I did it! I made it to my first hard goal. I am going to Vegas in a few more weeks and I had set a realistic goal (1.5 pounds per week) of dropping 30 pounds by the time I went. I set a hard goal of 30 pounds and a soft goal of 35. Since I am still a few weeks out, I am now going to shoot for the 35 pounds. I was actually down 30.5 pounds this morning (and you know how important that extra .5 is). Woohoo!
The first goal of dropping 35 pounds will put me at the weight I was before I quit smoking a little over 2 years ago. The next goal will be dropping an additional 20 pounds, or 55 pounds total which will put me where I was when we moved here 9 years ago.
Vegas is going to prove interesting. We have paid for this 24 hour meal plan called "The Buffet of Buffets". There are 7 hotels participating and you get to go to any or all of their buffets as often as you want for 24 hours. That will be my splurge day for June and I will be careful the rest of the week. I guess I really don't need to worry about Vegas for a few weeks but having the splurge day already scheduled will help keep me on track for the next 4 weeks.
Have a great rest of the weekend from The Tortoise's Weigh!
