My new goal weight is 118lbs. Mainly because I know I won't stay there and I am hoping to fall in the 120-124lbs range. 126 will be my max.
I'm currently 128, so I have exactly 10 lbs to go.
It's getting increasingly more difficult to lose. Sometimes I wish I were 180 again and be able to lose 10,15,20 lbs in a month.
People get on my case a lot but don't seem to realize I've only really lost about 15 lbs in the last year.
We can't become complacent. People say "You look fine! Why keep losing?"
Well, because I started something I want to finish.
How easy would it have been to have stopped at 140 or 150.
The reason I push myself so hard is because it becomes harder and harder to lose as you go. Plateaus, people telling you you look good, you thinking you look good and take a break and gain 5 lbs in a few weeks.
Don't start something you can't finish. Don't make promises you can't keep, especially to yourself.
