Goal #3: 208-no longer obese (also -47 lbs, just over halfway)
Goal #4: 199-ONEDERLAND (-56)
Goal #5: 170-weight when Hubs and I met and started dating (-85)

My last goal is 165. That's my final, but we'll see how that looks when I get closer. The ideal weight for my height (just under 5' 10") is anywhere between 130 and 170. We'll see...

I just realized that I'm so pathetic that I don't even get to lose 100lbs...oh well 90 will have to do. That's plenty enough.



Blast from the past!
And here I am 2 years later whining because I gained 10lb in water and muscle and am stuck at 160...

I just hit my last--and biggest--mini goal: getting under 150. It's been well over 20 years, you guys!

I've had to add some more mini goals because the distance between goals is too far!

Goal 2 1/2: Get to the "50 pounds lost" mark (187.6) (done today!)
Goal 2 3/4: Get into the 170s

Wow, 50 pounds lost! That is a big goal, not a mini. For patients at Dr Westman's clinic when they lose 50 pounds, he sits down at an old piano in the back and the whole staff sings a favorite song. Hear us all singing "you sexy thing. I believe in miracles" by Hot Chocolate. for you today!
