We're under a month until BlogHer now, and now is the time where I'm trying to keep myself from getting complacent. It's so easy to look at nearly 20 pounds lost and think, "I've done great. I can totally relax everything a bit, right?"
But that's how I got all of these extra pounds to begin with. It's not like they suddenly appeared overnight. It took several days of choosing an extra serving, or going for something fried over something fresh. So while I'm thrilled at my progress so far, the job ain't over yet.
BlogHer is just a mental deadline for me, and my goal is to step out in Chicago looking and feeling great. Working out and eating better will continue after BlogHer, too, but I'm really hoping to get as far as I can before that weekend.
I'm currently at 194 pounds. Not a lot of change in the past few weeks, mostly due to birthday celebrations and probably too much ice cream. I'm setting a goal of seeing the 180's by the time I leave for BlogHer. Sure, no one else will see the number - it's not like someone is going to look at me and say "Girl, look at you! How does it feel to be in the 180's?" but I'll know it.
How is your progress right now? Still chugging along, going full speed, or stalled out? Start thinking about what has worked best for you so far, because on Monday I'm going to have a new challenge to help push us all the way until BlogHer!
