Another great week, filled with everyone...and I mean EVERYONE...noticing once again that I look and feel fabulous! I ran into a few people who had not seen me in several months, and they really did not recognize me. I also performed "feats of derring do" around the office by leaping up on counters and such.
This morning I weighed in at 169.6 lb, down 1.4 lb since last week and 47.4 lb since the start of the year.
It sure is nice to see the 160s!
I have just 30 pounds to lose before I reach my goal weight. I cannot express in words how good THAT feels. My goal weight has always seemed so far away. I am even thinking about revising my goal weight down, but I don't think I'll officially do that for a bit. I need to see how things shape up (so to speak) as I get closer.

As many of you know, I've been on a real downward spiral for months. Since January, in fact. Every week, I seem to sink lower and lower.
Well, this week, I hit a new low: I am OVERWEIGHT.
I seriously never expected this.
I am finally out of the OBESE category on the BMI!
This morning I weighed in at 171 lb, down 2.8 lb from last week, and down 46 lb for the year.
I always figured the magic number was 169, but if I enter my stats in metric (lovely lovely metric!), then I get a BMI of 29.9 this week.
Turns out I am not actually 5'3", but 161 cm. Big difference!
Anyhow, thank you all for your continued support. I don't say it often enough, but seeing all those "likes" and reading about your lives and struggles and victories is ALWAYS inspirational.
Spark On, my friends!

This is just to say that I am having a really good week.
Got in the best workout of the year last night, hence the "happy sweat" above.
Made a breakthrough of sorts re: recent poor eating habits.
Am actually no longer obese...but ssshhhhh...gonna make that announcement official at my weigh-in later this week.
Went online shopping today for a truckload of new fall clothes.

Yesterday was the literacy program BBQ, and I ate a lot of salty foods. Woke up today all puffy, so I knew it was not going to be a good weigh-in.
But that's okay. In a couple of days, all the salt bloat will be gone!
See?? That's me just rolling with it.
(It's actually a very complicated thing, this "rolling with it", but that would take a big long blog on its own.)
I weighed in at 173.8 lb, down 0.2 lb from last week and down 43.2 lb from the start of the year.
Also, my 3-Day Novel went well. I don't think I wrote a winner. Or one worthy of the shortlist. But then, at this point I never do. I'm usually just glad to have made it through the weekend alive.
I did very well with my eating and exercising during the contest. Much better than expected. No junk food, except the diet root beer, which I definitely had too much of. And I exercised every day, though I didn't do any strength training, just cardio.
The shortlist and winners will not be announced until February or maybe March, so I need to find a new creative project in the meantime.

I'll make this short since I'm supposed to be 3-Day Noveling...
I lost one inch off both my waist and hips/lower belly this month and half an inch off my thighs. Still no movement on the upper arms. But my arms look good, I think.
Inches lost for the year-to-date:
Waist: 6 inches lost
Hips: 8 inches lost
Upper Arm: 1 inch lost
Thigh: 2.5 inches lost
Okay, I really gotta get back to the book. Just 15.5 hours to go before the deadline!
