Weight Loss Goal #3 Down

Another goal down!  I was really worried that I wouldn't make it because it doesn't feel like I'm losing weight, but when I stepped on the scale today I came in at a nice 212.8!!

I'm going to adjust my goals a little bit since I'm so close to what I had originally planned for my next one.  I was going to give myself the whole month of July to get down to 210lbs.  I gave myself that much time because there's the 4th of July celebration, Ironwood, and a family reunion where we camp for a week.  I thought I'd be smart and not make it impossible to eat a few fun things during those times.  But since I'm only 2.8 lbs away from that, my new goal is to weigh 205 by the end of July.
7.8lbs.  And when I reach that goal I will be down 25lbs since starting in May.

Reward:  A good long soak in the hot tub at Mom's house.
I'm going to need it with the amount of work I'll need to put in to reaching my goal.

Plan:  Keep eating right, walking, core exercises, and adding in some weight training (just with dumbbells.  It's all I've got for the summer.)

Now to go choose a yummy lotion to open.  I'm thinking...Coconut! Oh yeah!


  1. Good for you!!! I'm so proud of how hard you're working at this! How about we try to plan some healthier snacks and such for the reunion? Oh - and now I guess I'll go do another 20 minutes on the treadmill... you've got my guilt up!

  2. :) Thanks. Didn't mean to make you feel guilty. :) Healthy snacks would be awesome! I already limited myself to 1 soda per day.
