So currently at 222

Goal is 219 (brain cramp edit)

Tangentially, I will not stab my coworkers. I will resist setting buildings on fire. I will try not to decapitate my husband. I will not beat myself up and I will remember that I am blessed, worthy of forgiveness, have many options and am deeply loved by many people.


Word.

Lets do this.

If you stay perfectly on plan and "only" lose 2 lbs, is that going to make you angry? Frustrated? Feel like a failure? Because that could happen, and if you are going to react that way, you need a different plan. If, on the other hand, two pounds (or one pound, or half a pound) won't throw you off your game--it's a motivational goal but not a lot of emotion tied up in achieving it--then good luck and I hope it works.

Good luck!

I am not losing two pounds a week, but what the heck, the weeks are going to pass anyways and the small losses add up.

Ah I was wondering about that! You're very welcome. :) I liked your affirmations, BTW. They're the sort of things keeping me on track too.

Shmead you make a good point about motivational goals v ultimatums. I set 'best case scenario' goals for the week sometimes and if I meet them I'm happy, and if not, I try to see it as an opportunity to learn not to let the scale determine my mood!

Good luck, slayrick. :)

Thanks for taking the time to reply guys! Appreciated. Glad you liked the words losinlish. It was a hard weekend so I needed to remind myself of a few things. So just got off the scale and I am down to 220. So one.more.pound. over the weekend would be awesome (as opposed to my brain cramp goal of 199 a 23 lb weight loss!??!? over the week, people are like 'this girl is smoking crack') :)

And in response to Shmead's question...yes and no. I will pout for about five minutes, but I don’t think it will derail all efforts. The 'tick tock, this is going to take forever' factor does annoy me, but that is why I am here! You guys give me perspective!

Cheers for the posts!
