Looking Great in 2008

Ok I got on the scale this morning and YIKES! I was not pleased but should have known. I am too ashamed to post my results-I will try again tomorrow. I am back on track-and going to keep up with my food journal online again-that should give me a good visual and help me stay on track. I also plan on learning to play tennis. So that should be some great exercise.

Glad to know the "Looking Great in 2008" challenge had been extended to the end of February! That is great! I am going on vacation with my family at the end of January and really hope to drop at least 10 pounds before we leave. Then I will have another month before the end of the challenge and hopefully I can drop another 10 pounds in February.

I have 50 more pounds to lose to be at my goal weight and then the rest will be gravy-hehe. I would love to lose 80 more pounds but I don't know how realistic that will be. If I lose 80 pounds that will put me back to the weight I was when I started college. But I will be satisfied with losing 50 pounds. We will see how it goes. I want to meet this goal by August-my daughter's first birthday. Surely in 8 months I can lose 50 pounds!!

Hope everyone had a great new year. I know I did-and I am paying for it now.

We all had our gains with the holiday and getting back into our healthy habits is the important thing.

You can do it!! Looks like we have very similar goals. I'm aiming for 50 pounds lost by the end of July which is my 30th b-day. I'd like to lose a total of 75-80, but 50 is the biggest chunk I want to chew on for the next 7 months.

If you don't mind, I'd like to add you to my links on my blog :)
