Digging into the past was so enlightening.
Just one more reason that blogging is good for you!
I figured after sharing my story from the past, the least I could do is to talk about my future. After reading all my published posts about my journey I came to realization that my actual weight loss only happened during 10 months.
I lost 40lb between January and October of 2007 and really since then have just maintained. Sure I've gained some weight here and there, but I have consistently also lost it. I am only 7lb heavier than I was at my lowest weight and we did just get over the holidays in case you didn't notice. Not too bad. I almost feel successful that I have been able to pretty much maintain my weight loss.
But still. I haven't reached my goal weight. Not such a great feeling.
For the past year I have fooled myself into thinking that I was continuing on my journey. I would half heartedly track points, exercise, and post about my weight every now and then. When I did post I would continue to add my weight loss/gain to my stats that I had used at the bottom of my posts since the beginning.
Well no more. I'm starting with a clean slate. So here are my new stats!
My first weigh in was January 3 and I weighed in at 150.
This past Saturday I had my first weigh in.
Week 1 / -2.5 / -2.5
Goal: Continue to track all my points and do NOT go over my weekly allowance points.
Long-term goal: Reach goal weight of 135 by spring break in April!!
