My Milestone Goal

I'm sure all of you are wondering, "Did she do it? Did she lose the five pounds she needed to to meet her first milestone goal?" Well...not quite. While I am disappointed that I didn't get there, I have to look at the positives:

1. I lost 2.5lbs this week, 6.5lbs in two weeks.
2. Since I started training with Matt in May, I lost 40lbs.
3. My nutrition in improving.
4. My ipod is now working again!

The only huge negative right now is my shin splints are now back, and they're pretty bad. RunTex is transferring some shoes from another store for me to look at, so I'm going tomorrow to try them on.

As my new motto goes: It is what it is.

That's the danger in setting this short term goals - you can make good decisions, and even see success like you did, but you can still feel bad about it. You lost weight and are still on track, that's a great thing. Good job!

You are doing great - don't fret over the numbers on the scale - you can't always predict exact numbers.

I've been on a healthy eating plan for over 80 weeks now (over 90 lbs lost so far) - with a little more then 50ish more to go I'm learning to take each week as it comes.

Thanks y'all for the positive words; I appreciate it a ton. I don't feel too bad about it because the first time I set this goal, I gave myself until I leave for my parents' place for Christmas (which I leave on the 21st), so I still have time to lose the last 2.5lbs to reach my goal.

Thanks again!
