When I first started this process, I set a goal for myself. I wanted to have a go weight so that I knew where I wanted to stop and how much weight I wanted to lose. When I was in high school, I weighed between 125-135. I know that the average weight for a woman my height can range from 106-140 depending upon the size of her frame. I believe I have a medium frame. The average weight for a woman who is 5’1″ with an average frame is 115-129.
I would love to be in that range, 115-129. That would be perfect. But, I am not too concerned with perfection. I am very concerned about my health. If I end up in the 125-135 range, but I’m in good health, I will be happy. Heck, I’d even go up to 145 as long as I am healthy and can do everything I want to do and can fit into cute clothes. I would just be tickled pink.
That said, I do have a goal weight. My goal weight is 125. I do not know if I will ever get there, but that’s it. To reach 125, I have to lose 173 pounds off of my original weight.
Well, today I am proud to announces that I have reached the half-way point. I weigh 212 pounds. That means that I have lost 86 pounds, 86.5 being half of 175, so roughly estimated, I have lost half of the weight I need to reach my goal weight.
That is all I have to report today. I just had to blog to say, “Yay me!”
