I was seriously on the fence about stating a weight goal for this challenge. I know that I work much, much better when I have a goal in mind, but I also know that I need to be realistic and not set myself up for failure. It was a mighty battle in my head. I wrote the last post in bed struggling with the question. After careful consideration and thought, I decided to go for it, and I plan on going for 25. Let me explain my logic.
When I did this challenge last year, I did it for 30 days and lost 10 lbs of fat in that time. That was really good and I did a lower level. Last challenge a number of women at my gym lost 25 lbs in 45 days. So it is completely doable. I'm doing it at a higher level so that should make it more dramatic. The real goal of this challenge is to get back on track and get my eating under control. When it's under control I have no problem eating paleo all the time. I just need to get back on track. Also, by having a weight goal, I will be that much more conscious about sticking to it.
So 25 lbs it is. I started the challenge at 194. If I can lose the 25 lbs that will put me at 169. That is a number I really, really want to see. And I'm going to bust my ass for it. Literally.
