I wasn't sure what I was going to post today. I know that I'm excited to be ONE LITTLE POUND from the smallest I have ever been (1999). I'm working on a reward for myself that I CAN'T WAIT to share with you. But it is a surprise!!
Then I started chatting a bit with Debi and Amanda today and realized that isn't good enough. I want more. I want to get to my high school graduation weight and I want to do it by the time I visit my parents at Easter.
So I have 6 weeks to lose 13 pounds. Obviously, it CAN be done. But can I do it? Here's my thinking... I'm already giving up chocolate during that time period, so I might as well dig in and make it a "Swing for the Fences - 6 Week Challenge". Why not, right? I don't know if I can do this, but one thing I do know is that I certainly WON'T if I don't TRY.
So, 13 pounds in 6 weeks means 2.2 pounds per week which means 7,595 calorie deficit per week or 1,085 per day. That is doable! My average calorie burn per day is currently 2,500. I'm going to try and increase that to 2,700 but I'm still trying to decide how. And I'm going to try and limit my calories consumed to 1,500 per day. This is going to be my weakness for sure!!
I'm going to need some cheerleaders! :)
