So now I will announce my 2nd level goal: I want to lose 25 pounds by the end of June. By then, it will be one year of weight loss and hopefully I can say I have lost 75 pounds! I would be totally on target for somone who had the lap band surgery. If you remember, I was 1 step away from that very procedure so to be on target like that without the invasive procedure, I think it would speak volumes!
My reward for when I hit 75 pounds is to do a breast reduction and lift - MUCH NEEDED at this point. Insurance will cover it and I probably would lose another 5 pounds there ha!
My ultimate goal right now is to lose 110 pounds total. That would put me at a BMI of 28.2 which is OUT of the obese category. I would like to maintain that number for a while and work on stabilizing and learning the technics of maintaining your body weight. Maybe after 6 months or so I would like to then try to lose another 25 pounds to put me at a BMI of 24.7 where I would be extremely comfortable for the rest of my life. But that ultimate goal is a LONG way away and I don't like thinking about it to much because it will seem impossible and I will get discouraged. That's why I set these level goals to break it up.
I look forward to the accomplishment of my level 2 goal and I look forward to all of your support and encouragement. I can do this. I WILL do this!!
Help me increase my following! I want to get the word out that there is help and hope for obesety without resorting to surgical methods.
