Week 8 Update

I lost 2 more pounds this week making my total 35lbs in 8 weeks!!! I am really pleased. I have had a really hard last month and still having troubling getting my nose to the grind again. So I am pleased with 2lbs all things considered.
FYI to challenge you on the upcoming holiday season. My nurse told me this week that Americans gain an AVERAGE of 8-10lbs from Thanksgiving to the New Year. WOW!!!!
So in lieu of this fact I have decided to set a goal for the remaining 7 weeks of this year. I am going to shoot to loose 15 more pounds by Dec. 31st. That will put me at 50lbs weight loss - half my goal. It is about 2lbs/week average loss. I think this is a pretty reasonable goal considering most other Americans are gaining almost half that much :)
Also, thanks to a good friend who has also done this diet I now have a handful of skinnier clothes in my closet as my new motivators.
