That's exactly 10% of my body weight gone. Yes... that's another of my goals! Granted, it is only .8 of a pound lower than the last goal I achieved, so some of these are super close, lol. But hey, it is a milestone for sure! 10% of my whole body - gone! I love it.

Also, I'm approaching 1/3 of my main goal. From 208, I want to get down to the low 140's... roughly 65 pounds. At that weight, I'll be at my adult optimum plus ten. I intend to re-evaluate at that point, as that might be good enough, or I might want to lose those vanity pounds as well. I'm considering getting to the low 140's as imperative for my health - not only for general health, especially as I get older, but specifically for my poor knees and feet. Anyway, 132 would be awesome, as I used to love the way I looked at that weight. But I don't really care about that right now. We'll call them vanity pounds and address them or not, later. Back to the point... 65 pounds as the main goal, means that I'm pretty close to having lost 1/3 of that. Cool!

It still boggles my mind that I'm not even back to my pre-pandemic weight from a year ago. In March of 2020, I started power-eating (as I'm sure many people did). It was obscene to gain over 25 pounds in just a short handful of months. With serious effort, I stopped gaining in August, but then took a long time to be able to get some results. I feel like I'm in a pretty good place now... slow, but good.

Today is Easter. I had a good silks class, and then came home and promptly devoured a bunch of crackers with hummus and cheese. Ugh. I wish I could have thought in advance to dole out a set amount and then stop. That is a hurdle I need to tackle another day. I think I gave myself permission to indulge, since it is a holiday... and since it is the weekend, and since I worked out hard. The justifications need to be addressed also, hahaha. I'm a master at them.

I'm overweight. I'm not obese. I've lost 10% of my body weight. There was something I read about how losing 10% of one's body weight can be really beneficial to overall health. Well, I've done that! Kudos to me! Also, look what I can do:
