The big sale…40% off
I weighed in this morning and I am down another two pounds! This brings my grand total to 40 pounds so far, I have lost my age in weight. I am 40% to my goal, almost half way there! Things that help me gain perspective as to just what that means… losing 40 pounds is like losing….
5 – one gallon jugs of water
an average human leg
a 15 foot canoe
approximately 82 big macs
I want to hit 50 pounds lost by the March 1st weigh in, that would be be right on target for 50 pounds in 6 months, which some might think of as slow in comparison to watching the “biggest loser” or reality shows that produce results in record time. I am not interested in quick fixes, starvation, liquid diets, staples, surgeries, pills, powders with promises of amazing results. I would not trade what I am learning, the shame I am letting go of, and how I am finally loving myself for any quick and easy way to reaching my goals.
The fabulous Dr. Beiter reminded me that I have managed to lose weight during the hardest time of the year, winter. Soon it will be spring and I just can’t wait to get on my bike and see how much faster and farther I can ride with less weight on my frame! Thank you to all the people in my life that continue to support me, love me, and hold the space for me when I stumble and of course to my amazing dogs who remain my lifeline everyday.
