What Is My Ideal Weight?

I just spent a lot of time looking at what I have weighed each week over the last seven years. (Chart to follow.) I can slice and dice it a million different ways. And, each time I do it, my “ideal weight” comes out to 172 pounds. And, that’s my goal for 2014.

Basically, I need to drop about 15 pounds. That would get me back to where I was around March-April of 2013. It’s pretty clear what happened to me since that time. That’s just about the start of when I began working from home. Being so close to the kitchen, I was snacking too much during the day and that gave me about 5 pounds. Then, in August, we went to Disney. And, I probably put on another 5 pounds eating poorly during that vacation. Lastly, in December, I went nuts pigging out on Xmas cookies. That was another 5 pounds or so. Add it all up and you get 15 pounds in 8 months.

That said, I need to be reasonable here with myself. If it took 8 months to gain 15 pounds, then, I really can’t expect to get it all off in two month or less. But, I don’t want this to take forever either. Four months would be 3-4 pounds per month. That’s more than fair. And, by the end of April 2014, if not sooner, I want to be back to 172 pounds.

One day at a time.
