To know where you're going, remember where you've been.

Monday, May 19, 2014

You may have noticed that I changed my weight loss ticker this morning.

I have decided that while it's a bit overwhelming to try to lose 130+ pounds, 25 pounds is very much an attainable goal. The starting weight is my current 275 (Goodbye 291!) and my 1st goal is 250 (well, 249 actually...)

I gave this a lot of thought. I didn't want anyone to think I started out at 275 or that my ultimate goal was 250. Thus this post. I just knew that I needed to see short-term progress. I am curious to know about how long it will take for me to SAFELY, REASONABLY lose 25 pounds.

I am in no rush. I didn't put it on in one day, one week, one month, or even one year. This is old fat. It will take some time and a lot of dedication and commitment.

I'm ready. I'm armed with the love and support of family, friends, and Sparkers. Christ is with me, always. I am changing my body and myself to His Honour and Glory.

I have always believed that to know where you are going, you MUST remember where you have been.

I've been slender. I am obese. Now, with the turning of the tide, I will return from whence I came.

The journey continues.
