Maintaining and Goals

I still haven’t figured out exactly what day I’m going to post my “past 7 day average” of weight, but I thought I’d check in today and let you know that my average over the last week is …

199.5 .
Same as last week. Considering the 4th of July brownies and deviled eggs, er, food and TOM I’m content with maintaining.
I’ve decided that my in-the-back-of-my-mind goal is to shoot for losing five pounds each month. This is not set in stone, but I know that if I can simply lose that much each month I’ll do better than 30 pounds over the next year.
Having said that, on rough days I think to myself, “If you only lose another 30 pounds this year, you’ll have lost 60 and will only need one more year to reach your healthy weight of 140.” I figure either way I’ll win. 🙂
So, I will keep working towards my main goal of eating when hungry, stopping at satisfied, keeping moving and I think this will help the scale go down in the process.

    One step at a time. That's how it's done 😀

    Someone (“Anonymous”) calculated for me last month that if lose 6 ounces a day, I will lose 60 (?) pounds by my next birthday. I thought, “WOW. Only 6 ounces. That seems so doable.” It would be more doable if I didn't eat the giant marshmallow. LOL


  3. I like this idea Leah. Posting a weekly weight average. I need to think this over, but it might be a better way to get a true picture.

    Great attitude! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. 🙂


  5. I think that's a great plan. It's not about how fast, but whether or not you get there! Good job on the maintenance over the holiday.

    Sounds like a very doable plan. I find it is always better to look at little picture. The big picture can be so frustrating! Good job on maintaining over a holiday.
