I don’t want to make this blog a weight loss blog. However, if this blog is related to my life experiences, I can’t avoid talking about my weight loss process here. After lots of thinking, here I go.

I want/need to lose 80+ pounds. I joined Weight Watchers (WW) again on March 17th 2015. I lost 9.4 lb. in 4 weeks. Then, I stopped losing weight for a few weeks. Then, I gained 4 lb. back. Now I am 5.4 lb. lighter.

The other day I thought it could be interesting to lose 39 pounds before my 39 birthday. I made the math and realized that I had more than 39 weeks until my next birthday. So, I decided to create a project to:

lose 39 pounds in 39 weeks before my 39th birthday.

It sounded fun and doable. However, I was unsure if I was ready for it.

Last week WW meeting’s topic was “Keep your ‘why’ close by” with the suggestion of creating a vision board to help bring motivation to life. During the meeting, I thought: that is it, my 39 pounds project!

I didn’t want to cut and paste random images to illustrate my vision board, so I decided to find an image of myself.

In September 28th 2012, my weight was 206.2 lb., that is 40.4 lb. lighter than today (just a little bit more than those 39 pounds eh!).

I searched my 2012 September photos, and guess what I found:

Yes, I found a picture of myself dated as September 26th 2012: two days before I weighed 206.2 lb. This is perfect because I know how I want to look like in 39 weeks.

.

I will do my best for this project succeed, and if it happens, my weight will be 207.6 lb. at the end of March 2016 (just 1.4 lb. more I was in the picture above).

To be even better, I still have that jeans and that blue Tommy shirt. So, it will be amazing to celebrate my 39th birthday wearing those clothes again!

The metal rings? Oh, yeah! I have 39 metal rings and I will attach them weekly according to my weight loss and make a chain.

PROJECT DATES:

START DATE: June 24th 2015 (246.6 lb.)

END DATE: March 22nd 2016 (207.6 lb.)

>> I hurt my back last Wednesday, so I am unable to do my evening walks since then. If I don’t lose 1 pound this week, or if I gain any pound due to medication’s effect, I will set my starting date as June 30th 2015 and ending date as March 29th 2016 (the exact day I will celebrate my 39th anniversary).
