Getting to 170 by August

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Talk about a huge hurdle. I don't think I have my scale dip below 170 since high school, and I won't say how many years that has been!

Although I want to give my body "room" and not be too hard on myself considering I am generally staying with my calorie range and exercising like crazy, I do want to have some very measurable goals. To be honest, my vigorous exercise regime this summer is 1) because I actually have the time and 2) I really want to see some real changes in my body and more specifically in my weight. This is not an exercise just in becoming more healthy. Right now, I want to reach that golden BMI of "healthy" versus overweight. And I have long way to get there.

I'm going to estimate what my weight loss should be so that I can use this as a marker as my 12-week challenge continues (I'm about halfway done!) and then I work on losing into the beginning of the school year.

175.2 - SW on 7/22
174.0 by 7/29 (Week 6)
172.5 by 8/5 (Week 7)
171.0 by 8/12 (Week 8)
169.5 by 8/19 *huge barrier!* (Week 9)

This is far enough! I'll be checking in using this as a measurement in my future blog posts
