I've recently discovered a new blog. This man is attempting to lose half his body weight - and he's nearly accomplished his goal! Sometimes the language is a bit crude, but overall reading about his triumph is quite inspiring... he's not giving up, so I'm not either!
I still weigh more than I did when I was at my lowest - but I weigh less than I did yesterday, so I'm moving in the right direction! I just have to keep on keepin' on, and it will happen - right?
I have never watched the Biggest Loser, but apparently the winner of this season's show also lost more than half his own body weight - what an accomplishment! I don't believe I should lose half of my body weight, but I'm looking at probably a third or so... Let's see... I weigh almost 260 now, and I want to get down to around 170 or 180 - so that's about an 80 or 90 pound loss. Heh - I just did the math, and it looks like if I lost one third of my body weight, I'd weigh just about what I think I should! So there we have it, girls! That's my goal; to weigh one third less than I do now. How long do you think it will take me? I was reading a bit about the contestants on the Biggest Loser - they seemed to lose an average of 5 or 6 pounds a week. I've never thought that was healthy, but I suppose they were all being carefully monitored so it was fine, I'm sure. If I were able to lose 5 pounds a week, it would take me 17 weeks or so. We're getting ready to stare June in the face, if I count out 17 weeks from the beginning of June, it lands right around the end of September. Hmmm - do you suppose I could be the size I want to be by the end of summer? Even if I nearly double the amount of time it would take, I should still be able to reach my goal by the end of the year! Wow - it doesn't seem possible! I'm gonna go for it!!!
Joycie - you are still in my thoughts and healthful prayers are said on your behalf! Tammy - is the sickness about done at your house? I don't want to speak too soon, but we may be on the way to healthy here, and I'm praying the same is going on at your house!
Hugs to you all!!
