I've done this several times before but it doesn't always work for me. Now that I'm mentally where I was the last time I lost a significant amount of weight I'm ready to do this again. Weekly weight goals!!!
Wanna know why?
My 20th high school reunion is in less than six months.
It's such a cliche, I know, but you can't deny it's great motivation.
In 2010, I blogged about an informal high school reunion with several classmates I hadn't seen in over 15 years. Here's part of what I wrote:
This get together was only planned a few weeks ago and I'm happy to say
my reaction to the invitation was excitement. Had this reunion been a
couple of years ago I might not have even gone because of my weight. I
was excited to go shopping for a new top; something I would have dreaded
a couple of years ago.
My goal is to lose just over 25 pounds by the time I go to my reunion at
the end of September. To do that I will need to lose just slightly more
than a pound a week. Here's my handy dandy Excel spreadsheet:
This bad boy is getting ready to be taped to my desk!
I have a lot of upcoming events I want to look my best for including:
April - Gracie's First Communion
May - Memorial Day
June - Alumni Dinner at Summer Camp
July - Parties, Business Trips and Family Vacations
September - 20th High School Reunion
What upcoming event do you what to look your best for? Do you set a weekly weight goal for yourself? Why or why not? What's your high school reunion story.
