I’m a little behind in posting my Hot 100 update. I knew it was coming, but haven’t checked blogs or anything since Thursday night I think.
Anyway, here it goes!
My Hot 100 November Goals:
Scale Goal: Reach my first scale goal of 199 by Thanksgiving. That is losing 15 pounds between now and then.
Emotional Goal: Learn how to stay on track while my mother visits the week of Thanksgiving and not feel bad about it. I tend to not want to make her feel bad with my losing weight. I’ve told her this and she is most encouraging, but it’s still rough for me.
I must tell you that I know for sure that I will not hit 199 by Thanksgiving. I guess if I starved myself and worked out a lot I could lose 10 pounds in the next four days. 🙂 I just don’t see it happening though.
A week or so ago I was very upset when I realized I wasn’t getting closer to 199. However, I’ve gotten out of my funk and decided that it’s a goal I am still going to try and hit by the end of the year.
I have not given up and I will keep working on it.
As for the emotional goal… my mom came into town on Saturday. So far it hasn’t been too hard to eat less. Plus, I’m noticing that she is eating less also. Glory! I think I will definitely make my emotional goal this month. 🙂
Ten pounds by Jan 1 would be a stunning achievement. I committed to lose one and I'm a bit worried about that (okay, I'm a piker!)
Larkspur – I doubt I will make 199 by Jan 1, but I will try to get closer at least. 🙂
Leah, that is the key. As long as you are moving toward the goal, you are succeeding. You, my friend, are certainly doing that.
My parents are coming in to town tomorrow, and we love to eat eat eat together. I hope I can be as good of an example to them as you are to your mom (and yourself).
I think you can lose 10 pounds by January 1. It will take some of that positive energy and dedication you exhibit to do it, but you can totally do it! And even if you don't, just moving in that direction is a victory.
By the way, thanks for that email yesterday! We all loved it.
