I tend to be a go-against-the-crowd sort of person. If everyone else is doing it, I’m probably not doing it. If everyone else isn’t doing it, I maybe am. So I’m not going to write about how I’ve spent time reflecting on the last year. The past is almost always with me. I obsess about it enough, so I don’t need a holiday to force me to do it even more. And I certainly am not going to make New Year’s resolutions. I do, however, have a goal. You know, if you’ve read some of my previous posts, how huge that is! I’m not a goal setter. Awhile back, I wrote of my weight-loss goal and how I finally achieved it. I maintained that weight for a few months. Then Thanksgiving and Christmas came along and I ate way too much, gained a few pounds back. So my new goal is to not only get back to that original target weight, but to also lose five more pounds beyond it by my birthday the end of March. Right now, that would be about eight pounds in a little less than three months. Totally doable right? I’m hoping that posting my goal on here will be a big motivator. I really do want to be able to come back, on my birthday, and say that I achieved my goal. Here’s hoping!
