Argh! Pass the Grog, Matey! I've Reached a Goal!

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Argh! It's annual Talk Like a Pirate Day, and I've taken on my Pirate persona, that of the lusty wench Jenny Kidd, and I'm here to give ye the news!

Ahem. I feel like The Albino describing the Pit of Despair.

Today I reached a significant goal in my Weight Watchers journey.
I've lost 10% of my body weight, which translates into significant health benefits such as lower cholesterol and blood pressure and a reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes. As a token of my accomplishment, I was given this cool 10% key chain to commemorate the occasion. As my leader says, "Ooo! Ahh! Fabulous!"

The next step is supposed to be for me to set my final weight goal. I set that goal some time ago, however, so instead I'll be setting my next short term goal. I think the 10% goal is as good as any, so my next goal will be an additional 10% of my original weight. I'm on track with my goal of losing 65 pounds in a year, so I'm feeling pretty good today.

Go, me.

What ho! I say, old chap! I mean.... arrrggggh, well done, matey!
Suggestion: final weight goal: make it higher than what you finally want to weigh so that, when reaching your REAL goal and maintaining you don't keep falling into the pit of despair when you go back up (temporarily) and have to pay for doing that.
(Old trick shared by an old lifer).
