Total Weight Loss

Day Six Report

This morning the scale read 179.2!!  That is a loss of 1.8 lbs since yesterday and 3.8 since I started the drinks.  That is an average weight loss of 0.633 per day, not too shabby, especially considering Thursday! I have 24 days left on my commitment to the drinks.  If I keep up a pace of 0.5 lbs per day that is 12 more pounds or 167.2 lbs on November 17.  The original goal my doctor gave me was 165.  So, I'm setting a new goal to weigh 165 by November 17.  It is definitely a stretch.  I have proven to myself over and over that my goals have to be a stretch for me to stay focused.  If they are too easy, I'll ease up on myself and won't make any progress.

I have a doctor's appointment on Tuesday.  I wanted to get to 173.4 by then.  I'm not going to make that.  Maybe I'll weigh 177.8.  That would be a loss of about 5 lbs since the last time I went to the doctor.  He'll be pleased if there has been any loss at all.  He'll probably want to see me again in 6 months to make sure I'm still losing.  Every time I go now, I think next time I'll be at my goal.  I will get there one day and that is the most important thing to remember.  It may (will/has) take longer than I want it too, but I will get there. All I have to do is not quit.

Have a happy Saturday everyone.  J-boy and I are off to the store today to get some last minute supplies for our Fall Fest at church tomorrow.  We have Trunk or Treat too.  Last year we won third prize in the trunk decorating and we really weren't trying.  (There wasn't much competition)  Now that we've had a small taste of victory, we think we're contenders and we do have a good trunk planned.  I'll share the results on Monday.  I may not blog tomorrow.  I expect to have a very full day.  Don't worry, I'll stay on my eating plan even if I don't write about it.
