Thanks Natalie.

My wedding is officially in seven weeks! Ugh I can't believe it and I have so many little details left to work out. So I'm just trying to keep it together and get through the rest of the planning process so I can just enjoy my day.

I'm following the points plus system with WW. It is basically the only thing that has ever consistently worked and fit with my lifestyle. We went to the gym for the first night in over a week last night and I'm feeling the pain today but at least I knocked out an hour of cardio When I really think about it I think my short term goal right now has to be getting under 250 lbs. I haven't been there probably in over ten years and I haven't been able to get there in my weight loss journey over the past 7 years. So only 16.5 lbs to go. It be awesome if I could do that by the wedding but that would be 2.4 lbs a week and I think that is a pretty lofty goal but I'd be happy to be in the high 250s by then.

I agree that small goals are important but I think my real hurdle is not letting life side track me four months in so that I loose all my progress. Four months this time around would be right around the time of my wedding and the following week is my birthday. It would be awesome if wine counted as grapes Congratulations on getting out of the 220s! I can't even imagine being in the 220s so that is quite a feat! What was the reward you gave yourself this morning? I just got to keep my eye on the prize I guess.

Thanks for the words of encouragement.
