View Full Version : On target ... softly, softly!

2lbs down this week, which pleases me because I am happy with just one a week.

So this brings me to 229.80 lbs, and thus a loss of 7lbs since I started this effort.

It is so tempting to up the anti and go for the bigger loss but I am not going to do that. I need to lose this weight with the lifestyle change, that means softly, softly because everything I am doing now is about keeping it off in the end.

At this rate I will reach my goal weight in a couple of years and that is daunting but if it means I maintain the lifestyle and loss ... fine. It took me a few years to put on this poundage, I can afford to take time to lose it.

I have a cold, nasty but I am determined not to lose momentum so dancemat and treadmill here I come :dizzy:

Well done. If you google what a pound of fat looks like it is actually a significant chunk of us!! It's a great achievement to lose two in a week - you have a brilliant attitude.

I've been at this for two years now, and I'm so happy I started two years ago! It's worth the wait and gets better all the time.

Yes, and one of the things I've been thinking about is that it might take me a while to get to goal weight, goal weight doesn't magically make me fit and attractive- that's a gradual thing that's happening all the time. Looking at your goal, I'm sure people will be marveling at how trim you are LONG before the 140 mark!

Thanks :) And, JessLess, if I can emulate your weight loss in two years I shall be a happy puppy!

Ah, an easy visual on 1 pound of fat is 4 sticks of butter!! That is always what comes to my mind.:dizzy:
