As you can see from the chart, above, my next major goal is to reach 203 pounds, which puts me into the "overweight" category as compared to "obese", my current status. That's a loss of a further 33.9 pounds, give or take. Based on how long it took me to reach this goal, I expect that I will hit Goal #6 sometime around the end of July or mid-August. From there it is a further 34 pounds to get into the "normal" range, but I can't even think about that one yet. Too far out.
It's easy at times like this to get impatient and try to rush things, but the truth of the matter is that I have a further 68.6 pounds to lose, and it is going to take some time to get rid of that weight. The weight did not go on all at once, and it's not going to come off all at once (barring some sort of traumatic amputation, of course). It's doubly important now for me to keep focused on checking off the plan each day, to try and hit each week so that I can maintain my forward progress. No point in getting all cocky now and blowing all the good work I have done to date.
And the changes are happening all over. I think I am approaching a size 18 (down from size 26), but I won't know for sure until I do my measurements at the end of the month. The size 20 suits are becoming very loose on me, and where they once did not do up, now are gaping. I like that.
We'll see what changes, if any, show up in the end of the month measurements in a couple of days. Onward and downward!
