I Know It's Six Months Off, But...
Tuesday, March 08, 2016
I'll be going to Disneyland for the second time ever in my life! The first time was about 2 years ago. I weighed then about what I weigh now, perhaps a few pounds lighter, in the low 200s. As of this past Sunday's weigh-in, I was 214. If, and it's a big IF, I can lose 2 pounds per week between now and the Sunday before the trip, I will weigh in at 160, which is in the vicinity of my goal weight!
But it's a HUGE IF. You see, I tend to stall for a few weeks around 196 (which I should reach in about 8 weeks) and then again around 188. My last attempt to lose weight, I did not see below 188. But, it was going into fall when I reached that weight last time,
This time, we are heading into both Spring and Summer, times when eating nice, light foods is actually preferable! Plus, once I get my gardening in, I'll hopefully have plenty of fresh vegetables to work with. Gonna put in peas, peppers, tomatoes, brussels sprouts, and zucchini this year. Plus all the strawberries and blackberries I've got growing. I should be doing pretty well on not having to spend much on produce! I MIGHT even consider trying to put in some pumpkin, we'll see.
But, no matter how I look at it, I KNOW that I'll be at least 20-30 pounds lighter by the time of the trip, which is lighter than my last trip, so it's a win either way!
Now to not sabotage myself in the process. Better make sure I've got money for a new wardrobe, too, huh?
