Jen....20 lbs in 7 weeks means losing
3lbs per week, which is a lot to expect
when you still have to get through the
holidays and the aftermath. I really
think you should set a goal of 15 lbs
which is 2lbs per week to lose. Anything above that is pure gold.
We must be careful not to set up too
high goals which might be too difficult
to attain, and then lead to "failure"
which is really not a failure, cause any
weight loss is a success story in itself.
But having attained "the goal" makes
it all the more sweeter to savor. But ,
if you really think you can lose
the 20 lbs in 7 weeks, I sincerely wish
you all the best of luck and success.
But 1st of all, before you start this 'challenge'...you must get on the scale
and determine exactly what it is you must lose..is it 20lbs or maybe just 18lbs. ..or maybe only 16lbs. Being honest with yourself is the first step to
realizing your strengths and your weaknesses and knowing how to deal
with your food issues. And just because you gained a few lbs over the
holidays does not mean you failed.
This is just a resting stop on your journey. When you drive a car, you make turns, backup, go forward, etc.
Well consider the holidays as backing
up, and now you're ready to go forward again
