Challenges and Goals

I am coming to realize that I do the best in life when I am challenged, and when I set goals and have a plan.
I started a challenge with my support group at the dr office that will take us through the holidays ending on Jan 6th. It is a personal set goal weight loss challenge. Since everyone in our group is at a different place in their journey some prebanded, just banded, getting to their goal, a few pounds to go, ect. I came up with the idea that each person have their own goal, but it has to be approved or set by Jody our PA at the Dr. office. We will have two winners first the person that surpassed their goal the most and the second all the people that met their goal will put their name in a hat and one name will be drawn. Our Dr. office is providing visa gift cards for the winners. I think this is gonna be a great way to get through the holidays...
As far as personal goals go. I have 57 pounds to go until I reach my goal given to be by my doc. I have always had a goal date of Feb 11th cause that will be 18 months after being banded, but main goal date is March 18th which is exactly 6 months from day, and I will be 30!!! Such a big day, so I think this is my goal for myself. I got this!!! I appreciate all the support from my loving family and friends. I would not be this far if I was doing this journey on my own. I love and appreciate each one of you. I can never say thank you enough for believing in me.
Today is our big cookout for my dad. I can not wait to get home and be with my family and closest friends. Then its Chicago in less than a week. Can not wait!!! See you bloggers real soon!
much love xoxo
