My journey continues...

It's time to get the weighloss train moving again. I've been fortunate to maintain (within a few pounds) the weight loss I had already achieved but now I feel I'm ready to drop a few more. I'll be travelling for one of my jobs but I know I'm going to get in some exercise even if it's only a mile or so walk each day I'm away. I'm hoping the weather isn't too bad so I can do some adventuring while back in Boston.

Rome wasn't built in a day... and neither were my hips!

My Goals:
I'm losing weight to be healthier and working on being fitter.

Maintained weight loss!

New pair of denim and black jeans for work: size 12 - 3/19/2014

I'm setting mini goals as I go along to keep myself motivated.

Scale under 200 lbs: 9/21/2012
Fit into smaller jeans: size 16 - 9/24/2012
Scale under 190 lbs: 10/26/2012
Fit into smaller jeans: size 14 - 11/05/2012
Scale under 180 lbs: 12/07/2012
Fit into smaller jeans: size 12 - 11/25/2012
New dress pants for work: size 10 - 10/2013

Time to figure out what my new goal weight will be...

I was able to maintain (within a few pounds) my prior weight loss even with multiple Thanksgiving dinners (Southern cooks are fantastic!) and Christmas.

My Program:
I'm tracking my food and exercise. I thought 8 glasses of water sounded like a lot but once I realized I have a bottle I can fill and empty (drink) 4 times to be over the 8 glasses the water isn't so hard to get in, plus I get the extra bits of exercise going to the fridge to fill and retrieve my water bottle!

Personal Information:
In the south, eveyone is part of your extended family.

I've had multiple Thanksgiving dinners and the food was incredible! I was lucky to have learned alot about myself and how to eat so I could have everything I wanted (in moderation) and try some new foods without the guilt.

Other Information:
I'm a cat person and currently cater to the needs of 3 cats: Midnight, Tiger and Sunshine. Their mom, Misty, passed away while I was out of the house. I came home to find her in one of her favorite sunny sleeping spots. I know that she along with Mittens, Punkin, Trouble, Sugar and Baby are all playing at the Rainbow Bridge and some day we'll all be together again.

I love your cat photo! Yes, the new jeans size is an amazing feeling! I started at size 18 and now fit in a 14...my ultimate goal is 10 again.

Thanks for your support on my blog!
