Weigh-In Wednesday: Goals

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

Wow! Week 6 of the Sisterhood’s Shrink Into Summer challenge has gotten here fast! How are you doing? We only have two weeks left!

I had a decent week as far as food and exercise goes. I’m not bowling for the summer, so I did work out extra on Thursday. I do expect some sort of loss this week. I have had a few stresses this week though, so if I do gain, it could be related to that. Let’s find out:

Last week’s weight: 145.6
This week’s weight: 144.6

A pound! That’s freaking awesome for me! Gone are the days of losing 4 lbs a week because I just don’t have it to lose, so anything a lb and over is just great! With two weeks left in the challenge, I know I’m no where near my 10 lb goal for the challenge, but you know what? I’m just fine with it because our ultimate goal in all of this is to lose, so as long as I’m doing that, I feel great.

It reminds me a bit of my original goal. You know, way back when? When I first decided to get healthy I set my goal weight at 140. I chose this number because I knew it was a number I could get to because I had been close to this number before. It was the safe goal. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I was selling myself short. If I stuck with 140 as my goal, then I would get there and never know IF I could get to the 130’s, which was actually better for someone my height.

At that moment, I decided not to sell myself short and decided to shoot for the stars. My goal became 130. (My doctor confirmed that this is a good weight for me.) And all of that time ago, it seemed a little overwhelming, but I never have doubted that I will get there. And I will. I only have 14.6 lbs to go!

I may not reach my 10lb goal for the challenge, but you will always see me set a high goal for myself. I will always shoot for those stars!

So, don’t sell yourself short! Reach for the stars because you CAN do it! It’ll be a struggle and a pain in the ass sometimes, but it can be done! If the laziest person in the world can do it (that = me), then you can do it!

So tell me, what is your goal? Have you reached for the stars?

Yay you!

YES! What a great attitude!! I've kind of done the same thing ~ setting my goal a little lower (higher weight) than I would really love because I just don't know how realistic the "ideal" is. Might have to ask my doctor and set my sights a little higher, too!! Keep up the great work!!

Congrats!! :)

My doctor won't help me set a goal "you'll never be a size 4 but you're healthy" so I have no clue if i'm being reasonable or not.

I wanna be 125 (almost a 10 # loss)...at this rate it looks like 130 isn't all that reasonable.

Great Job on the loss! I had a 10# goal for this challenge too. Life got in the way. It happens...we all just pick up and move on.

That is awesome April! I am so proud of you, esp with the stress over the last week.

My goal is to get to 150 and right now, that seems so incredibly far away....about 25lbs away, ha ha.

Ann said...

Congrats on another pound gone!! Each and every pounds counts!! Keep it up...
My goals for this challenge is to lose 20 pounds but I'm only down 13.6 pounds with 2 weeks left I don't really see that happening. But I want to get as close as I can to it...

Vickie said...

Woo hoo, a pound outta here!! You are doing great!

I would love to get to 138 pounds. That was how much I weighed before I had kids. But, I am really right now, shooting for 150 pounds.
