It's creeping closer and closer to one year since I started this journey, and I keep creeping closer and closer to my next big milestone of losing 100 pounds. I'm not far from my short term goal of hitting 95 pounds down. I've found that small goals are important to keep me motivated so I set a lot of small goals in 5 pound increments. This week I made it another half pound closer. For those keeping track, I'm now down 91.3 pounds from my starting weight of 286, and I have 44.7 pounds to go to my goal weight.
Wow! I can hardly believe it's been 40 weeks since I started my journey. Part of my motivation at the very beginning was to lose some weight before my cruise coming up in February. I honestly was not sure how successful I would be, but I figured every little bit helped, so even though I still have over 50 pounds to go, I'm thrilled with where I am now
I have been trying to declutter my apartment for quite a while now, and while I've been making slow progress, I've been a bit hindered by the fact that my car is quite far from my apartment, and I can't carry the heavier boxes around the way that I used to.
One of the things I miss the most living in an apartment in the city, is the scent of Lilacs floating on the breeze.
