I hit a big milestone this weekend. I’m down 75 pounds. When I started at the end of last July, my goal was to drop 100 pounds. I didn’t set a timeline, but I was hoping to lose at least 1-2 pounds a week. I wanted to make it a realistic pace. I didn’t want to go too fast and yoyo back, but I didn’t want to go to slow and become completely discouraged.
I’m happy to say I’ve stayed on track for almost a year. I’m averaging about 1.6 pounds lost each week. I’m really excited that I’ve kept it moving forward. I’ve got a great bunch of friends that encourage me everyday. I could never have done this alone, so thanks everybody.
These next 25 pounds are going to be tough. As a reward to myself, I’m going to get a tattoo when I hit my goal. I’ve been wanting another one for years. If I can keep it up I should hit my goal by the end of the year. If you are already thinking about what you should get me for Christmas, I’m hoping for new clothes 🙂
