This time last year, I weighed 31lbs MORE than I do now.
Admittedly, this time six months ago, I weighed 19lbs less than now.
However, the fact remains that I begin 2010 31lbs healthier than I began 2009. Given the house move/new job/death of a relationship/foothills of depression year that 2009 was, I am disposed to be proud of myself, and grateful to chickies here for their support.
So I am proposing to myself a 3-tier goal structure for 2010.
My bare minimum goal is to begin 2011 another 31lbs lighter than today.
This would take me out of 'obese' and into 'overweight'.
My medium-best goal is to begin 2011 50lbs lighter than today.
This would take me to within half a stone of 'normal'.
My best case scenario goal is to begin 2011 72lbs lighter than today.
This would take me to the goal weight I began to aim for in 2002 (half my startweight) and got to within 16lbs of in 2004, before smothering it over the following 5 years.
Happy New Year to all chickies, and may your shadows ever grow slenderer!
