I am down 4 lbs from last week! How about that, exercise really DOES make a difference. :D
This puts me just 7.5 lbs from my first mini-goal, and achieving a 10% loss in my initial weight. I'd like to lose that before my October doctor visit, but I'll have to work hard to make that happen.
This also brings me to 6.5 lbs of the 60 lb challenge with Kathy. Goodness, that is 10% of the way there (already). The blue countdown clock in the right side bar is counting down to that challenge's goal date, August 20, 2011.
I am officially down a full clothing size. The weight loss feels terrific, but the real news this week is in the waist size. I dropped more than an inch this week. Incredible. I am also very pleased to see my BMI drop into the 45 range. Last December, I could reverse those numbers (literally).
Looking forward, I'd like to hit 277 lbs (my 10% mini-goal) and then reset my next mini-goal for 247 - another 30 lb loss/goal. 247 lbs (by the chart at the lower right of my blog) will bring me out of the morbidly obese category. Won't that be something?!! This is a journey to improved health, and I'm getting there, one good decision at a time.
Day 41, heading into September a full 22.5 lbs lighter than I was on July 20th ...
