I’ve made it abundantly clear that I’ve been struggling since I finished the weight loss contest in May. I weighed 216 that last day and I currently weigh 228.
Well, I’m sick of it. And I’m so mad at myself for squandering the incredible gift that I was given with the contest. Enough already.
So my pledge is this: I will weigh 199 pounds on New Year’s Day.
I have just over 15 weeks to lose 29 pounds. At nearly two pounds a week, it is a huge challenge for me, but I KNOW that I can do it. I know how thrilled I’ll be when I hit that magical “1” on the scale. I guarantee you I’ll cry and then I’ll probably proudly dance around the house. And finally, I will go shopping and buy up everything my limited funds will allow! So if I know how happy it will make me, why would I let some pasta and pizza derail me?
I won’t. I’m done. El fin (that’s about the extent of my Spanish these days).
So today is day 1.
Current weight: 228.8
From the side:
Eek. It makes me sad to look at these pictures and see how much progress I’ve lost, but admitting I have a problem is step one and publicly declaring my intention to fix it is step two. And with that, I am on my way to one-derland!
