Adjusting my weight loss ticker...again.

Saturday, July 27, 2013

I'm making a full-on fresh start Monday.

I've regained some of my "shed", so adjusted my ticker to reflect the change.

I've finally committed to my ultimate goal weight.

Previously it seemed like such a large amount to lose, with a goal date so far in the future, that it felt a little too surreal of a goal. I keep saying it's not a race, but still had that mental block of "O.M.G. this is going to take forever!".

Well, I'm tweaking my thinking (again/more) and will focus on a weekly goal of 1.25 lb losses. (My scale doesn't read in quarters, so basically 5 lbs a month) While keeping in mind that I plan to weight train, so I can't fully rely on the scale to gauge my progress. I am also open to the fact that my body has changed and my goal is just a suggestion until I get closer and see how I feel and at what weight I will look and feel healthiest.

My new calculated goal date is 6/18/14.
My goal shed is an additional 60lbs.

I've got this. After all, time just seems to fly by anymore. Next June will be hear before I know it. emoticon

    Glad you are back and making adjustments. I was a slow going at first kind of girl, it was no race for me, still is not. Just want to stay fit and healthy as long as I can. I know you can do this and I do like your weekly goal, very well thought out.
    Keep moving, I know you got this!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
