I don't know if it's dumb or not to set such a small goal and actually post it here for all to see. I just figure that it gives me some accountability. I hope losing 2 pounds a week is an attainable goal for me. I will feel like a complete failure if I can't do something so simple. The thing is, I started exercising 5-7 days a week Sunday June 7th and since then I've only lost about 8 pounds. That seems like a lot of exercising and dieting for not a lot of results. So, I just hope I can meet this mini goal I've set for myself. I think that this will determine if i can actually get down to my ultimate goal of 148. Any encouragement is truly appreciated.
