Hi my SparkPeople! I am now the mother of a 15 yr old and an 18 yr old. WOW! My youngest daughter turned 15 yesterday. Funny thing is that I still look at my girls and sometimes see them as the little girls they were when they were 5 & 8 or 3 & 6 or 7 & 10. Time doesn't wait. I'm so blessed to be their mother.
Well, I was so excited to weigh in at 186 almost 2 weeks ago...short-lived. I'm back at 188 BUT my inches are steadily decreasing all over my body. Fortunately, I have been diligent in keeping track of my measurements so I have more than one way of assessing my progress. I've decided that I won't beat myself up about gaining back 2 pounds. Instead I've decided to be honest with myself about what I can improve upon and work on those areas. Also, I'll congratulate myself on the things that I have been doing well with. So, I've got 30 pounds to lose to get to my goal weight...I'm still down 42 pounds. I can still do this and I WILL!!!
