Setting a Goal

I decided last night that I need to set a goal - a first step to reach towards.  I have been thinking about this for a while and I've had a goal in mind, but I feel like I need to put it in writing for it to be "real".  I'm a nerd, I know!! So....while I was trying hard to go to sleep last night, after I finally put my phone down and left Pinterest alone, I made up my mind.  So here it is.....this just goal is to lose 30 pounds by Christmas.  I guess I was expecting some trumpets and streamers to fill the air, but I got nothing! Hahahha! I'm hoping that this is a managable goal, I want to push myself but I also don't want to set myself up for failure!! Being a math teacher, I had to do some calculations before setting it in stone. I figure there are 15 weeks until Christmas; I will shoot for 2 pounds per week; and I've already lost 5.4, so I have a few (very few) pounds to buffer.  I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.........

That brings me to my other thought to share....I know I should have waited until Friday to weigh, but the curiosity got the best of me! I weighed this morning and I am back down - yay!!! Today's weight was 341.6.  It's not a huge change....but it's better than a gain!!! I will take it.  I will still weigh on Friday for my official 3 week total, but I had to share.  My legs this morning are really sore!! The Shred did me in and I'm not looking forward to tonight!! :(

More to come......until next time!
