Woo hoo, Mike, you can do it! Just wanted to throw some encouragement your way.
Btw... I think it's pretty awesome to have a 6-month goal and/or to think of where you want to be in that timeframe. Especially as someone who's losing weight, I just add up the (most likely) # of pounds I'll lose in 6 mos and get excited about it being 6 months from now. Not that I want my life to zip by, but... I think it puts things in perspective - like, all the small changes and the weeks I lose "only" 1# - the thought of how all that stuff will come together even more in 6mos is just awesome and very motivating.
Thanks for the welcome food for thought via sharing your goal - I know you'll do it!
