debneedham's Journal, 26 March 2012

I am on final approach on my diet challenge at work. Two lbs to go, and 2.5 weeks to do it in. Concentrating SUPER hard on everything I eat because I am worried that water retention could make me miss my target on the final weigh in day. I am just going to do my best to be perfect every single day, and hope I can pinch off an extra couple of lbs to feel more secure on April 13.

Depending on how the other women in the pool do on their diets, I could get anywhere from $400 to $1200 because only 3 of us are even close to making goal weight. (We will split the pool money among those who met their targets). I could definitely use the extra money right now. Besides, some new clothes are in order!

Even if I missed my goal, though, I am so much happier at this new lighter weight. Since I started my diet on Jan 1 (and started tracking Jan 13 or 14 here) I have already lost 17 lbs by going Primal. After this challenge is over I still want to lose a few more, as in my experience, no matter what you do, while your body is adjusting to maintenance eating, there are inevitably a few lbs that creep back on before you stabilize. I would like to eventually permanently stabilize at 130, which is good for me. Still curvy but not flabby. So I am planning to lose down to 125, which is by no means skinny either.
137.0 lb Lost so far: 17.0 lb.    Still to go: 10.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.
