My mistake in the past was looking at the whole amount of weight I needed to loose, so I'm doing it different this time. I'm going by 10 lb increments. I think for me thats better, cause it seems a whole lot easier to loose 10 lbs 7 times, than 70 lbs.
My short term goals:
Starting Weight - 270
1st 10lb goal - 260 - July 4th - achieved July 10th
2nd 10lb goal - 249 - August 10 - I didn't make it, but I'm almost there!!
I don't set my next 10 lb goal until that weigh in day when I've actually gotten there.
My 1st long term goal
200 lbs by Dec 1, 2005.
When I set that goal, I just picked a date, I have a feeling I'll need to readjust that date but my goal is to get to 200 lbs again. I want to see what I look like at a toned 200 lbs and what size I am. Ultimately I just want to be a size 13/14 or so. I don't want to HAVE to shop at LB or the plus size department. I know a 14 isn't that small of a size, but I'm realistic. With my body type, there is no way I'm going to be a size 5, and I'm ok with that. I'm kinda tall, I have large hands, large feet, large breasts, and a large butt. I just would not look normal being that small.
I was 175 - 180 when I graduated high school. The dress I wore to graduation was a size 14. If I can wear that dress and be 200 lbs... lol thats fine with me
Besides I have a whole wardrobe of size 14 - 16 clothes that I want to wear again, and I have quite a few things that still have the tags on them that I want to wear for the first time.
I guess I was a little wordy... lol sorry for the long post!
