Today I am at my lowest weight in 20 years! I hit the 180s and today I am 189.4 pounds! Happy dance!

I've accomplished something major this year! My interim goal was to get to the 180s before the end of the year! I have 38 more days this year to continue losing. My next major interim goal is 179.0 pounds when my BMI changes from obese to overweight. I am a realist. If I stay in the 180s till the end of the year I consider it a job well done.

Each time I eat, I repeat to myself - Prof. Brian Wansink study states - your weight is likely the lowest it will be for the rest of the year unless you TAKE IMMEDIATE action... upcoming events like Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, parties, etc. are all occasions where we tend to overeat or make poor food choices. Weight gained in these last weeks of the year can take up to 5 months to take off in 2020!

It's working for me! Yes, I do repeat it out loud and in detail! In the time it takes to say it, I get focused on making a better food choice. I don't have to make an excellent choice, just a better choice.

I've been doing the 5% Challenge and it's motivated me to set goals, lose weight, and become healthier. Join the Fall 5% Challenge now and you will get info about joining the Winter 5% Challenge. Let's do it together!
