yes, I know its a lofty goal........ but I know I can do it if I stay on course. Avoiding alcohol and sugar seem to be really big on my successes list. When I do both of those - and watch the overall calories, and move everyday - the weight comes off at a fairly steady pace. Its when I give in to the dessert or alcohol cravings that I find myself in a stall. I have 38 weeks to go -- thats a touch less than 1.5 pounds per week. I know its possible to do it -- might be tough at times, but its totally possible. I don't have quite 50 pounds to go - and likely I won't get under 140 as history tells me that seems to be my set adult weight --- this morning I was 183.6 so thats really 48.6 to my dream goal.......... 43.6 to my realistic goal. So, if you look at that way, 44 pounds in 38 weeks is pretty doable. I'm determined! And I feel confident that I will be able to keep the weight off now that I've been eating this way for so long. By my birthday it will be 20 months since I changed my diet to primal/paleo. I think its pretty much a part of me now. If I don't actually make it then I know I will be close - but I have to have a goal weight date set or I tend to do the mind game thing of "oh, this once won't hurt.......... " Those "onces" come far to often unless I can see a date on the calendar that I want to acheive my goal.
