Goal Chosen, and Visualization

Monday, May 20, 2013

Well, I've finally settled on my goal weight. Last week I found a picture of me in 1971 in my 2nd year of teaching.

I believe I was overweight then at 150 pounds, and the dress was a regular size 16. Sizes have definitely changed because I'm wearing regular size 16 bathing suits right now.

So I'm aiming for 140 pounds, 10 pounds lighter than that weight. I have graduation pics from even earlier times, but those pics aren't vey helpful covered up with cap and gown.

I'll be very happy to get down into the normal range.

I'm also switching my ticker over. I have been motivated seeing the "weight lost" number get bigger. But I think now I can see the possibility of reaching my goal, so I'm looking forward to that downward trend on my SP ticker.

    Sizes HAVE really changed over the years. It's ok - so have I...sizes, that is!

I'm determined to fight off 20 more pounds before I call it GOAL!

    How wonderful for you to have settled on a goal weight. After many years and many different numbers appearing on the scale, it's really hard to choose what weight is the right weight. I've weighed as little as 114 and as much as 175 and many numbers in between.

I enjoy reading your blogs!
