Goal! 50 pounds lost!
Finally! I made my goal of losing 50 pounds. I didn't think I'd EVER get here. But HOORAY I weighed in this morning at 175.2.
The scale was moving steadily downward, but then it took me six weeks to lose 3.6 pounds. June and July were just a million kinds of horrible. Even with that slow down, I still averaged about 1.5 pounds lost per week. (50 pounds in 32 weeks = 1.56).
My new (and probably final) goal is 150. If I can keep up the trend of 1.5 pounds loss per week, it will take me about 16 weeks (4 months) to lose these last 25 pounds. That puts me on track for being at Final Goal by Thanksgiving week. Fingers crossed!
