Default Made my New Year's Day mini goal of 20 lbs!

Although I've only been posting for a week or so, I started this journey on 11/2/09 at 256 and am thrilled that I reached my personal mini goal of 20 lbs gone by 1/1/2010!!

I do my regular weigh ins on Mondays and was at 238 this week, so I wasn't sure it was reasonable to think I could lose 2 lb in 4 days but I did! I think partly because Monday was only a .5 loss and probably some water retention involved due to TOM.

But I also really ramped it up for the past 4 days with more activity and cutting my usual 1500 calories down to 1200. I'm not sure I'm going to try to maintain this pace - my overall goal is to change the way I live rather than "being on a diet" and I'm not shooting for the world's fastest weight loss here. But it was also great to prove to myself what I could do and know that I can go down to 1200 calories with a little extra planning and slightly different choices. I'm thinking that most likely, I'll try to alternate some 1200 days each week with my 1500 days and hope that helps keep my body on a happy and steady weight loss pace.

When I started, I had a really hard time admitting that I needed to lose 100 pounds. That was such a big and scary number to me. Well, now I don't need to lose 100 lbs, I only need to lose 80! WOOHOO!

Here's hoping we all meet our goals in 2010!
