Week #12 (actually on time!)
So, I've been thinking about something. I've been really lax here lately with my weight loss. You've read in the past that I will go along fine and then slowly go back to my old ways, then jerk myself back on path, then slowly drift again. This week is no different. I have no photo this week, and I'm also not going to tell you my weight as it is an embarrassment to all I have been trying to do. I have a plan that I'm thinking of, and I'd like to get some feedback if I could on this. Previously, I mentioned that I don't have a goal weight...that I'm just trying to lose weight period. Well, I think that's part of my problem. Because I don't have a goal, I kinda figure I can do what I want when I want. But I've found in the past that I work better under pressure, so therefore I need something to set my sights on...a deadline per se. So what I need now for feedback is for you guys to tell me what a rational weight loss goal is. Like, say, so many pounds a week? Or should I go monthly? Yearly I think would give me too much slack. I'll try to do some research to see if I can find a normal weight loss. Obviously, I don't want to set a goal too outrageous that I can't possibly reach it, like 50 pounds in a month or something like that. And I also know that my weight loss can and/or will possibly slow down over time, that's why I was wondering what a reasonable number is. Let me know what you guys think and hopefully next week embarrassment will be gone and you'll have a number again from me.
