Moving in the right direction again
Down 2.2 pounds this week! How? I stuck to my points. I tracked most days. I have no challenges that I am aware of for next week, except that fitting any exercise in will be hard, but I need to try. My goal is going to be to lose 10 pounds by the end of March. I think it's a really realistic goal. I had thought about a goal of 10 pounds in 8 weeks. That would require 1.25 lbs lost each week. That could be hard and I don't want to get myself discouraged. I also didn't want to make it too easy a goal - like 10 pounds by summer. That would lead to my being lax. So, 10 pounds, 10 weeks means 1 pound a week. Not the easiest thing always, but definitely can be done. I'm off to a good start. Now, I just have to stick with it. If I can get down 5 by Valentines Day, I plan to treat myself to some chocolate - good chocolate!
