So, I wanted to share a bit more about my weight loss goals. I made (what I think to be) a very reasonable list of my goals. I really just want to be under 200 by the end of the year. Of course I plan to lose more after that, but for now, meeting this goal is what I'm focusing on. To get there, I would have to lose 6.5 pounds per month. Considering most say that a "healthy" weight loss rate is 1-2 pounds per week, I figured this plan would be just about right. When I made this list I weighed 259.2. Anyway, here is the breakdown of my goals:
End of March goal - 253.5
End of April goal - 247.0
End of May goal - 240.5
End of June goal - 234.0
End of July goal - 227.5
End of August goal - 221.0
End of September goal - 214.5
End of October goal - 208.0
End of November goal - 201.5
End of December goal - 195!!!
I'm already a bit ahead, which I am so incredibly excited about!!! Technically, I've already achieved my end of April goal and its only April 5th! I know that I probably won't be ahead of my goals throughout this whole process. I'm aware that weight drops off a lot faster towards the beginning of the diet. However, I will keep trying to meet or surpass my goals every month! I made a weight loss goals page at the end of my Erin Condren life planner to have a visual and bright reminder and I love the way it looks. (photo below) It's a great reminder as well as a motivator. I can't wait for the end of every month so I can fill in my weight loss!!
By the way, when I purchased my life planner I was able to get $10 off by signing up on their website. I'm pretty sure they still have the same promotion for first time buyers!!
Good luck to everyone on a similar journey!! If you'd like to follow me on
