Contemplating a Birthday Goal...

So I have a birthday coming up in a few weeks.  32 years old on March 1st.  Not incredibly exciting.  It feels fake, actually, that I couldn't actually be 32.  But it's inevitable I guess!

My next weight loss goal, since I have hit the 80 pounds (woohoo!) was to be under 200 for the first time in probably a decade.  I was 180 when I got married in March of 2000, but I know I gained a good 10-20 the first year.  My sweet hubby saw how happy ice cream made me and we had sundaes every night.  :)  We've come a long way since then!

Anyway, I realized today that I was at 204 on Tuesday for my BL weigh in and that is only 5 pounds from 199.  So I'm contemplating putting a timeline on reaching 199.8.

Can I reach it by March 1?

That would mean losing 4.2 pounds in 17 days.

Is it possible?  Sure, though it would be a stretch for me.

Will I do it?  Don't know yet!  I'm going to try to give it a shot though - why not?  I have nothing to lose but weight.  And either way we know I will lose...I may not reach 199.8, but what if I do?  That would be amazing!  Would be a nice thing to celebrate on my birthday!

Are ya with me?

I think I will Stephanie! It will definitely take some hard work and dedication but I know I can pull it off if I want it badly enough! :)
