Slow and steady.

I haven't been updating much. I should be better about it. I enjoy blogging I've just been preoccupied with life, I guess. I've been doing good. Keeping to my diet, excercising and just generally continuing to try and stay more active. I'm still doing my Taekwondo class, but it's killing my knees. My knees HURT. Yesterday I kicked the bag and felt my left knee crack and today I can barely bare any weight on my left knee. This concerns me. I love the class though. It's really fun. I'm just afraid that I'm going to get arthritis in my knees or something. Hopefully they will start feeling better as I lose more weight, because I can't help but to think that is the reason they hurt so bad.
I'm down to 236 as of today. By July 1st, I expect to be at 228. That gives me just about 5 weeks to accomplish those 8 pounds, which technically should be simple. I just don't know what's going on with my slow down in weight loss. It's stressing me out. I'm doing good, very few slip ups, and even when I do slip up, they aren't enough to cease weight loss. I exercise pretty much daily. But suddenly it seems as though my body doesn't want to let go of the pounds. I did so awesome the first few weeks which is what I think is making me upset. I guess I expected it to always be that easy. Guess not, huh?
I want to be at my goal weight by October 1st. Then I could make any modifications I need and keep going or if I'm happy with where I'm at, work on maintaining my weight and just toning. I think regardless of what weight I get down to, I will need to tone like mad. Particularly in my tummy and my thighs. We want to go on vacation in November sometime, which is why I would like to be at my goal by October.
