New Year. New Goals.

When we last checked in with our heroine, she was basking in the glory of having exceeded her year one weight loss goal by 30 pounds for a total loss of 80 pounds.

HOORAY!  Throw confetti. Dance with wild abandon in the street. Toot many celebratory horns (but not those uber-annoying vuvuzelas, please!).

I’d say hoist me up on your shoulders, but I care for your physical welfare – I didn’t lose THAT much weight!


I rested comfortably on my laurels for a minute.  Now, I’m done.  Plus, it’s kinda creepy to refer to myself in the third person.  I fear the use of a “royal WE”.  Moving on…

On to the new year and new goal.  Last year’s success is over and done.  I’m forging ahead to address the next challenge.  It’s 2012, so I have another 50 pounds to lose.

Imagine carrying around 100 of these suckers every minute of every day!

50 is too big a number to consider, so I’m breaking it into smaller, more manageable increments.  My first milestone for the year is to lose 20 pounds by March 31st. That will mark a 100-pound loss.

100 pounds. That’s a mouthful. Well, technically, it marks a dramatic reduction in my mouthfuls, but you get my drift.

I might actually be forced to buy new pants…
