A few months ago, I created a plan for myself to lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks – and was incredibly pleased with myself when I achieved my goal. (though I still wanted to lose a few more pounds beyond that)
Well – as we all know, part of the challenge isn’t just losing the weight, it’s keeping it off. It’s been a hectic summer, with a few business trips… and some of the weight has crept back on. Not all of it – but about half. It’s been a combination of boredom eating in airports and long drives, and that feeling of “I’m in X location, and I really should eat the specialty!”, which tends to be something fattening. Even though I’ve ‘only’ gained about 5 lbs recently, it’s enough to make me feel a bit chubby and less attractive – not ideal in this crazy dating situation.
So – as of today, I’m starting a new “lose 10 lbs in 10 weeks” goal. My official weigh-in day will be Sunday mornings – I’ll post progress reports weekly. I’m now 138 lbs. Hoping to get to 128 by November 4th. I’d actually LOVE to get to 125 by my birthday, a few weeks later – what a great present that would be to myself! I haven’t been below 130 in a zillion years – might just have to give myself a great non-food reward once I reach that point. Perhaps a new pair of kick-ass shoes?
