Recently I stated that I wanted to be under 200 pounds by the anniversary of my surgery on March 31.
I, um, kinda got the dates mixed up. March 1 was the day of my surgery. March 31 was the day I was laid off from my job of 13 years. It was an eventful month.
I weighed 211.8 this morning. That gives me 5 weeks and 6 days to lose 12 pounds to get me under 200. 41 days for 12 pounds.
Can I do it? That's a huge goal. I'm going for it. I'll either achieve it or not. I'll be nearly as thrilled if I make it by March 31, which will be my safety net date.
When I am under 200, my husband says he doesn't care how long it takes, but he promised that when we see 199 on that scale, he's buying me a new dress and taking me out somewhere special. I'm excited!
