I've had a lot of changes in my life since my last blog post. I've moved from Seattle, WA to Savannah, GA, and I'm engaged to be married! What hasn't changed is I'm still 10 pounds from my goal weight.
I've come to realize it really is a mental thing. My last physical, my doctor says I am healthy, and healthier than the average American. I've successfully lost 30 pounds, but I can't seem to lose the 'last 10 pounds'. Am I happy enough with 130? Is that good enough?
Perhaps so. However, since moving to the south, I have a new motivation. There are many, many more bikini days than there were in Seattle! We've been going to the beach almost every weekend, so I am finding the desire to tone and tighten up a little more strongly. On the other hand, the temptation to eat poorly is much, much more prevalent in the south. Delicious BBQ is at every turn, and not much in the way of sushi, one of my favorite healthy foods. Farmers market with fresh veggies and fruit is nearly non existant, however, I am finding it easy to grow tomatoes and peppers on my balcony due to the strong days of sun.
I've been holding off on trying on wedding dresses, and I've got to get on that.
So, here's to another fresh start!
