Monday Night Weigh-in

This week I lost 1.2 pounds and I'm completely ok with that. Now if I lose 1.2 more next week, I'll have lost a total of 60 pounds! This was a hard 1.2 to lose. After a couple weeks of slacking off, I really buckled down on activity and tracking this week. For next week, one of my nutrition goals is to eat less pre-packaged food. I also need to try and get in enough fluid, especially since I'm being more active.

Approximately 15 pounds til goal weight. The high end of my reccommended weight is 137 and I picked 130, which is somewhere in the middle. As I get closer to goal, I'll see how I feel in my body and maybe I will decide I want to be heavier. People have been assuming I am very close to my goal and are wondering if I will look too thin 15 pounds lighter. One lady at my WW meeting tonight joked that if I lost any more weight I'd have to put weights on my ancles. I am fairly lean and muscular already, maybe I should revise my goal???

I get confused about "goal" weight... after you get to it can you later decide you want to change it?
Congrats on the great loss!! I am soo jealous- can't wait to hit 60- I am about 43 now and really trying to make the next 30 days a "fresh start" after a summer of slacking!!!
Can't wait to see some before / after pics!!! Maybe?

I am not sure. I'm also confused about goal weight. I don't feel that the recommended weight range for my height represents what is truly healthy for me, personally.

I've been following your blog and you've been very consistent in your losses. The summer can be very challenging, with all the Barbecues and family functions. You should be proud. Good luck on the return to your routine. I know you will be successful!

When are you going to post your before and afters? :)
