it works!!!

Imagine that! I actually worked the program and I lost weight! Who knew?!?!?!

So my loss for this week was 4 pounds. Two of those were what I think was a temporary gain that showed up last week, and the other 2 are getting me back to my low spot before vacation. I am happy with it.

It does feel encouraging to know that I am going in the right direction. Of the 3 areas that I chose to focus on for the next 8 weeks, I really only got the water down well and the planning was coming along. This week I want to make sure to get all the water in and do well with planning and try to move more. Then hopefully the week after can just be a focus on the movement as the other 2 will be frim habits. Does that make sense?

Last week at my meeting, my plan was to get to 158 (my lowest WI so far) by the end of 8 weeks (Nov 3) and just call it over...start maintenance from there. I just didn't feel very confident that I would ever get to my goal. I think now I am revamping that goal to get to 150 by November 3. That means 10 pounds in 7 weeks. It is possible, I know. I don't want to set that goal too far out of reach, but I do feel really good like I am sooooo close, I just want to be there.

Since I CAN'T control what the number says, instead I will choose to control the things I can. I will drink my water, plan my days and move more. I know that will result in weight loss and good vibes for me. And I am pretty confident that I will be at that 150 goal or close to it by the time November 3 rolls around.

What do you think?

I think you're doing great! Congrats on the AMAZING loss! Good for you!
I think setting a goal is a great idea. If you check out my post today, I've actually started a Christmas Challenge and my goal is to take off 10 lbs in 14 weeks. I want to get down to my goal weight before the Holidays really take hold of me!
You are doing amazing!!

I wish I had read your comment sooner. I'd love to join you @ your meeting. I go to the one in Denver on Colorado Blvd & I'm kinda looking for a new leader/meeting.
