I started trying to lose weight over Memorial Day Weekend (the start of summer). Since then I have l have lost 19.9 lbs. I posted my first Weigh-In Wednesday over Labor Day Weekend. Since then I have lost 3.4 lbs.
Apparently blogging about weight loss isn't helping me much!
When I was doing it on my own and not talking about it I averaged a loss of 1.2 lbs a week (just under my goal of 1.5 a week). Since I've been blogging about it I've only averaged 0.6 lbs a week. At that rate I certainly won't reach my target weight by 2009 - but at least it keeps going in the right direction! I was down 0.3 lbs this week.
The chart I made 6 weeks ago when I started looks a bit daunting as I keep getting closer to the end of my time frame, but not much closer to my goal weight. I'm wondering if I need a new goal.
