299.8 - Weekly Report

     Ok, so.... I made my goal, but just barely. Don't get me wrong, I am excited that I am now under 300 pounds but, I was kinda hoping for 299 flat. I probably shouldn't beat myself up over .8 pounds but, I can't help but feel a little bummed.
     This week has gone pretty well, did my Zumba, but I think it is time to step it up a little and do it more often. I have heard and experienced that the less you weigh the harder it is to lose, so I think it is time that I start preparing for that. If I step up the exercise a little that should help. I need to keep myself in the mindset that a loss is a loss no matter how small, and be happy with it.
     I did learn something about myself over the last couple of weeks though. Putting a time frame on small goals has helped me to stay focused. I think I am going to go with that for a bit. My next goal is get to 250 by the end of September. I will need to lose at least 12.45 per month. That will be 210 pounds in 1 yr and 1 month. I can totally do it!! I hope......
     This weekend is a busy one, my oldest is graduating tonight and we will be having a party for her tomorrow. On Sunday is Church and a birthday party for my brother afterwards. It will be a weekend full of things I wouldn't normally eat (scary). I have devised a plan though to keep me on the wagon, just need to pack the will power.
     I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, I will check in in a few days.


  1. You should feel so so so proud of yourself! You've actually exceeded your ARE under 300 pounds. So no matter how much it is by you've done it!
    Sounds like you've got a busy weekend, hope it's a lovely one :)

  2. Thank you MissusMege, I need to hear things like that sometimes. I'm not sure why I had such a hard time with not making the 299 flat but you are exactly right, I need to be happy that I am now under 300. I have not been this little since I was on the balk half of 18 years old.
    Thanks to you also Val, having a great support system (people like you, and my family) is so so important. Not having one, I think is why I have never succeeded in the past!
