Let's up the ante!

Thursday, April 09, 2009

Ok, let's be honest. I set an original goal of 112 pounds, because i thought that was achievable, not because that is what i truly (in my heart of hearts) want to weigh. I really want to be back down to 110, or dare I say 107 (my pre-pregnancy weight)! If i wanted to be brutally honest, but unrealistic, I'd say, "hey, let's hit 95! That was what i weighed in High School 23 years ago!"

I'm very close to the 112 mark, and I just changed my goal weight to 110. I couldn't believe how quickly I lost 7 pounds by being careful about portions and balancing the nutrients I put into my body. I know that to lose more weight I will have to be vigilant, and avoid slipups, but I know I can do it!

I also know that "it's just a number", but that number moving downward fills me with confidence and inspires me to continue the hard (not so hard) work that led to the weight loss. Now if only my thighs would cooperate and shrink...

    I did the same thing. I set an original goal of 120... and when I got there I decided 115 would look better on me. You can do it - especially since you are so motivated.
