In my last post I said I needed to lose 1 lb per week plus 1 lb to reach 7 more lbs lost by Dec 31.
As I was walking at the track today I realized ..... there are 5 weeks left to 2010, not 6! Ok, it is a fairly trivial difference, but I hate to not be dead on with numbers.
So far this year I have lost an exact average of 1.5 per week from June 25 -Nov 25. My obsessive compulsive brain loves that, especially since that is my goal rate.
To get to 40 lbs lost by Dec 31 I need to lose an average of 1.4 lbs per week, still not too intimidating.

- 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.
