6 pounds to go and how a goal date really helped
Monday, August 09, 2010
Well here I am 7 months into my journey and I only have 12 pounds to go. I have been thinking a lot today about how far I have come. I am still in disbelief that I actually made my first goal of 130 by our vacation. I cant even start to think about how many Monday mornings I started new diets and fresh starts. This January I knew it was time to get serious. We had a vacation planned for this July and there was no way I was going to be fat.
Of course I wanted to be healthy and change my lifestyle but honestly it really started with vanity then moved on to life style change. For me having a date and event kept me motivated and kept me wanting this more then anything. In the past not having a clear set goal date just made me restart every Monday which of course would last till about Wednesday then it was give up time. Lots of people say slow and steady wins the race and not to pick an event to loose weight around. For me it light a fire under my rather large butt and got me focused and has changed my life. The pic is me about one year ago in size 18 pants one leg of them.
