So it turns out, there was one week left to the May Day Weight Loss challenge…..but sadly, I will not close it with a bang. I will close it as I left it last week–just 3 lbs lost in 18 weeks! Oh well…three pounds is three pounds. And besides, if I’d lost my target 10 lbs this summer, whatever would I do with myself this fall?!?! My wrap-up post from last week is here.
Ha. Anyway, if you are a May-Day loser, you know my story. If you are new to Tales from the Scales, most of my story is woven throughout my blog under the “weight loss” tag. The big parts of the story are here (scroll down through the toddler tale) and here.
So for this new challenge, Look Great in 2008, my first goal will be to lose the 4.5 lbs I need to lose to get back down to my lowest weight of the summer ( a mere 4 weeks ago) . The next goal will be to reach 170 lbs AND STAY THERE! To do both, I need to get back into the zone, into the enthusiastic mode I was at the beginning of the May Day challenge.
I CAN DO THIS! I CAN DO THIS!
