Original Goal... I did it!

I hit goal once... I CAN do it again!

Monday, October 25, 2010


I look at the clock and realize that it is going to be a long night. My daughter (will be 2 in a couple of weeks) is already asleep.  I hope that she stays.  She got to spend the day with the 2 year old class today, so maybe she played extra hard at school today. 

I had a wonderful day today.  I spend a lot of time just amazed at how much better I feel all of the time.  I feel light and airy,  not tired and dragged down.  I can only imagine that this will keep getting better and better the further I get into this.  I still haven't hit 6 months out yet.  I am hoping to get to 150 lbs by new years.  It is totally doable as that is 12 lbs in 10 weeks.

Some have asked previously, I am really short.  (5'2")  I guess that makes my weights look really low to a lot of people.  My highest ever weight is 210 lbs.  I was completely miserable.  My BMI was 39.  I was wearing a really tight 18.  I couldn't bear to buy a 20.  So I understand that my starting weight may be a lot of others goal, but something that was very unhealthy for me.

Glad to hear how well you are doing.

I can SO see you getting to the goal you want. You stay wherever or hit wherever you feel comfortable - the rest is just numbers!

I think that goal is totally doable. I'm 5' even so I feel ya on the whole being short, fat thing. My ultimate holy-cow-I'm-one-hot-mama goal is 125. Even if I just see it for a day and then jump back up to 140, I'd be in bliss.

I hear you! I too am 5'2. I started at 225 (BMI 40 or so) and I get a lot of comments that 125 pounds is "too low" but it really looks quite normal and healthy on me. Your goal for 150 pounds is totally do-able! Go go!
