He clarified the goal

This will be a short post. I'm doing this on my Kindle in the car and it's painfully slow ... just like seeing results when you're dieting ... but I'll get there. I had my physical this morning and the doc did say he was very pleased with my weight loss and congratulated me and said he knew it wasn't an easy thing to accomplish. He asked how much I weighed when I got married. I said there was no way I could get to that weight. I think I was at 128. He said 150 to 155 would be good. I guess I now have a goal. Before seeinng him I thought I would continue losing until I really struggled and I would take that as my cue that was my ideal weight. Maybe that'd be too easy or turn out to be a copout. So whatever .. it's still one pound at a time.

Isn't that the best feeling, when the doctor is pleased? It beats getting lectured! LOL Congratulations on having a goal too. That is important. We have to know where we're going, if we ever want to get there.

Enjoy your day!

Wow! Good for you! You have a very achievable goal and you can do it! I'm very proud of you! Hang in there during all the traveling I know how hard that can be! Just remember we are not perfect! Not one day at a time one meal at a time!
Happy travels!

Yes, one pound at a time. I know my goal should be a lot less but I also know I want a weight I can maintain and feel good at. In all my years, the only time I had a doctor 'fuss' about my weight besides pregnancy was when I was 35ish and weighed 130 which IMO is fine for my 5'4 height. I was offended!

Mensa, I am sure I commented yesterday- oh well! You have done such a good job losing weight and believe me, I know it's a lot harder when you're over 50! The metabolism slowwssss down. Have a fun weekend.
