1 goal missed and 3 reasons to celebrate
Thursday, July 25, 2013
My nephew is getting married on Saturday. At the height of my weight loss success I was on track to be at my goal weight by this Saturday. I had made that my aspirational goal. I'm nearly thee-quarters there, but, still, the perfectionist in me is gritting her teeth.
I'm still on track to achieve my real goal - which is to be out of the weight loss phase of this by the end of October, though if I continue at this current rate of loss, I won't be done trying to loose until the day after Christmas. Which isn't such a big deal in the larger scheme of things. Slower may be better for me as regular sweaty exercise and better eating habits really become my normal and not just something I'm doing to take off some pounds.
So while I detangle my brain from this niddly little disappointment, I share some more things I'm celebrating these days:
1. On average, I'm doing my walk/run workouts 2 minutes/mile faster than a year ago.
2. My brown dress pants are starting to feel loose. Couldn't even fit into them when I started this particular weight loss journey.
3. The heat wave broke. :)
