Started journaling my food as of yesterday. Did really well right up until after dinner, when the ice cream got the best of me.
All things considered, I feel pretty good about where I'm at. I'm sad, because it's been years of working at this and I am still fat.
This is an indication that I have not been working at it hard enough. So, it's a new day. Time for renewal.
- Lose a total of 70 additional pounds. This will take a lot of pressure off my knees, which will give me ...
- Increased comfort in my knees. Physical therapy can only do so much.
- Be able to run - actually run - a 5k in spring of 2011.
- Complete the Muddy Buddy in 2011 in less time than I did in 2010.
Current weight - 240
Weight-loss goal #1 (10% of 240) - 24 pounds
Reward at 216 pounds: pedicure.
Weight-loss goal #2 (10% of 216) - 22 pounds
Reward at 194 pounds: shout from the rooftops because I'm under 200, and a massage.
Weight-loss goal #3 (10% of 194) - 20 pounds
Reward at 174 pounds: full drawer of new underwear.
Final weight-loss goal - 4 to 10 pounds
Reward at 170 - 164 pounds: spa day.
That's it. Just four increments. I can so totally get there, bit by little bit. How long 'til I reach my first goal?
