It’s December!!!! December 1, 2006 at 12:26 pm

I almost cannot believe that another year has nearly past. Even the time that I have spent on the 20/20 Lifestyles Program has really seemed to have flown by.

My weight this week wasn’t bad overall. From the time that I spoke with my dietician last to this week I lost weight on her records. However, I know that last Friday I was at 250 and I am still at 250 this Friday. I wish I could blame it on the holidays, but I know better! I am happy that the fluctuation abated by the time I was weighed in. At least it wasn’t a numerical setback! As my dietician continually reminds me, I am doing a phenomenal job and 78 pounds is nothing to sneeze at! I recently picked up two 35 pound dumbbells and walked around with them for a while. That put it in perspective in a lot of ways.

So it remains to be seen if I hit 240 by Christmas or not! I have three weeks left and at about 3 pounds a week it could be doable. That would put me in at -88 pounds for Phase 1. A nice birthday present to myself would be consistently under 240. It is a short term goal for 5 weeks. At just 2 pounds a week I can make that. If this week is an indicator of a little plateau, losing weight for me might become much more difficult and I don’t want to set the bar too high! I won’t complain if I hit an average of 4 pounds a week either!
