Goal-setting and Life Set-backs

I reached a major milestone yesterday.  I lost 50 pounds.  I have been very excited about this news.  Of course, I have a long way to go. Two more goals (another 50, and the final 40), and I will be at my target weight which is 160.  That seems  way too heavy for normal women, but that’s where I will feel very comfortable.

Losing this much weight takes time and endurance.  I recently injured my foot (plantar fasciitis).  The doctor said I have to stop walking/running for exercise and have to stay off the treadmill.  That is extremely disappointing as I’ve been enjoying the  gym TEAM weight loss program.    Alas, I can swim and lift weights, and possibly  ride a stationary bike, so I will continue to exercise.

So, onto my next goal: the next 50.   That would be 200 pounds.  Sheesh.  It all seems so daunting, but, hey like my last post said, “I’m doing this.”

Have a great day!

  1. I had the same foot problem – it was incredibly annoying, and I still feel twinges two years later, although i can now run more or less normally. Make sure you get good support insoles and wear them always. I think part of my problem was not enough flexibility (couldn’t touch toes), so worked on that, and it seemed to help… Good luck!

    1. I remember you had a foot injury in San Francisco when we had dinner. Couldn’t believe you hobbled along for blocks on end without complaining as we walked back to the hotel.

What do you think?
