new goal


Wednesday, February 19, 2014

As I was checking my BMI this morning, I saw where if I reach my original goal of 150, I would still be overweight. Rather than leaving that as my ultimate goal, I decided to change it to 140, which is the top range of healthy weight for me. This really doesn't change much, other than keeping it real. I am not 22 pounds overweight as my first goal would indicate. I am 32 pounds overweight. I am still in the same daily calorie ranges. I will still set mini goals. I am still on track for a pound per week loss...slow and steady. I am projected to reach my new goal at the end of September, rather than the beginning of August.

I had considered changing my goal to 135, which is really what charts tell me is a good weight for my height. I truly thing growing another inch or two may be a more attainable goal, though. It is kind of funny now that I think of it, but in 1965 I came home from college at 136 pounds and my mother told me I was fat. So, I guess I have to be below that to be 'unfat.'

And, I keep reading where the last 15 pounds are the hardest to lose. So, if I set my goal at 15 pounds below what my original goal was, these next 22 pounds should be a piece of cake. (Seems like that is a counter productive saying, doesn't it?)

    Interesting! Remember, while it's good to use the BMI guidelines as a tool, it's also wise to keep in mind how you feel/look when you reach a certain weight and then go from there! Keep on keeping on!!!
