Tomorrow my dentist says I can start working out again WOOOOT! I had dental surgery last weekend and was instructed to do no heavy activity for 7-10 days. Tomorrow marks seven days and I am feeling great so I can get back with the plan! there were a few days there when I was away from home and unable to track my food. One of those days ended uo being pretty much untrackable, but I did control the urge to binge and since I got home I have been as on track as I can.
My weight is sitting at ALMOST 63 pounds gone right now., of which about 50 is since November. I know I can't realistically keep up that pace forever and things seem to have slowed to a more normal/healthy rate of loss. In February I lost 7.8 pounds which is almost 2lb a week, and this month is looking to be roughly the same. I'll take it!
I would really, REALLY like to be in onederland by my anniversary cruise at the end of April. I have almost 11lb to go to get there by then, I really think it's achievable but who knows. If I can be at my goal (174) by July I will be THRILLED, and if I get to the 150-160 range by my anniversary in August I will poop my pants. no seriously.
For the first time since having my kids, I truly believe I am shedding my fat suit. There have been times over the past seven years that I tried to accept my weight and be ok with my body, but something happened this year...I had to have a biopsy on my thyroid and you know what? I want, I NEED to be alive for my kids. I am DONE with living not my quite best life.
