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!
