Get to Goal in 2011! Update.
Just wanted to do an update on how my big challenge of 2011 is going so far.
Weight loss has been s-l-o-w in 2011. It's weird to me that I haven't even really noticed this until now. I've lost 11.1 pounds in 2011 so far. And I'm thrilled about it!
Two years ago, I would have been upset that it's taking "this long" to get to my goal weight. Now, almost two years into my weight loss journey/diet/lifestyle change/what-have-you, I see things so much more clearly.
I am 100% committed to getting to my goal weight and staying there forever (well, child-bearing and menopause aside). I no longer see my goal weight as "the end" of my "diet". I am doing what I have to do to get this weight off, and keep it off.
On January 1, 2011, I had 22.6 pounds left to lose. Now I only have 11.5 left to lose. I am 1 and a half pounds away from being able to say this sentence: "I've lost 75 pounds!!!" And that will be so cool to say. :-) Today, I can say something nearly equally as cool-sounding: "I've lost 73 and a half pounds!"
As of now, I'm aiming to lose .6 a week as a flexible goal that will get me down to my goal weight of 135 by my birthday on October 7. I lost .3 last week, which is amazing considering how much overeating I did.
Just wanted to update you all on how my challenge is going!
FYI: I added labels to all of my blog entries! Finally. :-) Now it's easy to find certain entries if you need or want to. Doing this also was a great way to check in with myself and see how things are going with this blog. I definately haven't blogged about The Kind Diet in way too long. Also, I think it's almost time to do another 5-7 days of "sharing my journal" for you guys. It will help me to get back on track, too.
For now, stay tuned for Tasty Tuesday tomorrow night!
