Weight Loss Goals

Realistically, I understand that I can’t guarantee that I will lose any weight from week to week. However, I am a very goal oriented person and I like to set small goals for myself to achieve in order to reach the big end goal. I’m also a visual learner and I like to SEE my goals. This morning I decided to map it all out in a very simple form just to see how long it would theoretically take to get to under 200lbs. I have started this journey SO many times over the last 20 years, but I feel like I have a real handle on what a healthy me looks like and how to get there safely and slowly. I know weight loss is easier for the first few months, and it becomes harder the closer you get to your goal. So I probably won’t actually reach my goal in the time frame allotted, but at least I have a visual of something to aim for. This can easily be adjusted in the future to account for plateaus and big loss weeks. As it is mapped out, I have set a goal of 2lbs per week for the first few months, followed by a 1lb per week loss which will put me under 200lbs by December 5th. Adjusting for reality, I figure I will be under 200lbs by spring of 2022 and that is completely doable!

Current weight – Feb 15 – 254.2lbs & my goal was 257. I kicked that goal’s butt!
