8.8.2020 Check-in and HAZEL!!!

8.8.2020 261 pounds & Hazel!!!!!!

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.

  1. Great work, and congratulations on your goal achievement! Sorry to hear about your psoriasis. I am sure you will eventually reach the balance your body needs/can tolerate.

    Keep up the good work; I’m excited for your hike in October. I want you to know you have inspired me to start walking again. I am 6 days for 6 this week!
