My Personal 8-Week Challenge

A year ago I weighed roughly 177 pounds. I weighed in this morning at 198. Yep. I started this journey over two years ago at 233, dropped down to 177, and then shot back up to 198. I'm happy I haven't eclipsed 200, but the increase has been buggin'.

I decided to do a personal challenge for 8 weeks. I'm going to try my darndest to get down to the 170s again by May 14. If I lose at least 2 pounds a week I can get close, and that's sort of my realistic goal, to get to the low 180s by May 14.

Here I go!

yay bird!

My 8 week challenge includes getting married, moving house, having a few baby related doctors appointments (a scan and a meet with the midwife) and probably a few other things.
I don't think I'm going to be losing weight (although with a marriage soon, and lots still to plan, maybe I will be!)
