It's been a while since I've updated all of you on my diet progress, so I thought that today, for those of you who have been following along - being wonderful cheerleaders, I might add - I'd let you know how far I've come and how far I still have to go.
As of this morning, I have lost 65 pounds.
So many people ask when I'm going to stop, and that's a question that's not easy to answer. While I use the scale as a measure of my progress, I am relying on the way I look and feel as the final indicator. I can say that I'm not finished losing, and after the loss - there will be maintenance - so I guess I'll never "stop".
I have goals set for particular dates that mean something to me. For instance, I celebrate my 8-year anniversary with Scott this Saturday, then I turn 32 on May 10th, I sing in a concert series May 16-18th, and I show in my last show house the beginning of June. All of these dates have goals attached to them, both a mental visual and a physical scale reading that I hope to achieve.
So how far do I have to go?
Likely another 20-30 pounds.
Trust me, I know! But I'll get there ... eventually.
