51 weeks to go on the timeframe I set to reach my ultimate goal. I lost 2.6 pounds this week (total: 156.8), so that means 86.2 pounds to go as well.
I know that setting such a goal could mean trouble -- it's an average of 1.6 pounds to lose per week from now until December 31. I know a lot of weeks are not going to hit that mark -- some will exceed, some will be far short. But give up? NEVER. No matter how long it takes.
The important part is that I stay focused. That I not beat myself up and quit. I've come too far and worked too hard to get where I am. It's that same intensity and determination that will keep me going.
And for all those who are doing something to improve their health, well-being, and eating plans in 2008, GOOD FOR YOU! I wish you every success!!!!
YOU CAN DO IT! I promise you!
