Angie asked me about my "official" on the books weight at the doctor's visit I had last week. After I shared it with her, she reminded me that there's only about 7 weeks left in the year...just enough time for me to hit a very big goal of mine if I work for it.
100 pounds is really within my reach. It's officially 16 pounds away. And there are 50 days left in this year as of this moment. In 7 weeks and 1 day, it will be New Year's Eve. And I want to enter the new year 100 pounds less than I used to be. That's a little more than 2 pounds per week.
So, friends....it's GAME ON! I've accepted Angie's challenge. And I know there are several factors fighting against me in this.
- I've been plateaued in my weight loss for more time than I've got left in the year...and have no idea how I'm going to break through it to start losing again.
- The holidays are coming up, which are a major challenge because my favorite foods are served in plentiful quantities.
- My knees are still pretty painful, although I am back to a fairly regular workout schedule.
But I do know this...I've got to try.
And if I make it, we are going to party hard to ring in the new year. No...make that WHEN I make it. Why bother to have a goal that I don't start out planning to reach?
