You may or may not have noticed my disappearance from Sparkpeople a couple of months ago. When I moved to Colorado in May, I kind of fell off the bandwagon. I continued working out for a while, and continued eating slightly healthier, but then it gradually went to not working out and not eating all that healthy. I had lost a few lbs after I moved here, but then I gained a couple of those back, so I've gradually stopped weighing myself as well. It's been well over a month since I've weighed myself. For whatever reason, I decided to get back on the scale this morning, and I was really expecting a huge disappointment (like, potentially a 10 lbs gain). Instead, what I found was a 10 lbs LOSS...!!!!!! I have absolutely no idea how that happened, except that since school has started I haven't been snacking as much (especially not at work). I haven't been working out, though, or counting calories, etc. I'm completely shocked. And definitely happy. I do wish I could say that I've really worked for this loss, though. But, I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth, that's for sure! And I'm extra excited about this, because I feel like it's given me more motivation to actually get back into spark and working out and watching what I'm eating. I'm excited about getting healthy again, I'm excited to make my 36-lbs loss (thus far) a 40-lbs loss, and then eventually a 60-lbs loss! Once again I feel like I can actually do this. That I'm not someone who gets to the 20-30 lbs loss range and then loses momentum completely and ends up gaining it all back, and then some. Earlier in this journey I remember writing a post after I got under 200, saying that I would never again be there. After this summer I was worried that I would be again, and soon. But now I've realized that I'm NOT going back there. I'm not going to stand for that. I am going to take care of this body I've been blessed with. This beautiful, strong, healthier body.
