Skinny vs. sex -- which will be the big winner?

A few weeks ago, I posted that I was starting a new challenge for myself to lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks. And I was off to a rolling start -- I lost 5 lbs that very first week. (from 142.8 to 137.8)

Well -- I had some setbacks shortly after. Some family issues that I can't go into here -- but let's just say that when I'm upset, I seek solace in food. (classic, trying to "fill the void" sort of thing) Yet while I was eating up a storm, I still managed to get in a good amount of working out -- so miraculously, I only gained about a pound back. (up to 138.8 as of yesterday)

Officially this means: I'm still within the challenge! Down 4 lbs in 4 weeks... and now that my head is "in" it again, I need to keep this rolling. That means getting down to about 132 by June 9 -- but I'd REALLY like to be below 130 by then.

To digress for a moment: today when I was kissing Portuguese Dish, I thought about how long it's been since I've slept with a man: nearly three months. And I couldn't help but wonder -- when the HELL am I going to fricking have sex again?!! Sure, I could find a FB -- but I really want it to be someone with whom I have SOME semblance of a relationship. That could take a while.

This made me think: surely, I could reach my goal weight by the time that happens, yes? Please note, I'm NOT losing this weight for this as-yet-unknown lover -- this is all for me, and my own confidence / self-esteem / sexiness factor.

So -- whattaya think? Which will come first -- the magic number on the scale, or the magic notch on the bedpost?

Either way -- would love any words of support you care to toss my way! So de-lurk, hit that COMMENT button below, and start talking! (if you choose to write anonymously, or aren't a Googler, no problem... but if you're a "real life" friend, include your name or initials in your post so I know who you are!)

I put my money on the weight but its not like I know you. Setting goals is good for weight loss but not for sex. If you try to meet that goal, god knows who you might sleep with.

Well, I think you look perfect just the way you are, so I'm going to vote for the bedpost over the treadmill. Here's to scratching that three-month itch!

Well, getting to a goal weight will make you feel sexier anyway--so think of that as a good incentive!!

Acali: I'm 5'4"... so I'm not exactly "fat" right now, but I'd feel a lot more confident if I were in the 120s zone.

JGO: the sex part isn't exactly a "goal" ... it would just be nice to get some! (of course, with the right guy)

Schmutti: (great name) awww, thanks!

CJ: true that

At 2 1/2 months I'm right behind you! And I'm with you about looking for something more permanent rather than an FB. FBs are a dime a dozen! Or, rather, ONSs are (good FBs are almost as hard to find as more serious relationships, but I digress). Anyhoo, either way (sex or weight) you'll have it made.
