Setting a new goal through May 2013

Monday, October 15, 2012

Well Dear SparkFriends, I have not made much progress this year although I can say I haven't GAINED. Now to get SERIOUS!!!
I am setting a goal of losing at least a pound a week until my Mom's 80th birthday Memorial Day weekend.
Losing 1 pound a week will take me out of the obese category.
If I were able to lose 2 pounds a week, I would be at my goal weight.

Please both wish me luck and hold me accountable. I am nervous because I am menopausal and losing weight is HARD. I've developed chronic pain conditions in my back, shoulder and right knee, and will need to modify my activity. But I REALLY want to do this!
Thanks! emoticon You all are the BEST! emoticon
Let the countdown begin! 31 weeks and counting DOWN emoticon emoticon emoticon

Addendum: Just read that SparkPeople and Fitbit have teamed up. Ordered my Fitbit Ultra in order to see if sleep is the missing link in my program. This will get me up and going! Amazing how "all things work together for good..."
There may be hope for the US obesity epidemic yet!
