As you know (if you read my last blog), I’m aiming to lose 50 lbs. My lofty quest officially started Monday (August 1). As advised by my friend Jules (@julie_ascher), I will be weighing in every Friday morning. Obviously, this time wasn’t a full week (4-5 days), but from now on, it will be. Here’s how it’s gone so far.
Starting weight: 232 (embarrassing to admit–my highest ever, but I figure I have to face it)
Week 1: 223.7
Change: -8.3 lbs
I’ve even eaten vegetables on 3 occasions this week. *gasp*
My starting goal was to lose 12 lbs by September 1, but now I’m thinking I’d like to hit that number by end of Week 2, as 8.3/week would clearly be an impossible task. So let’s shoot for (at least) the 218-220 range by this time next week.
I’m fully aware that it’s only going to get tougher. 50 lbs is a lot of weight, and there’s a huge gap between 8.3 and 50. Gotta stay focused. On that note, off I go for my 3rd run in my new running shoes.
I’ll try to blog again soon–maybe even about something other than being a fatty.
