amended goals

So I really started being focused on healthy weight loss on Friday, July 23, 2010.

On Friday, December 24, 2010 it will be 22 wks since I got focused.

So instead of firm goals maybe it should be a range?

Like weekly losses of 1 to 3 lbs - anything in there is good
Then monthly losses of 4.5 to 13.5 lbs (based on a month being about 4.5 wks)
So then by Dec 24th, at the 22 wk mark, my total weight loss will be acceptable if it is between 22 to 66 lbs.

That still means my currently set goal of 53 lbs lost by Dec 24th is OK but it might be a little bit high.

Since my weight on July 23, 2010 was 278 lbs and my weight as of Friday, Sept 10, 2010 was 259.6 lbs that breaks down into a 18.4 lbs loss over a 7 week period or an average of 2.6 lbs a week -- which is higher than average.


  1. Good for you! I've been off track since the summer :(

  2. You can get back on track - you just have to decide. :)
