Weight Goals

Well, it’s working again; I lost 2 pounds this week.

As I continue to struggle to take off the pounds, people I know are all telling me that I look great, and many of them think that if I lose any more weight I’ll be too skinny. I’m certainly happy; My size is back down to where it used to be years ago (and none of my current clothes fit me anymore :-).

My original goal was 50 pounds, but I’m starting to question that. I don’t want to be one of those people who is constantly obsessing over every pound, which cuts both ways. On the one hand, if I don’t take off enough weight now, I won’t have any margin for error. On the other hand, if I set my weight goal too low, I won’t be happy with the amount of food I can eat to maintain that weight.

I’m not averse to losing more weight, and if I’m going to I should do it now, all at once, while I’m still in the mindset. So it’s time to take a different tack; now that I’ve lost 30 pounds and (more importantly) been eating healthy for 6 months, how’s my health? I’ve booked an appointment with my doctor, and he _loves_ running tests, so I should have a better place from which to make decisions in a couple of weeks.
