Ok I have been MIA for like a month but I'm back and motivated again. I ended up winning my weight loss challenge at work!! Yay!! 12.89% in 12 weeks! I was so proud to accept that award in front of over 200 coworkers! My dress for the wedding had to b taken in and was still too big, first time I've ever had that issue but I wasn't complaining at all!
The cruise was amazing and I ate all kinds of things I shouldn't have. I gained a few pounds during the trip but I didn't beat myself up about it. I knew it would happen and it wasn't as bad as I thought.
Now I've got to refocus! It's been hard to get back in the healthy swing since I got off the ship. Life had been crazy busy and money is in short supply. I've also started seeing someone who loves all the food I'm trying to avoid. *sigh* it's ok though. We talked about it and I've made the commitment to change my lifestyle so I'm sticking with it. Hopefully he will b as supportive as he says he will because if we keep eating fast food and potatoes with every meal that 80lbs will quickly find me!!
I'm finally back in one-derland after 5 long years and I intend to stay here come hell or high water!! I've already gotten my lunches and dinners ready for this week and my resistance bands are sitting in the living room waiting for me as I type. I know the next few weeks will b a little tough but I can do it. Nothing tastes as good as getting healthy feels. I love that all my clothes are too big and I do NOT want them to fit better after the holidays! I'll have a bite of my favs but long gone are the days of eating a plate full of carbs, then seconds and finally 2 slices of pumpkin pie! This is the new me and we all like her lol so I'm keeping her and we will just have to throw that old chubby girl inside me a bite every now and again :-)
