Well I decided to weigh in this morning after all despite still being sick. The scale says I have dropped 3 lbs. HOWEVER I am only logging in 1 for the week. I will reserve the other 2 and see what next week's weigh in shows. With as sick as I have been I feel my weight may fluctuate a pound or two in one direction or another as my body eventually heals and returns to normal. I'd much rather be conservative in my expectations at this stage than have to back track later. Either way I think I am safe to say I reached my New Year's goal of 30 lbs.
I have successfully removed each pound I regained earlier in 2012 and am now ready to venture forth. 105 lbs down and 95 lbs to go!
2012 proved to be a difficult year for me in more ways than one. Regaining so quickly some of the weight I dropped previously was a rude awakening for me. I was on such a high note at the beginning of 2012 and suddenly everything went south and spiralled rapidly out of control. Spending the next few months struggling to get back on track was not a great confidence booster either. Nevertheless by August I had regained my motivation and settled in to do what I needed to do. Some might say it was a completely wasted year, spent on regaining and losing previously lost pounds, but I don't choose to look at it that way. Instead I see it as a teachable moment. It taught me that giving up is not an option and that I do have what it takes to get the job done. And those are lessons I can't be taught enough. Each time I falter and get back up only serves to make me stronger not only in dealing with my weight but in everything I do. So here is to 2013, a brand New Year! The possiblilities are endless!!
