I just realized that I haven't blogged in almost a month! I guess I had reason enough - I started out this month with a really bad case of strep throat. That was followed by a week of a stomach bug. Last week was the first week that I really felt "normal" again. I was so worried because during my illnesses I lost 5 pounds because I was averaging 300-500 calories a day. I didn't know what would happen once I started eating at my normal level again (1200-1500) - well, I've managed to keep off the weight and I lost an additional 1.5 pounds to boot! I guess that's the one "good" thing about being sick. So now I'm down under 170 pounds - something I haven't been in about 3 1/2 years! I'm so proud of myself!!! My mini goal was to get to 168 by the end of April and I'm in good shape to meet that goal!
I'm hoping to keep building on my momentum and my next mini goal will be to hit 164 by the end of May!
I need to thank everyone who has motivated me (all of you!) and Spark, my family and a little, tiny thing that I like to call my will-power. Although I hope that last thing becomes a bit larger and more demanding!
