15lbs in 33 Days?

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Yeah, that sounds crazy, even for me. My goal to lose 15lbs by my 2 Year Weight Loss Anniversary in April just isn’t going to happen and I know that. Life has been tough and has certainly gotten in the way of my attempts at trying to get the rest of the weight off. I’ve accepted this and while I am disappointed, I’m not angry with myself. How can I expect to focus solely on weight loss when I’m trying to balance a full plate of responsiblities and activities? This by no means is me saying that I’m going to give up, but I’m not going to be hard on myself if I don’t reach this goal. Right now, my goal is get passed 185 which is proving harder each day. If I get to 184, I will be walking on air because I know how hard it will have been for me to get there.

I’m singing in my 1 of my best friend’s wedding in August, so that will be another goal date for me (specifally, 8/30) to get the 15 off. I haven’t seen her in about 2 years, so it’ll be good motivation for me this summer. Speaking of this summer, I have decided not to do a show again this summer so that I can work on my “CA Bucketlist”. Since I’ll be moving to FL in 2014, I want to make sure I do all of my favorite CA activities and do some things I’ve never done before as an official goodbye to the place of my birth. Should be tons of fun and I really look forward to the free weeknights and weekends. This winter I will more than likely have a caroling gig and be in a production of A Christmas Carol which is something that I’ve always wanted to do.

I look forward to the future, and will never give up on my goal of losing 115lbs.

    I think those 15 lbs is much more doable by your friend's wedding and it takes the pressure off. However, it also creates opportunity to slow momentum when you give yourself too much time and space. I like your idea of freeing up your summer. That will also allow you to tie up any lose strings with friends and family.

    I'm behind on my April goal too, it's starting to look incredibly unlikely. But at least we can make sure to be a bit closer to our end goals by then : )
