My most recent mini-goal was to lose 25 pounds for Valentine's day. As of yesterday, I weighed in at 24.5 pounds lost, so I'm calling that a success. Even more surprising was I stepped on the scale this morning and it went down even more- 25.4 pounds lost!!! So I am very happy. The next step is 30 pounds and it's right around the corner!
One of my hopes for losing 25 pounds for Valentine's day was so that I could fit into one of my dresses again for our dinner date. Well, that still didn't happen. I guess I bought those dresses more pounds ago than I thought! But that's ok, it was cold outside anyway, so pants worked for me, haha. I'll be able to fit into them by the time it's actually getting warm enough to wear them.
Lent should also help me out a lot. I have given up chocolate, sweets, and soda. I rarely/almost never drink soda anyway, but it will be very helpful for me to cut these things from my diet for 40 days. Looking forward to seeing the results from that. Anybody else giving things up?
