BUCK UP!

You see this?
This is my goal.  My family is going on vacation in December and this is the weight I want to lose before then.  Twelve pounds…that’s it.  For those of you wondering if this is a realistic goal, here are my stats:
Height: 5’4"
Weight: 139
BMI: 24
**total inches [bust, waist, hips, & thigh] added later**
Now, according to the BMI calculator that I used, 24 is considered "normal" but it would be better if I was around 21-22.  So I would have to say that I don’t think getting down to 127 is an unrealistic goal and it is on the high end of what is normal for my height and frame.  Now, I haven’t taken my measurements which is a much better indicator of fitness than weight (in my opinion) so I’ll do that tomorrow.  I don’t want to be rail thin, I just want to get back into shape and so starting tomorrow I’m going to try walking or jogging every day  Don’t worry, this is still a knitting blog, but I’m hoping that I will have the occasional post dedicated to my weight loss goal
Have a great day!

    Where are you going on vacation?  Hawaii?  Good luck with your exercise program – you should get a dog – they are always up for a walk and are smiling about it to boot!  You\’ll just have to put KT in the stroller and just go – I bet she will enjoy it!  My problem is controlling what I eat…YOU CAN DO IT!!
