I haven't wrote a blog in 8 weeks! Yikes! I've been a bit busy so I really haven't had the time... but that's beside the point of this blog so here goes.......
I have made it to my 2nd goal of another 10 pounds gone FOREVER!! 20 pounds altogether!! WOOT WOOT!! Even though Spark People is still saying 19, I'm going to go ahead and take it!! lol
It has taken me 7 months to lose those 20 pounds but you know what I don't care! I had some ups and downs along the way and in August I really thought about just giving up but then I went back and reread the letter that I wrote to my husband about all the reasons why I needed and wanted to lose weight and also reread my goals, that's all I needed to get back on track!
I'm sure that if I eat better and worked out more than I do, I would lose even more but I'm happy with taking things slowly and everyday I'm getting better and better at this eating and working out thing!
So now comes the REALLY exciting part....... I AM .9 lbs away from being in "ONEDERLAND"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm hoping to get there by next week and if not, hopefully in the near future!! I have been in onederland several times in my life and never have I ever really appreciated it. I am now so excited and appreciative of the fact that I will be there soon and that I got to that point from hard work and determination, and not diet pills or crazy crash diets like I have done before!
The last time I was in the 100's I was taking phentermine and of course I lost a crazy amount of weight in a short period of time but as soon as I stopped taking them I gained all the weight back plus 10 pounds so I have promised myself that I will NEVER ever lose weight the easy way again!!
Now on to my NSV.... My family just recently went through all of our summer clothes and brought our winter clothes out of storage (no this is not my NSV lol). While going through my clothes I realized that I had several pairs of dress pants that no longer fit!! So I shipped them off to my sisters house so she can wear them until she can't fit into them any longer (she's losing weight as well). Then I started trying on winter clothes that I could NOT wear last year and guess what.... some of them fit!! There were a few items that were a little snug but I WILL fit into them comfortably by the end of winter! That is my new goal along with losing the next 10 pounds!!
On a side note.... I have said in one of my previous blogs that I wanted nothing more than to be a stay at home mom/wife and that dream is quite possibly going to happen at the beginning of this year!! I couldn't be happier!! I'm trying not to get my hopes up but it's hard not to think that everything you've ever wanted was falling into place!
Whew sorry for the rambling blog! I hope everyone has a fabulous week and keep sparking! I know I will!
