Let me start out by saying that I appreciate the comments and emails that have been sent to me after yesterday’s post. They do not go unnoticed and have really helped me out through this trying week. I don’t have days like this very often, but they are usually followed by a bout of motivation which is exactly what I need right now.
I’m taking this weekend to really think about what I’m doing to accomplish my goals. I started this blog in June 2011 and since then I have bounced around 30 pounds lost, and to be honest, I really thought I would be further along than I am.
Monday 4/30/2012 starts a new journey for me. The journey where my highest weight will no longer be 282.8 pounds. I don’t want to keep patting myself on the back for the same 30 pounds that I have already lost and it is time to start giving myself gold stars for getting beyond that number.
I realize that giving myself a 20 pound weight loss goal is unreasonable in just the short time of 6 weeks (which would be the anniversary of my blog), so instead I give myself until fourth of July. That is a little over 2 months to get to the fifty pound mark where I can really do some celebrating.
I will start with a weigh in on Monday 4/30/2012, and do CONSISTENT weigh in’s every Thursday.
As far as the other details of this goal to make it to 50 pounds lost, I’m not really sure. But I do know that I will take this weekend to really think about them, and do a full post about them on Monday when I have my first official weigh in.
I’m ready to get past this funk, and make things happen! Who’s with me?!
