Made It To Goal Weight

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I am thrilled that I have made it to my goal weight of 140! It has been a long 21 month journey of ups and downs. I got rid of 47 pounds and I hope to never see them again! I have been on this journey before. This time I think I have a greater knowledge and appreciation of what needs to be done to maintain.

We go on a couple of cruises a year and I gain an average of 1 pound per day that we are gone. It is what it is and I cannot make any excuses for it. My goal is to lose 5 more pounds before the next cruise so I do not get so upset with myself when we return. My maintenance program is to stay between 135 and 140. Is it possible? YES! Will it be easy? NO! But I KNOW I can do it!

For those that are wondering ( I often did) I do have a little bit of a stomach. I feel like it look like I'm 3 months pregnant. When I was dedicated to doing the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred I was seeing great results in that area. I do need to tone up. This will be a crazy week (altho what week isn't?) and I will try my hardest to use my dvds. I will definitely start after the 4th of July, if not before. O.k., I put it in writing so I HAVE to do it, right?

Thank you, Everyone, for your comments and support! It is truly appreciated!

    Congratulations and keep up the good work; it's a good idea to give yourself that little bit of an edge before you go on another cruise! I met my goal 3 weeks ago and I find I am continuing to lose but my body is used to the way I'm eating. I have told myself that on July 4 I can eat whatever I want but I bet I still won't go over my calories by much because that is all my body wants or needs. They will just be different and not so healthy! You might want to join the maintaining groups and see if that helps you stay on track.
