Lesson #1 MAKE A MAP: You can't Get There if You Don't Know Where You are Going.

Monday, May 13, 2013

Well, I realized that I have lost 10 pounds. emoticon

As proud as I am of this fact emoticon, I realize that I have not really been putting forth a truly consistent effort. I have been inspired by another Sparker's blog and realize that I should set some higher expectations for myself if I really want this weight loss effort to be successful. So I have set a series of monthly benchmarks (THE MAP) in hopes of reaching an initial goal weight of 199 by January 1!

The first lesson I learned by completing this exercise is that this goal of 199 by January 1st is attainable. It only means loosing 2 pounds a week, and perhaps 3 pounds on a couple of weeks. I believe I can do this, even more so since I have mapped out my course...MAKE A MAP.

    Good for you girl. Your expectations are higher than mine. I figured about 1 pound a week but am hoping for 1.5. Will you be posting your weight on your "Map" as you go? I am going to
