Can the goal be obtained?

So today I walked at lunch, which felt good. The last two days I have been using these bike pedals that I got for Christmas. They just sit on the floor; obviously there is not a bike involved. I thought I better give myself a break from that, although I still did it while I was on hold to an insurance company!

A lady who we refer people to at work, walked by my office and said “you’ve lost a lot of weight, haven’t you?” Of course I told her the exact amount of 48.6 pounds! It is always nice when people can tell you have lost, it makes all your hard work worth the effort!

I am hoping that tomorrow at weigh in I will be able to say I have lost 50 pounds. I am trying not to think to hard on it. I am thinking though that if I don’t get to 50 pounds this week that my 60 pounds by December 31st may not happen. Although, that is ok, because I am still so much farther than I was last year at this time! I will still try though. I suppose it can be done if I work really hard! We are going to Florida for Christmas and I told Justin that I will have to weigh in while we are there. I don’t want to fall off track and the meetings really help with keeping on track.

Oh, I have some good news to share! But I can’t share it in my blog. If you know my email you are welcome to email me and I will share it with you!!! (I should probably mention that it is not about me)

Isn't it great when people do notice! You are doing such a great job! I think you can still reach your goal!! Yes I do know what you mean about expecting to gain, but being really happy when you don't. I have been sick this week and haven't been able to get out and walk and it makes me feel even worse. The good news is that I only gained about a pound from it. Next week I am hoping I am over this cold and can get out again. I will just have to work harder to make up for this week.
