I have a new goal, a new motivation, a new raison d’etre in my life. See my title up there? That’s the goal. I want to be fit by the time I’m 40. I want to hit my 40s looking better than I did in my 30s. I want to feel good about myself and know that I’m healthier than I was in the previous decade.
I have 365 days to make it happen and I will.
I’ve lost 20 pounds since November and have a total of 65 more to go until I hit my target weight. I don’t care if I’ve hit my target weight by May 2, 2009, but I want to have made Serious Progress.
If I lose a pound a week, that’s 52 pounds, which would be wonderful. But we all know how there are just some weeks where things don’t go as planned. So I’m going to keep things realistic. I’m aiming for a pound per week, but if I have lost at least 40 by 52 weeks from now, I’ll think that’s reasonable too.
And no matter what, I won’t berate myself if I have a bad week. I’ll just get up the next day and start fresh.
