I Have Given Myself The Best Birthday Present I Could.

Sunday, August 05, 2012

I’ve given myself the best birthday present I know of… the gift of a healthier lifestyle. Am I at my goal weight? Nope, and got a ways to go… but in the past year I’ve definitely made some progress:

Weight lost: 34.8 pounds
Inches lost (since Oct 6 2011… first time I bothered to take measurements):
Upper Arm: 2”
Waist: 6.25”
Hips: 6.5”
Thigh: 3.25”

Would I say I’m proud of how much I’ve lost this past year? Yes. I was about to put the famous “but”…. however CoachKrystie’s voice popped into my head telling me to stop beating myself up. Considering I took a SP “vacation” from July until just before January… I am proud of myself and my progress, but most of all I’m proud of myself for coming back and not just throwing in the towel. I have given myself more energy, smaller clothes, better physical condition and the knowledge that I will reach my goal weight. When that will exactly happen, I’m not sure… but I am now 100% confident that it will happen.
