Week 35: 200 Sticks of Butter

Current Weight:  216.8
+/-  this week:  -0.8
+/- this round:   -33
+/- total:    -50.4
Current Short Term Goal:  217 (50 pounds lighter) Reached!
New Short Term Goal:  213.5 (Halfway there - 50% of final goal)

Avg weekly loss needed to reach birthday goal of 200 lbs by age 32: 1.12 lbs/wk

Here I am!  50 pounds lighter than where I started.

I have officially lost the equivalent of my six year old.  Or, my favorite reminder when I start to think a pound isn't that much, I have now lost 200 sticks of butter.  TWO HUNDRED.

It wasn't a GREAT week because I didn't get a ton of exercise, but it was good.  I feel like I am really going somewhere.  With everything that's going on, I've had some hard days, but exciting things are happening which I promise to write more about soon.

I have added a new thing to track up there at the top, the average # of pounds I need to lose per week to reach my goal for my birthday.  I'll adjust it as I weigh in each week.  My new short term goal is 213.5, which will mark the halfway point to my goal.  It's hard for me to believe that I could lose as much as I have, and it's only halfway.  I can't believe that's where I was.  There is probably a lot more to say about that, but not right now because dangit it is midnight again and I'm up, just like every night, I am having a hell of a time getting to bed when I should!
