Talking Getting excited because I am so close to 199

The past couple of days I have just been excited. Somehow it seems silly for someone my age to get excited like this but that is just the way it is. Excited is not very normal for me, not used to this. I only have 7 pounds to lose to be under 200. I passed that 200 pound milestone on the upward journey sometime during my 20s. I am 54 now so it has been 25 to 30 years since I have weighed below 200. I don't normally post about whooshes or leaving decades but I am just so excited that I decided to post. I am having trouble concentrating at work because of this. Maybe posting will help me settle down and get some work done.

You may have read my previous posts about slow weight loss and I really mean slow. I found out that my thyroid medication needed adjusting. It seems soon to get results but I dropped 3 pounds in a couple of weeks. Compared to my 2 pound loss in Oct, 3 pounds in 2 weeks seemed fast. This loss puts 199 squarely in my view.

I am upping my efforts trying to get to 199 before the end of the year. Normally, I avoid time related goals because I feel like I am setting myself up for disappointment. However, for this I just can't help it. I want to weigh 199 so badly. One key part of my plan when I started was that I would not do anything that I could not continue long term. I still think that this is important because maintaining my weight loss is very important. I have lost and regained too many times. But.... I have dropped my calorie level to 1200 and I have increased my exercise. It is still not drastic but for the last couple of days I have gotten an hour and a half in. I am hoping that doing this for awhile will not hurt and will get me below 200.

Am I setting myself up to be disappointed? Maybe, but I have to try.

Back to your regular reading and hopefully, I can concentrate on work now.

Persistence is more important than Perfection

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. - Winston Churchill

Congrats! i think time related goals are ok as long as you dont become absolutist about it. I mean, if you miss it by a couple of pounds you'll still be that much closer to your goal!

That is exciting! Good for you! I don't blame you a bit for pushing forward and getting excited.

I also think it is very wise that you are not doing anything you couldn't maintain for life. But a little push never hurt anyone.

Cheryl I am so exited for you too! Wow...I haven't been under 200 for a months of Sundays! Yeah for you!! PARDEE!! With water on the rocks and a fancy swizzle stick!
2011(ish) and I didn't understand:
Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I'm making a plan & working that plan. I have direction & discipline! Who knew it was possible?
