About two weeks ago, I was frustrated with a 2 pound loss (because I knew that I could have done better). So, I committed to achieving a 3 pound loss for that week. I was fortunate to exceed that 3 pound goal.
I am doing that again. I lost 2 pounds this past week and I certainly am pleased with that. Since I began eating VERY healthy foods with a 1,700 daily calorie budget (with only two higher calorie days per week), I have been fortunate to lose weight every week since March 1st, totalling 22 pounds as of today. But I want to do better this week. So, I'd like to increase that total to 25 pounds as of next Monday, 4/26.
Since I have to psych myself up for these things and hope that you will help to keep me accountable, I am now committing to lose 3 pounds this week.
My weigh-in will be Monday morning on 4/26. And I'll be down three.
Thanks for your constant encouragement everyone. I am slowly taking control of my health in a reasonable and sustainable way. I think that this blogging experience will be the pivot-point that I'll look back on from old age, as the time when I was able to get control of my weight forever. It is great that we are doing it together.
