"Weight loss isn't linear," is a common refrain of those on a weight loss journey. I sing it, too. Today, I am 12.1lbs lighter from 2.5 months ago. I am headed in the right direction, through a rolling hill than a gentle downslope.

At the outset, I established goals - more as a tool than a conviction. According to the WHO, at 4'11 and ~165 lbs, I was obese. The label stings. More than that, I forced into hiding. Photos are painful to see. Clothes became a necessity and no longer a tool for vanity. Above all else, it was painful to lose the power I used to have as a smaller person to have people take interest in me as a person.

I needed to lose a big chunk of weight is the bottom line and a way of dealing with the enormity of my hurdle - so I don't end up in a self-defeatist position each day. I figured if I eat less and move more, I am bound to lose weight. But I am interested in speed - 2.5lbs a week they say is realistic.

Since I set my goals and committed to weight loss seriously, I have lost 7.6lbs in 4 weeks. That is 1.9 lbs a week - not bad according to weight loss circles.

The past four weeks have not been as disciplined. I did drink alcohol and excessively so in some days. Some days I ate way too much. And many days I didn't put in as much exercise. So the 2.5 lb/week weight loss goal is attainable with a little bit more discipline and effort.

Today, I celebrate being the smallest I have been in 6 months, at least. Can't weight to break out of 150s and into the WHO overweight range.
