I've been reading through the archives this afternoon because I have been so discouraged this week. I've been finding lots of little gems that have heartened me, but this one was fun. Speculation about where I would be six months from now, which was about two months ago, so I am a little late. Here's what I wrote:
Well, today's the day: 180 days, six months, whatever you want to call it. That's how long I've been logging my meals and MyFitnessPal and it was then that I really started this thing for real.
I just couldn't wait for this day to come! And now it has and all I can do is really think about the next six months and where I might find myself then. It's exciting! While I don't see this as a race or anything, I want to speculate a little bit on what I might be doing on May 12, 2105 or thereabouts.
• I will be a month away from turning 45.
Yep. I definitely turned 45.
• I would love to see another 50 pounds off my body, which would bring me down to 268. The last time I weighed that was over ten years ago!
Not quite there, even now into July. But it's OK. I will get there.
• I expect to be able to totally run a 5K distance, maybe under an 18:00 pace? (Wow, to think it!)
Yup! Totally under an 18:00 pace, too.
• I can't even speculate what else. Wow. Another 50 pounds.
I can do it. Whether I do it in six months or not, I can do it.
I WILL DO IT.
(and then on to the next 50 after that.)
Pretty soon I should do another set of predictions for the next six months, yes? This is a good reminder of how far I have come in such a short time.
Thanks, May 2015 self!
