    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    A pound a week seems reasonable. Why is it so hard?
    48 down 4 weeks till 2022 🎉

    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 Starting Weight: 245 (1/2/2019) BMI 43.4
    2020 Starting Weight: 235 (1/1/2020) BMI 41.6
    2021 Starting Weight: 212 (1/1/2021) BMI 37.6
    Goal for 2021: <200 (Dr set target to reach & stay under 200)
    Stretch Goal for 2021: <170 (Overweight instead of obese)
    Note: Lowest in August 201.1

    Past week's successes: Clean bill of health at the final doctor's appt for the year. Only issue to address is my weight ... which is totally under my control alone.
    This week's challenges: Need to put on the full press court and get back to healthier eating!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🎉 Well 2021 was a wash in that I lost 11 lbs but gained 8 back for a total loss of 3 lbs. Lost all my progress starting in October on a 16 day roadtrip and then just kept sliding. BUT I did meet Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last . Now to make the goal I’ve set for the past 2 years … <200 (Dr set target to reach & stay under 200).

    52 weeks - 52 lbs... wow if I could do that maybe I could sit more comfortably in an airline seat.
