Hello to all my blogger friends from your long lost friend~ME!
Its hard to believe that a new year is here and I haven't blogged since AUGUST!!! I know, I know, shame on me!! My apologies for my absence. I guess life just got in the way and I just didn't feel like I had anything too terribly important to contribute.I have decided to start blogging again and I hope that you will join me in my weight loss journey.
The holidays came and went and now I am left picking up from where I left off....and I am still about 9# heavier than my lowest weight. (sigh) Oh well, its a new year, and I am done beating myself up. I am still doing Weight Watchers and plan to continue doing it until I reach my goal weight of 150. As of this morning, I weighed in at 182.6. A loss of 3# this week. Yay!! My lowest weight was last May when I hit 173.8 so I guess that I have 8.8# left to go to get back down to where I was and that doesn't seem too far away....less than 10#.
2012 was a year of lessons learned. I didn't really do anything earth shattering re:my weight loss. I pretty much maintained & gained & lost the same 10#. I have vowed to myself that it will not be a repeat performance in 2013. I am about 33# to goal and I plan on finishing the race. THIS YEAR...NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!
I have been dealing with a very bad cold and still stuck to my plan and had a good week overall. I am trying to eat more protein and no refined "crappy" carbs. They seem to be the "doom" of me. I must confess, I did have some things today that I shouldn't have and I really don't know why I ate them. Perhaps out of pity because of my cold?? I really don't know. But I am over it and moving forward.
So my short term goal is to be back down to 173.8 by the end of this month and I am hoping to reach my ultimate goal of 150 by the beginning of summer.I think it is do able. This is about 5# a month. I need to stay focused and to remember what I am working for. There is NOTHING out there that tastes better than thin feels and I want to know what that feels like THIS YEAR!!!
I took an updated photo of myself at the end of the year but for some reason it wont upload. Is there something they are doing different now???
Have a Happy Saturday and Happy 2013!!!!
