Hello my sparklers... I hope everyone is doing well. This holiday season I plan on checking out everyone's progress this year ;) I know I have done well with my weight loss and I am very pleased. I have not only lost weight but I have maintained it and I have established an active and healthier lifestyle food-wise. I definitely eat more fruits and vegetables and I love them! I also try to hit the gym 3 times per week but sometimes more and sometimes less depending on how busy I am in a certain week of vet school. Yesterday I weighed in at 133, but lets just say I am more stable at 135 right now because this last week we had finals and I was force feeding myself just a little food due to decreased appetitie. I haven't lost too much weight in the last few months but I am ok with that because I haven't GAINED. That was my biggest fear... I did not know if all of my hard work in the spring would go to waste once I was back in school. But I did it! And trust me if I can keep the weight off with my vet school sedentary lifestyle it IS possible to do. I really want to get a stable weight down to 130 over the next year as I continue to watch what I am eating. I also have realized that I may never be 100% satisfied with my body no matter what weight I am at. Today I plan on going shopping for new sweaters. This holiday season I can wear skin tight sweaters without hiding behind my big baggy ones like I always have in the past. So this is awesome and I can't wait. I also only have 2 pairs of jeans now that I fit into and now that the year is over and I have proven myself I am allowing myself to buy new ones :) Anyways my final class grades for my second semester of vet school come out today and I am very nervous because this was by far the most academically challenging semester I have ever embraced and I may have to repeat a class. Anyways I am realllyyyy nervous today (and so are TONS of my classmates) so we will see what happens this afternoon. This was supposed to be the hardest semester actually so I am just really glad its over.
