Out of the 400's... for good this time.

Weighed in today at 398.6 ;)

I knew it would happen just because I pushed myself so hard last week. Today is a rest day, and then I get back into it.

This is a huge milestone for me... when I realized I was over 400 again I felt completely defeated, and this is symbolic of me taking control of my weight and my life again.

I have condensed the milestone numbers into 10 goals (The first of which I have already completed) and added it to my signature to stay motivated.

Although 403 is not my highest weight ever, it is my 'start weight' for this round of the battle, so I am working from there. Also, I know from previous experiences that setting a time limit on my goals is a bad idea. I will TRY to get to my immediate next goal by a certain date, but I will never EXPECT it to happen again... because that was just way too discouraging! I want this to be a LIFELONG change, so I will get there when I get there.

399 (Mental Goal) ~ DONE 8/3/11!
382 (5%)
377 (not super-morbidly obese, 25 lbs)
363 (10%)
353 (50 lbs)
342 (15%)
333 (Mental Goal, high school weight)
322 (20%)
315 (Mental Goal, definitely the lowest weight in my adult life)
299 (25%, not morbidly obese, over 100 lbs)

Ultimately, I will just have to wait til I am less than 300 to decide where to go from there... I just cannot think that far ahead yet.

One goal down, Nine to go.
