Keep on Keeping On

Saturday, February 09, 2013

So the blizzard is done. It really wasn't as bad where I live as initially expected. We got about a foot of snow, but the heavy winds and really heavy snow tapered off earlier in the night. So thankfully we didn't lose power! But I have a bit of shoveling ahead of me now.

Also, I have my laptop back! Got it back on Thursday and it is so nice having reliable internet access again. Now I can go back to using SparkPeople more regularly and when I want to instead of waiting to barrow somebody else's computer or waiting to go into work and hoping I can get on a computer there.

And I'm very happy to announce that I am finally seeing that scale moving again. After my post about losing 21 pounds, I got a bit off track. Part of that was due to not having access to SparkPeople as much as I need. But the other part is that whenever I seem to hit a milestone in my weight loss, I get a bit lazy with it. I figure that I'm doing pretty well on my own, and that I've been doing so well that I can eat a bit more, and that I don't really need to exercise as much as I had been. I did this when I lost 10 pounds as well. I actually put on a pound over the last two weeks and was having a really hard time getting just that to come back off. However, a few days ago I told myself that I can't hold myself back, that I have to keep on keeping on. I've been making a push and I was able to lose that pound I gained back and another pound on top of that, so I'm down 22 pounds! I had a goal to lose 25 pounds for Valentine's day. Don't know if that's going to happen, but that's ok because I'll be pretty darn close if it doesn't. I just gotta keep on keeping on!

    We got 22 inches from Nemo. Thank god for garages, otherwise I'd be shoveling too, although it's awesome exercise. Congrats on being down 22 lbs and have a great Valentine's Day!

    Snow shovelling is really good exercise...and obviously a necessity. Put that snow to good have a great day!

    Congratulations for getting back on track! We got about 8 inches of snow in NJ. It sure is pretty!
