I'm Through almost a Third of a Pie?
I can't believe that I have done this! A new perspective of my accomplishments and progress towards my ultimate goal of losing 120 pounds. That is a pretty decent hunk of my progress pie right there!
The numbers and letters are a little hard to read. The blue section says I have 85 pounds left to lose(70.8% of my goal) and the green section says I've lost 35 pounds(29.2% of my goal) All that blue tells me that I have got a long way to go still but that green piece tells me that I am getting there!
I know that people tend to lose a lot of weight in the beginning and then plateau for a while. I've been waiting for this and have been sort of expecting it at each of my weigh ins only to be surprised with a string of weekly 4 pound losses. My goal from the start was to lose 2-3 pounds per week. Each Monday before I step on the scale I prepare myself to not be disappointed that I didn't reach that goal. That I might weigh the same as the week before or maybe even more but each time I am truly amazed.
Maybe this week it will happen? As good as I am doing there is still that voice in my head Monday morning wondering: "Did I do enough this week? I should of done more." It's only Saturday and I am already wondering about it.
