You might notice the little ticker at the top of this blog. And underneath where it says "40 pounds to go."
Yes, it's time to get serious about losing weight. The pounds have managed to creep on during the last few years. But that's going to stop - and stop now.
I just found out that my high school reunion - the 50th! - is scheduled for October. I went to the 40th, and I was at a really good weight at the time. There's no way I'm going back for this one at my current weight.
Now that I have a definite date, I can set some realistic goals for myself. I have 8 months to lose 40 pounds - a very do-able 5 pounds a month. So my Weight Watcher points charts have come out from the recesses of my desk and I'm back on track. Exercise is going to be a part of this weight loss too. At least four times a week I'll be bowling, exercising, and/or walking.
Keep watching that ticker - I plan on moving that pink flower all the way to the right!
