Default Sooo Close!

Today was my weigh in day and I got a great surprise, another 3lbs gone this week!
Then I realised where that takes me to, 1/2 a pound away from my halfway mark if I decide to go all the way to my goal (which is top end of a healthy BMI)! For a second I was disappointed and thought, why couldn't I have lost another 1/2 pound, but then I realised my aim each week is to lose 1.5lbs and anything more than that is a bonus. So I actually lost double my goal for this week
But still sooo close

3lb in one week is terrific and 60 lb gone forever is phenomenal. You can look forward to the halfway mark at your next weigh in.

That's fabulous!! Congratulations.

Now you've got something to that you can push and stretch for this coming week.

Lots of people don't like timed goals, but I think they DO have a place. I made short term little goals, reasonable ones and I didn't get disappointed or guilt ridden if I didn't make them. But having that short term goal helped to keep me focused and lit a fire under me so to speak. Well I knew I wanted to lose weight - but when? With those short term goals always just right ahead of me the answer to when I wanted to lose weight was always - NOW. Not later on, not down the road - but NOW. It made it a little challenging, more game like and yes - fun. I think it's important to always challenge yourself, stretch, reach and GROW.

I look forward to hearing of your continued progress - and growth.

Congrats! Wow, halfway to your goal is amazing! I know what you mean about wanting that little bit extra. I get so frustrated when it's soooo close like that, and it's so easy to forget to celebrate how much you've actually lost. Way to go & keep up the great work!
