Still going...

Although it seems like I'm straggling at times, I am still here! I did not make my December goals as I took a little time off for Christmas goodies.

I think that Caleb has a milk allergy, so now I am trying to cut out all milk products while he is nursing. Boy, I think this will really help with my weight loss effort! No cookies, ice cream, or chocolate. It's definitely challenging. I did buy some little non-milk candies to satisfy my sweet tooth in the meantime. :o)

Neal has set up a new challenge for me with a specific goal in mind. He said if I get to a certain weight (which will be 13 pounds to go--so 9 pounds down from today's weigh in) by February 1, 2010, that he will take me out on a dinner and movie date. It's very motivating for me!

I am hoping with Neal's challenge and the lack of milk-laden goodies, plus the help of the Lord to have self control (which I desperately need), that I might be able to achieve my goals soon enough. I hope to come back this Friday to post my progress.

New Goal

I have decided that I want to strive to reach my goal weight by Caleb's first birthday. I looked on the calendar, and if I added it up right, Caleb's birthday is exacty 19 weeks from today. I may weigh in on Friday or Saturday; not sure which one yet. Starting with this morning, here's where I'm at.

Weight lost so far: 15 lbs.
Weight left to lose: 22.8 lbs.
Weeks left to reach goal weight: 19 weeks

My hope is to get under the 20 pounds to go mark by December 17th (Caleb turns 8 months that day). I also hope to lose 4 pounds between now and Christmas. If I can do that, I will basically be at my pre-Caleb pregnancy weight. :o)

First Friday back.

Alright! Back here for my Friday report. I will compare this week to the last time I posted a weight update. Looks like the last time I reported I had 24.8 lbs. to go, so I am down 1.6 pounds from then.

23.2 pounds to go!

Wow, really???

I knew I'd been putting off updating my blog for a while now, but I didn't realize it'd been this long. I didn't post anything for the entire month of November! Wow! Okay, well, my goal has been to post every Friday. I've been floundering the last month or so. I will stick to my diet a few days, then go off a few days, then diet a few days, etc. etc. etc. I know I HAVE to stick with it if I want to make any progress. I am journaling today (started back yesterday) and plan to come here Friday to post my progress at that point. Please keep me accountable! Thanks for reading.
