Sadly, I’m back up to the weight I was in APRIL! Seriously? It’s like all those months of hard work have been erased and now I have to start over. But, I can. I did it once and I can do it again. And again. I can NEVER give up.
AUGUST I was doing pretty well. Mostly around 140. Then September I was maintaining. Although that was not my goal, I still kept off the weight I’d lost this year.
I stopped walking around August and got a sit down job. Not good. The stress drove me to food. Not good. Now here we are mid October and back with May’s numbers.
I want to be back in the 130′s at the end of this month. Today (October 16, 2012) I am back at 142.5 so it’s doable! Right?
If I made it a goal to lose ONLY 2 lbs each week until the end of the year – that’s like 11 weeks. Wow, that would be too cool! I want to get back to 137.5 – my lowest weight (on my old scale). Yep. That’s it! My goal for October is to be 137.5 by October 31. Then I won’t feel like I’ve lost all those months. That is 5 lbs. If I can be 140 on Oct 21 and 138 on the 28th and then 137.5 on the 31st, I’ll have met my goal!
It’s not rocket science. I just have to quit eating late at night, drink more water, – or just “Lay back, take a sip of tea, mow a little grass; and then if you get tired, take you a little nap.”
That’s what I always say, Jack!
