Apparently, sitting around doing nothing is good for weight loss. Today marks three weeks since I started this diet, and once again, Sunday’s weight loss was huge! 5.4 pounds down this morning, and this after a week of ups and downs including being up 4.7 pounds on Tuesday. I honestly thought I was going to be higher today than last week, which would have been very disappointing. (I’m down only 9/10 of a pound, but down is down.)
What’s more amazing is that I’m once again flirting with 350. I so want to be below it. 350 was the magic number. I always said if I got to 350, I would see a doctor about a surgical solution. And then, when I got there, I just…didn’t. I actually got up to 365 at one point, and still didn’t. I’m too afraid of the life-long effects of the surgery. I just didn’t want to do that. Well, maybe I won’t have to.
Once I get below 350, I’ll start aiming for 335, which is where I was when I started TOPS years ago. And then I’ll shoot for 300. Somewhere around 300, I start being able to fit in one airline seat. That will be a huge accomplishment.
Long term, I think my goal is 200, which I might be able to make by 2012. Maybe when I get to 200 I’ll want to go lower. In fact I probably will. But right now, if someone told me I had to live the rest of my life overweight, but I would be 150 pounds lighter than I am now, I would be satisfied.
