I only lost 1 pound this week. On the weekends, I stopped taking the oil and it was the Fourth of July weekend. I think I need to stick to the oil on the weekends.
I created a spread sheet to keep track of my weight lost and goal and this is what it currently looks like. My target weight is based on my starting weight - 2lbs/week with adjustments for vacation, holidays (thanksgiving, xmas), but my two big goals are 220 by mid January and 170 by July 2009.220 represents just being overweight and 170 represents normal weight.
I'm under my target weight right now and if I'm over ten pounds away from my target, I'll adjust it, but the 6 lbs buffer gives me some room to fail a bit.
