I started with the IP diet at 208.4 lbs and I have three mini goals (or two, depending on how you look at it).
First mini goal
: reaching down to 176lbs. That was my weight after I had my first daughter, 7 years ago. I gained 17.6 lbs after
having her, and then added a little bit more (13 more lbs) with my second pregnancy and just a sedentary lifestyle.
Second mini goal
: reaching down to 156 lbs. That was my weight when I got pregnant with my first daughter (yes, I gained a whooping 20lbs with that pregnancy, and that was after I got rid of all the water retention I had! It was horrible, I was very close to having preeclampsia with my first baby).
Third mini goal
: is my ultimate goal, which is going down to 132 lbs. That was the skinniest I ever was as an adult, and I felt very comfortable at that weight (of course, at the time I thought I was overweight and ugly, isn't that ironic!?). I could go down some more and be skinnier than that, but my facial features don't go very well with a very skinny face and I am really bony (for reals!
hahaha!). Anyway, we'll see when I get there, if I want to lose some more or if I want to stay with 132lbs.
This is exciting! I'll stick around with news related to my goals.
