Yesterday was a really great day. Not only did I get to spend it with all of my family and close friends, but I was able to also finally loose another pound to bring my weight loss to 45 pounds!
A year ago, I was at my heaviest weight. I was living in a place were I could not have been more unhappier. Everything about my life was unhealthy. I realized that something needed to change, and I started a job search that ultimately led me back home; something that I am the most thankful for.
Last year on Thanksgiving, I ate and ate and ate and ate some more. I didn't give any thought to the number of calories I was eating or what I was putting in my body. I just went for it.
This year, I got up early. Weighed in because my weigh in days are Thursdays, and to my surprise saw that I met my goal of trying to lose 45 pounds by Thanksgiving Day! Even though I could have taken yesterday as a rest say, I still went to the gym for an hour. I drank so much water I must have hit the bathroom at least a dozen times. But I still enjoyed all my favorite holiday foods, just in smaller portions. At the end of the night I was so proud of how I did.
This was the best Thanksgiving I think I've had in a long time. I'm proud of all the accomplishments I've made so far, and I only see myself continuing from here. The road has not been easy (especially these last ten pounds…), but it's a road I'm on for the long haul. My newest goal is to lose 5 more pounds by New Year's. For once I want to ring in the New Year, not making another resolution to lost a huge amount of weight. And I know that this is going to happen.
I hope everyone had as wonderful day as I did and that you are proud of everything that you have done so far to get you where you are. Happy day after Thanksgiving to everyone!
