View Full Version : 2.7lbs to go!

I'm really going for this vacation target. I know

in 2.7 I'll be 179.9, which is hardly 179 at all but it would be a big deal for me
that whatever weight I am it's 43+lbs less than when I booked the trip

I promise faithfully not to be all whiny or lose the plot if I don't get to it


I've decided to put my all into trying. So many things in my life I haven't started for fear of failing. This time I'm going to try for this 'success' - and promise to try to deal with the 'failure' - because if I could learn that, it would be a huge deal for every bit of my life.

Off to conduct a funeral, have lunch, then hit the gym again. Onward!

Go Ailidh! I have every confidence you will reach your goal!

Oooh, good luck!

Timed weight loss goals can be scary, and I too generally avoid putting myself under that much pressure, but I've just decided to go for broke this month too. (100kg, here I come!) I think the fact that I'm confident enough to make the commitment greatly increases my likelihood of achieving it. It's not wishful thinking, but probable and achieveable, especially when you consider my track record. And if I don't make it, I will celebrate what I have lost, work out what I should have done differently, and not let it paralyse me.

You have this awesome track record, and the determination to continue on. Go for it.

2.5lbs to go. Poo but I promised not to whine, so I'm not.

You can totally do it. AS LONG AS you are not starving yourself I promise not to kick your butt ;)

It's funny. I follow my plan and let the chips fall where they may but I'm REALLY working towards my solstice challenge but watching my sodium BIG TIME and making SURE I'm getting in my water :)

Good grief, cfmama, are you psychic as well as everything else? :wink:

I haven't been going very low on calories yet but I was kind of planning to today.

Dang, if you're watching That Closely, I'm off for some oatcakes and peanut butter!
