Way back on on Oct 1st, 2010, I had a goal, lose a lot more weight. I was 337 lbs and had gained back 42 of the original 80 I had lost the prior 15 months. So I told my wife I had a goal.....225 lbs. Well it is 2014, but on Jan 1st, I weighed myself at the gym, 224.6. , but knowing that it could be a goofy scale, one time thing or what ever, I did not celebrate. I just kept at it. Today is Jan 16th and I am still under 225, so I can officially claim I made my goal of 225.
So since I already bought a new bike in November, I'm going to buy some new wheels as my prize.
Now I have a new goal, 200 within the next 12-15 months. I am not out to light the world on fire and have to get there tomorrow or anything like that...slow and steady wins the race in my book.
So if I can do it, you can do it, just keep working at it and don't get discouraged.
