BrandyRelaxing's Journal, 11 September 2011

So the scale has spoken. 275... so it's up, but only 3.6 pounds. I know I shouldn't really be celebrating only 3.6 pounds as a result of vacation, but heck, when I landed, I was at 283 (up 12 pounds), so 3.6 pounds is a huge achievement!

So now on to my Healthier by Thanksgiving Challenge. I have to determine what my goal at the end of 4 weeks will be...

1. Weight - Goal to be 8 pounds down - so 267 pounds (yes, in the 260s!!)
2. Exercise - Goal to work out 4 times per week at a minimum, but ideally 5-6 times.
3. Calories - Goal to keep 6/7 days of the week under 2,000 calories.

And as much as I'm still eating food each day which is calorie dense (chocolate!!), I'm still staying within my calories, so I'm going to conclude I'm back on plan!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
275.0 lb Lost so far: 64.0 lb.    Still to go: 76.0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

Brandy I love your new profile pic! You look happy and that's good. Unhappiness sucks. Do not fret about the odd gain, it will drop back off quickly. You're rockin' it!!!
