My weight loss goal is to lose at least 40 lbs by the time we leave for vacation at the end of June. My ultimate goal is a fair amount more than that, though, and is about 25% of my current weight. That would put me within just a few pounds of the weight that my doctor and I agree is great for my specific body type.
So for my blog posts, I'm going to use percentages off my starting weight, plus percentages off my weight from just the week before.
My doctor said I could safely lose about 1-1.5 percent each week, so my goal is at least a half percentage each week, but hopefully closer to a full one. :)
Last Friday was my first weigh in, and since then I have lost .64%. It's not as much as I was hoping for, especially since my doctor said I might lose even more weight the first 2-3 weeks, but it's a start. :) And as always, a move in the right direction is always a good move.
I'm currently down .64% of my start weight, with a goal of 25% total this year.
