Competing with my Mom again!
Monday, March 25, 2013
Those of you familiar with my blog entries will know that my mother and I try to encourage and support each other in our healthy lifestyles. We also compete goodnaturedly against each other, too, when we need a little boost to our motivation.
Our last "competition" was two summers ago:
Unfortunately, we didn't end up doing very well that time. I don't know what got in the way of our success, but we are nevertheless giving it a "go" again this year.
A few weeks ago, we decided to see if we could get closer to our weightloss goals before my cousin's wedding coming up this July 25. In England. The thought of travelling all that way for a wedding and not looking my best in the photos taken was a great motivator for me!
So far, I have lost 5.6 lbs. My mom is doing well also.
We have 17 weeks left. I am aiming to lose 1-2 pounds a week to be about halfway, or a little better, on my way to goal by then. My mother, who has half as much to lose, is aiming for 1 pound a week to be almost at goal by then.
Wish us well!
