I weighed in this morning at 190.2!! I really wanted to get into the 180's this week, but after the stall a few days ago where I was concerned my weight wouldn't budge, I'm just stoked to have lost a pound. Next week though, 180's I'm coming for you!
I reached one of my milestones this week and have officially lost 15 lbs! My BMI is now in the 28's! Good things this week. I've lost consistently for 4 weeks, which is the longest stretch I've had without a gain thus far. That makes me extremely happy. Hopefully I can keep this momentum going and continue on this downward path.
My next major milestone that I'm working toward is something I haven't mentioned before. In the summer of '08 I lost some weight and got down to 176.5 lbs. Then I had some family drama that really affected me emotionally and I allowed that to derail my progress and ended up right back where I had started. Granted I had a lot of stuff going on (saving for a move cross country, planning the move cross country, finding a place to live from another state, packing up all my stuff into a moving truck and moving, driving cross country, unpacking all my stuff, buying a house, packing up my stuff again, moving again)...you get the picture, still I shouldn't have allowed all of this and the family stuff to cause me to completely throw in the towel, yet that's exactly what I did. So my next major milestone is to get below that low weight and weigh in at 176.4 lbs. That's just 13.8 lbs away. I can't wait to reach this goal!
**Edit** Just realized I've lost 25% of the total weight I need to lose to get to my goal. Go me!!
