I went way off the radar for several months. I have not lost a pound. Probably because I was only making half-hearted efforts with food choices and not exercising. I've made a deal with myself that when I go to the gym 4 times in a week, I can buy a new pair of shoes for the gym. Hopefully I will reach that goal and get that prize in the next 7 days! There is a discount store north of Kansas City that usually has a good selection of name brand athletic shoes for $25 or $35. Tangent: Last time I was there they had an adorable pair of brown Mia wedges in 9 1/2 and usually that's what I wear but they were too big, I was stepping out of them. I almost cried! They were really cute.
So I would like to lose 20 lbs by Thanksgiving. But it's only a couple weeks away so I will aim for 10 lbs and see what happens. It's possible... I have been sedentary and gluttonous and enjoyed it thoroughly but anyhoo, if I hit the weightloss efforts pretty hard I can count on 6 to 7 lbs of water weight coming off in the 1st week, and then if I keep it up maybe I can lose a few more lbs fairly quickly with the whole "just starting out" momentum. We shall see. Oh, and I want to join Weight Watchers again after payday. I know a woman who is a Lifetime Member and she has inspired me to achieve the same goal. Wish me luck!
