A calm day...

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I just had a nice, calm, fairly normal day. Walked the dog three times for a total of 11.8 miles. We have walked a lot this week. I am going to add all my steps for the week on Saturday and see what the total is, it should be pretty high. Cooper has walked a bunch of those miles with me this week. I forget to mention yesterday that Cooper has lost almost a pound since July. He definitely won;t get obese if we keep up the pace we have been going.

Went out to dinner with my neighbor tonight. My treat, as my Christmas present to her. I got the fish fry, but I got it with a baked potato that I dressed with .5 Tbsp of sour cream, and didn't eat the coleslaw that came with it. Started with a green salad, and downed 4 glasses of water with the meal. After dinner we ran a couple of quick errands. We came home and I took Cooper out for his last walk of the day.

I also got some cleaning done today, including going through my entire closet one more time and getting rid of the clothes that are too big now. I also got out that one pair of pants that I saved from when I was at my heaviest. I think I could fit in one leg of those pants now! I'll have to get some new pictures for my "after" photos. I am not quite at "after" yet, but there is definitely a significant difference from where I was in 2011 to where I am heading into 2013!

    I should have saved one pair just to see how much I have changed.

    Congratulations on the healthy weight loss! I am very proud of you and am loving being able to type this message and tell you GREAT JOB!

Next year will be here fast with new challenges! And I used to hang on to a pair of size 26 jeans to remind myself where I had come from. i was in a size 12 most days then. Now I need to do this all over again, and even though I wasn't back into a 26, I have worn sloppy clothes like pajamas and sweatpants every day... so i probable was a 26 and just never got dressed to really find out.
