm going to ramble on with silly calculations...
22.8 lbs in 8 months, or 36 weeks = 0.63 lbs per week
Just a little more than half a pound a week, which is absolutely achievable.
I'm excited about this!
Yesterday, I spent the day working in my boss' boss office -- answering the phones (which didn't ring very much). Every time the boss came out, someone was at the front desk chatting with me. LOL. He must think I'm a chatterbox, which isn't a good thing. In each case, though, I was talking to people about work-related things that have to do with my own job, which I was still doing, via email, from where I was sitting. I actually got a lot done, too. There were less interruptions.
I got home from work yesterday, had a rest, ate some dinner and then went outside and shovelled the snow. Took about 45 minutes. It was light, fluffy snow, which was easy to move, except for the strip in front of the driveway that the plow moved from the street. I usually do both my own entrance and my neighbour's, since we share a driveway. I also did part of his driveway (up to the back of his car). The snow was really pretty, so sparkly. Some day, I would like to take a picture that actually shows the sparkle that the snowflakes make when the street lights reflect off it. It's absolutely beautiful.
When I finished shovelling, I walked up to the mall and back, Got home, had a nice long bath, and then settled in to watch a movie. I was asleep before midnight, and had a nice, sound sleep. I feel revived this morning.
And the cherry on top, of course, was the number on the scale when I weighed in this morning.
Have a fantastic day!
