I did it! I met my first goal and in doing so, I have lost ten percent of my original body weight. Cool beans, eh? Oddly, (not really) only two people have commented on this weight loss and one of them reads my blog. Whether it is twenty-five pounds or fifty probably doesn't much matter except to me. I am still fat and will be for a long time. That is what people see when they look at me - if they look at me, even the people that love me. I am sure that one day, people will just look up and notice. It will seem like it just happened and will not realize what a long process it will have been. It doesn't actually matter because I REALLY don't like attention of that nature. It's just an observation.
Twenty-five pounds in nine weeks is a good average. If I continue at the same pace, it will take forty weeks to lose 110 pounds. WOW. That does seem like a long road. That's okay. Right now, today, I am happy with what I have accomplished. Only thirty five pounds to lose until I reach my next goal. I do believe that could take us into October. Blah.
