It's odd, but I just realized that this week I've hit two major milestones.
One is obvious. I'm turning 40 on Saturday.
The other is less obvious. I've been losing weight over the past 15 weeks with Weight Watchers. I've lost 36.4 lbs. If I lose 100 lbs, I'll have a BMI at almost exactly 25. I would no longer be overweight! I don't think I've been in that territory since pre-adolescence.
If I could maintain a consistent weight loss of 2 lbs a week, I could hit that goal by my next birthday. If I lost at 1 lb a week, I could do it in two years. Barring plateaus, meltdowns, quitting, and any other potential barriers that I may face, I might be able to do it. (So far, I've lost an average of 2.4 lbs/week.)
So, here's to living on the edge for the next 1-2 years.
I'll be Skinny Me!
