Four weeks ago I put on 7 lbs which put me at 230 lbs. The following Friday I weighed 223.5. The next Friday I didn’t weigh because I just couldn’t face it. So by the time I weighed this past Friday I had, what I like to call, scale anxiety. I wanted to be, at the most, 223.5. When it read 222 I was thrilled. I’m hoping to be in the teens next week.
I’m not going to meet my goal of having 30 lbs off by March 4th, but I’m still moving forward. I’m learning that this really is a Marathon. It’s not about how fast you finish . . . it’s about finishing! I may not meet all of my goals in the timeline I want to, but I’m still going to set goals and I’m still going to move forward. Life is full of surprises. It’s how you come through those challenges that matter.
My new goal is to weigh 209 by Spring Break.
