    So I've backpedalled. A fair bit.

    New mini-goal: My restarting tracking MFP-versary is in 10 days. Looking to shave a few pounds off my current weight, to reach 52 pounds in 52 weeks.

    From there, the next numeric mini-goal will be reaching 187.3 lbs on the 28-day average. Hoping to reach this on or before September 30th, and it would keep the "52 in 52" thing going, which would be nice.

    I took things pretty strong last fall (Oct-Dec were 12.7, 15, and 10.8 lbs lost respectively on the 28-day average), so there will eventually be a point where I will come up a bit short in that mark -- probably October (I'm finding the mental game is harder as weight moves lower and I am not going to try again for double-digits in a month). It's a nice thought to keep it going as close as I can within reason though. I'll be able to catch up to the 52 in 52 again in late winter/early spring if I'm diligent, as I slowed down then backpedalled after January. Kind of a neat thing I just realized is that I just need to work toward "catching up" to the 52 less than the end of January's average and I'll be in the neighborhood where I am thinking I'll be able to shift into recomposition mode. Crazy. I know it's still months away, but these mini goals really do help to make the transition through the larger game.

    Today it's 122 days until Christmas. My mini goal is to commit to logging and sticking to my deficit for 💯 of these days, which gives me wiggle room to relax on my anniversary and birthday before then.
    I like the feeling of saying I'd do 122 days until Christmas but I want an excess of birthday cake and champagne and holiday cookies to look forward to on occasions.
