Almost there...

Thursday, May 02, 2013

When I joined SP in January 2012, I set my weight goal to lose 74 pounds with a ETA of May 29, 2013. I now have one pound to get to that goal and still about 4 weeks until May 29, give or take.

When I set the goal (129), honestly I didnít think Iíd be able to get there. More like some ďdream weightĒ that my skeptical side told me Iíd never be able to reach. Even though itís in my ďnormalĒ BMI range, and I did weigh even less many years ago, I hear all the time that midlife changes everything, blah, blah, blah.

I may or may not lose that last pound by EOM, but I know it will come off sooner or later, and from there, I hope to maintain and continue forward. In fact, I set a new goal to lose 4 more, just to give me a cushion. Thatís still well within my normal BMI, not to mention there a few places on me where I can safely afford to take a few more off (NOT that Iím complaining).

Anyway, I just want to take a minute to thank everyone for the support, suggestions, virtual hugs, Challenges (especially Krystal, Len, Candy & Paul and of course, Coach Nicole!) and so much more. Even when comments arenít directed at me, Iíve drawn motivation from them and sincerely appreciate everyone & everything here. THANK YOU!

    You remind me of myself.. My goal is to lose 74 lbs by September 2013. I have a bit over 4 months to take off my last 14 lbs. I've been on a 6 month long plateau stuck at 143. My body likes it here, but I don't. I can stand to lose a few more inches around my waist, so I keep trudging along the road of happy destiny. Keep up the positive attitude!
