emoticon IDKY so don't ask. lol Feeling silly I guess emoticon

This year is truly starting out wonderfully! Yay 2013! emoticon I have finally, at long last, regained my motivational mojo. That once lost, it's super elusive kick in the pants has returned. I have missed it!

At the end of September I was 12 lbs away from my ultimate goal weight(at the time I have since lowered it) I was soooo close...And the POOF-mojo lost and I started gaining--slowly at first. By December I had gained about 6 lbs Christmas another 4. I had a total gain of 9.6 lbs!!! I mean I understood why--I had stopped eating properly. Exercise had become nearly non-existent. I was eating a ton of sugar. Damn you delicious sugar! emoticon

I kept fighting mentally to stay in it. I now had to re-lose nearly 10 pounds plus the 12 to get to that goal. Oh the things we do to ourselves..smh at me

Well as quickly as my Spark left, it has returned. I lowered my ultimate goal weight to 130 (totally healthy weight for me as I am a shorty lol) As of right now I have lost 5.2 lbs that I had regained. Yay me! My eating is spectacular and I am back to being a fitness Goddess emoticon

My sugar intake--well let's just say we are taking it day by day. lol I did have 2 consecutive days that I did NOT have what I would consider an excess of sweet nummies! Today will be 3 in a row if I can hack it. I am feeling positive about it though.

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous here in Michigan and I took full advantage of it by running 4 miles at the park. The park was packed with runners, walkers, bikers, and families. That made my heart happy!

At any rate, my head has officially been extracted from my anus emoticon

Have a wonderful day peeps! Much luv to you from me! We can do this thing. It is all uphill and it is lifelong. There is no end. Better choices- day by day! emoticon

    Good for you!!


I feel like my mojo's coming back too and for that I'm happy. I want to start seeing downward progress on that d*** scale again!

I agree with you: Sugar is a wily minx! I hate that b****.

I'm so glad your motivational mojo & spark has returned!!!

You've already lost 1/2 of the new gain.... so I believe you will have that other 5lb gone in no time.

You are making good choices & food & exercise...the results will absolutely follow.

Very happy for you!! emoticon Much love to you too ~ I KNOW you can do this. It is all about your choices.... make them good ones!
