A New Goal

Yes, I know it's been a while since I've posted...I was reveling in my success! (just kidding....well, sort of) I was actually thinking about setting my next goal. I do want to run the 5K at the parish festival in 2 weeks, but since I've been sick for about 2 1/2 weeks recovering from the flu, I'm not sure if that's still a smart goal.

In lieu of that, I'm setting up a new goal. I've been carrying around these 10 pounds of extra weight for years (too many to admit to) and I have tried numerous times to lose it. Well, since I've been successful with this method of posting and finding accountability on this blog, I'm going to try again.

I know from experience that you can't know when you get there if you don't know where you started. I weighed myself this morning at 158 pounds, so that makes my goal weight 148 pounds. I was feeling wildly optimistic last night and grabbed a swim suit off the clearance rack at Target while shopping with my daughter. As soon as I find my camera (it's somewhere in this house!) I'll take a picture of it (not with me in it....I'm just not that brave) and post it.

I'm setting a goal of 2 pounds per week. I'm going to try this first week without help, but if I can't get it going, I'll sign up for Weight Watchers.

Anyone want to do this with me?
