16 pounds behind

Saturday, September 15, 2012

No it's not what you think I didn't lose 16 pounds and it's behind me now....I was looking at me report for my weight loss here on spark and I am 16 pounds behind where I should be. There is no way I would be able catch up doing reasonable things to try and lose so I am changing my goal up a little bit....Instead of choosing an end date I want to focus more on a negative number at the end of each month, rather than a goal each week.

So there are 2 weeks left this month so on the 30th I want to be under 189 today I am 189.8 so surely I can lose .8 pounds in two weeks.

To give you some back ground here and put this in perspective....I started at 198.8 and that was on June 19 so in the last 3 months I have only lost 8 pounds. MOST of that being in the last 45 days .

I am pretty certain my thyroid is acting up and need to get into the Dr. to get it checked but I have been procrastinating. Which is stupid because I don't want to hear that I have a health problem but at the same time IF I do then I will be put on meds that may very well make me shed the weight without alot of work!

So that's all that is going on here...just trying a small goal for a change...

    As long as your scale or tape measure is moving in a negative direction, its a positive thing!
    Good luck with the doctor visit, I hope they can get you in for a visit soon and that it is something that is easily treatable.

    You are doing so great, and I'm proud of you. I started off with 207, but I didn't change my ticker to that. And I wish I would have, but I do keep in mind that I started this thing off on a good note.

    1. This time it was about getting healthy and not fine... emoticon I used to get sexy mixed up with health. I wanted to be sexy, fine, and in control of my life, but I wasn't looking at the big picture, and now I am. And I'm grateful for the lesson.

    2. I placed high goals for myself during the 1st of the year... BIG MISTAKE, but with that MISTAKE I learned one hell of a lesson. That lesson was. I'll get there in due time, and when I get there I'll appreicate the loss more than before.

    What a great blog, and thank you so much for sharing.

    You got this, and those .8 are going to come your way... Soon....

    emoticon on all your success, you earned it and you are so worth it.

    I encourage you to set your appointment to have it checked. That has helped in more ways than weight loss for me.

    Congratulate yourself for the 8 pounds and keep on doing the right things, maybe even kick up the exercise some more or alternate with something different so your body has to learn a new routine.
