Losing the Weight, Finding Myself: Week 22

Submitted by Bethany on Sun, 06/24/2018 - 20:01

Starting Weight: 266
Current Weight: 253.4
Weekly Change: -1.6
Total Change: -12.6
Goal Weight: 135
Pounds to lose until goal: 118.4

So...somehow a month has passed without me writing one of these posts.  I have plenty of excuses as to why not, but they are just that - excuses.  They are a dime a dozen in my weight loss journey and always have been.  I spent most of the month completely stalled on weight loss.  Not gaining (yay!) but not losing either (boo). 

This week I saw some movement in the right direction!  I can't believe I am still stuck in the 250's though.  I've been doing this for far too long to have only seen a total of 12.6 pounds lost.  Our European adventure begins in less than a month, and I am nowhere near the goal I wanted to reach by the time we left. 

And, I have just over two months now to reach my Healthy Wage goal! I need to reach 215 or less by August 27th, in order to win over $500!  If I don't reach it, not only do I not win the $500, I'll lose all the money I've bet between now and then ($20 a month for six months).  I really need to let that goal kick my butt into gear!  I have 38.4 pounds to lose in 63 days which is difficult but doable. 

It's time to get on track and stay there! 

XOXO, Bethany
