Goal Change

Mar 20, 2012 - 3 comments

OK. So I WANT to lose 2 lbs. per week (I actually want to lose all 56 lbs. TODAY, but I'm TRYING to be realistic, LOL). That would get me to 150---the maximum weight I'll skydive at by July. BUT...I know that 1 lb. weight loss per week is probably more realistic. So, I've adjusted my goals to reflect 1lb. per week which would put me at my goal of 128 on April 17, 2013. It's difficult for me to accept that it'll take that long. BUT, so many times in the past, discouraged by the length of time it would take, I've set more aggressive goals, failed to reach them and then the date for the less aggressive weight loss program has passed and I've still been fat---often even fatter than when I started. SO. I'm going to set the modest goal of 1 lb. per week. If I exceed it, great. If I don't exceed but just meet it, I'll be 128 on 4/17/13. We'll see how it goes.

I'm cheering for you Sky.  I think you are being very sensible, and that's what will win the day.  I'm sure some weeks you'll lose much more, but like you say, if you're aiming for 1lb you wont be disappointed on those slower weeks.  So much about dieting is in the mind!  xx

You can do it Sky. I know you've been struggling for a long time, but I have faith in your sensible new plan. :)
