Weigh In Day

Ahhh I had my post all typed out and then lost it! You're lucky - this version might be a little shorter ;)

This morning my scale couldn't decide how much I weighed. I followed the same routine as last week: drop kids off, go work out, come home, get ready for shower (read: eliminate my clothes so I weigh less) and weigh in. I was getting readings anywhere from 248 to 254. After a half an hour of this nonsense, I decided to be safe that I'll go with 254. That's still a loss of 4.8 lbs so I'm very pleased!

Because it looks like I may actually achieve my goal of being out of the 250s by the end of the month, I've decided to go out on a limb here and set my goal for my 10% loss. Those of you who read last week know how difficult it is for me to make goals but I'm working on that. First of all, 10% of my starting weight is 26.4 lbs. I've got 16.8 lbs left before I reach that. My goal is to reach that by March 10th, 2008. I know I can do it!!

Great job on your weight loss. March 10th seems like a doable goal to reach your 10% mark.

You are doing GREAT! Good luck on your goal, at around just a tad more than two pounds a week that seems reachable.

You are doing so well! I have difficulty setting goals too. I get too angry if I don't meet them in the time I have alotted. I tend to plateau often, and not meeting the dates pisses me off and then I quit.

I am very proud of your loss!
Keep it up!

You are doing great!! That goal of 10 % is doable. I have a hard time making goals for myself as well but I have taught myself to make little goals because reaching those seem less intimidating than the 100+ pounds that I have to lose. Good luck this week!!
