Another Commitment

Back in September I decided that I must lose a bit of weight over the next few months. I say a bit, but you know I mean a LOT!

I can lose weight quickly, if I really try, especially if I walk a lot. However, when I do that it ends up giving me lots of trouble with my back. When I walk I first lose around my hips and waist, and I guess that causes a re-distribution of weight that effects my scoliosis, bad discs, and the nerves that are already damaged down there.

But if I lose slowly, it doesn't pain me as much. Since slower is the way to go, anyway, I set myself a simple, reachable goal of 2 pounds in the month of October. I know that doesn't seem like much, but I figured if I reached it, I would be encouraged and more likely to keep it off and keep taking it off in future months.

I began October at 1*5.8. Yesterday morning when I weighed I was 1*3.4. So I reached my goal, plus 4 extra ounces. Yay, me!

My goal for November is to lose another 2 pounds.

Goals that seem hard to achieve remind me of Dory from "Finding Nemo"... "just keep swimming, just keep swimming..." you'll do it!!
