Figuring My Weight Loss...
Sunday, February 23, 2014
If I can lose 6 pounds a month through July, the end of July being when I go on vacation, I will be at a weight I haven't seen in over 10 years. I will have to order a new swimsuit in a smaller size, new shorts, and new smaller undergarments. I've already started perusing the swimsuit catalog choosing not to order until closer to vacation...when I am smaller!!.
I tentatively have planned to get family photos done on the beach, an idea given to me by my brother and sister-in-law, who has done that for every beach vacation their family has gone on. You really can't ask for much better back drop than a sandy beach on the ocean. We haven't had family photos done since my daughter was 4. She will be 16 this Spring...and I have an 8 year old son!!!!
If I continue losing 6 pounds a month each month through August then 5 pounds in each September and October, I will reach my goal weight by the end of October. Then I will be in that tough maintenance mode during the holidays.
I've written this blog to remind myself to be patient. I need the patience because my daughter came home and told me that her friend's mom has lost 26 pounds - and I don't think she's been at it that long. It's not a sprint, for me, it's a marathon. And losing 6 pounds a month is completely do-able, and do-able by me.
Writing with renewed hope and energy....Peace Out,
