Okay, so.... I'm getting on a plane in 9 1/2 weeks (hey wasn't that a semi-dirty movie back in the day?) to go visit my niece in San Francisco. This will be the first time I've flown in over 8 years, and I'm a bit nervous about it. While I'm definitely at a lower weight than I've been on any previous flight (with the exception of my honeymoon, when I was probably 25-30 lbs lighter), it's still a little nerve wracking. My weight distribution is different than it once was, and I carry a lot in my lower belly (or the "apron" as I've seen it called") which hasn't shrunk in proportion with the rest of me. Although it's quite a bit smaller than it used to be, so yay me! My wish is to not need an extender, but I've used them before, so it's not a big deal.
I would love to hit the 100 lb lost mark by the time I leave. That would require me to lose 15.2 lbs in a little over 9 weeks. Based on my weight loss history, that's a pretty aggressive goal - just over a pound and a half per week. So while I'm writing this, I'm also devising a strategy in my head that I'll be committing to paper a little later on to help me reach this goal. I'm including all the all-star elements of successful weight loss - menu planning, activity, lots of water and tracking! I'll also be using this blog and my FB page to keep communicating, since I think it's going to be key in my adherence to the battle plan!
More to come!
