I reached my 2nd goal, one day early! I am at 195, 20.5 lbs lost. My reward is guitar lessons. Yes, I have rock star aspirations :). My next goal is a small one in pounds, but big in meaning. At 191 lbs I will be under BMI 30. Now, don't tell me the BMI measurement is a crock. I really don't care. Most categories have arbitrary cutoffs. I can accept that at 191 I will be merely "overweight", and it will be a nice place to visit, but not for long!
My reward for that will be new perfume. I believe in treating myself well.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
