So I did as I said I would, and ate many treats on holiday. Like cherry pie (a whole one all by myself, over three days). A bag of chips. Coke. Ice cream cone (can I just say, the kind I had? Bolero? Seriously yummy!). Mini-tootsie rolls. More coke.
And yes, I put on a couple of pounds, despite the two long walks.
So I decided it was time for Weight Loss Challenge Two, the Sequel. Actually, it's going to be a trilogy, because I have two events for which I want to lose the weight and keep it off:
A Major Annual Social Event on September 19
and I just confirmed with a friend that we're going south during the winter, probably in February. A coupla crazy chicks on the loose! I want to be a skinny chick on the loose.
So here are the new goals, based on my starting weight of 134.4:
130 pounds by Sept. 19
125 by February (and that's the lowest I intend to go).
This week, I've been on the treadmill three times, an hour each time. I've also been out to lunch, we're out to dinner tonight and visiting family on Sunday, so no exercise that day.
I was thinking I wouldn't have to exercise every day anymore, but I think I'll have to try until the 19th, anyway. Maybe after that, I can cut back a bit, because it is time-consuming.
But hey! I'm up for the challenge, because really, everything looks better on you when you're thinner, I've had a lot less trouble sleeping and I know it's good for my overall health, too.
