Whoa! What a week! First things first, yesterday, I made my second goal. This goal was 29 pounds. I weigh 261 pounds and down a total of 62 pounds. In keeping with my 10% goals, my next one is 26 pounds. Reaching this goal will bring me to 235 pounds (98 pounds off).
My final goal is between 170-155 pounds. I haven’t made that decision yet. I am leaning towards 155 for a variety of psychological reasons. Wherever I land, I will be healthy. My total weight loss will be between 153-168 pounds. I am almost to the halfway point.
Getting here was a shock. I was down with a migraine and didn’t walk for two days. I am thrilled. You can see my progress pictures here, including my goal shot wearing my fat pants.
Today, I also walked five miles (Pecos to Valle Verde and back). It was tough, and I won’t try it again until September. I am feeling much more confident about hiking through the tunnels to the dam in October.
And for the not so thrilling part, I found a psoriasis outbreak on my right elbow. It is much smaller than the outbreak on the left. But, I have medication, so that is happening.
I would love to hear how you are doing! It is so much easier when you are traveling this road with other people.
