Boy am I proud!!

Friday, February 12, 2010

Well - I am sure proud of myself right now! My original weight loss goal when I set it back in August was 135. Yesterday I weighed in at 137. I cannot believe that I am almost there. Quite frankly it scared me a little to be this close to the end. So I did what I thought was the sensible thing----I added 3 more pounds to my goal! Let's face it - I am 4'-10" and according to the BMI I should weigh about 104 lbs. I am 47 years old.....The chances of me getting back to 104 is ZERO!!! I wouldn't even look good at 104. So - I guess I can set my goal to be whatever I am comfortable with. I have had a 24% weight loss over the past 6 months and have lost 23 inches of Pam - not counting the chest!!! Guess I have alot (or less?!?!) to be proud of. Check me out!!!!! And if I can do it - everyone can do it!!

    Hi - Your story is so motivating! I'm going to loose 50lbs too. I'm 5'4 and tired of it! I've begun running and now have to focus on eating fewer & healthier calories. Reading your story makes me believe I CAN do it! I'll be 40 this year and am not ready to stop living! Thanks and keep it up! emoticon emoticon

    I am proud of you too and I don`t even know you LOL...
    I have given myself 1 year to get to 135....I have to lose 50 lbs. So far....this is end of week 2....I have lost 5 lbs. I weigh the same as last week. I was so excited that I lost 5 lbs the 1st week, now I think I am stuck! I just hope I don`t crash.
