That's how much I want to lose by November 4th.
That's 2 pounds a week.
It always sounds easy on paper but when you are surfing pinterest late at night while your hubby is away at a live football draft and all the yummy food is all up in your face, sometimes you just have to go upstairs and fill your bowl with cookie dough ice cream and pour some Hershey's sauce all over it.
I think I'm going to write a big 20 on the palm of my hand, on my bathroom mirror, on my fridge, and maybe I'll even stick a post it note on my computer while I'm surfing pinterest.
Here's my plan:
Sunday, Sept. 2nd- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, Sept. 9th- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, Sept. 16th- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, Sept 23rd- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, Sept. 30th- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, October 7th- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, October 14th- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, October 21st- lose 2 pounds
Sunday, October 28th- lose 2 pounds
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4th- REACH GOAL OF 20 POUNDS LOST!
I know I can do it. It will take a lot of hard work. Determination. God's strength! I need to learn to forgo what I want in the moment for what I really want... to be comfortable in the skin God gave me.
Until then, I'll learn to be content. And smile a lot. And be thankful for where I'm at now.
What about you? Do you have a goal? Writing out your plan may help you.
