It is so frustrating when you see yourself working hard, but the scale deciding to take some time to relax ... And not drop any lower. The past month has been hard, but I hit my goal for France (less than two weeks until I leave!) and after a .2 gain last week I managed to drop 5.6 lbs. this week!
Although 666 catches a bad rep, I am 66.6 lbs. down in six months. :) I couldn't be happier!!!
Well, I will be once I hit my next goal of 72 lbs., which will be my 20 percent goal. After that is my 25 percent and 100 lbs. lost! I'm hoping that I will hit the 100 lbs. mark some time near my birthday. September 25 ... Looking at it, I will probably be closer to 90, but that's okay. Every day is a step in the right direction.
I'm also finding that even as my weight loss slows down, my desire to live and experience things grows. I know I talked about when I climbed Old Rag a few weeks back, but I can promise you that had I been 360, that climb would have never happened. I would not have felt like I could drag all of that up the mile and a half of solid boulder I needed to climb to reach the summit. I wouldn't be as willing to try new exercise classes. I wouldn't be as comfortable with ME if I hadn't taken this step six months ago.
It is amazing how much life can change in that short amount of time.
I can't wait to see how I am at NYE this year. Hopefully nearly 120 lbs. down, and closer to one-derland than I ever imagined being possible.
Despite how things could be ... I am so, so happy. This is easily one of the hardest things I've ever done, but one of the most satisfying.
Biggest Loser 5K in two days ... Here's to hoping being 15 lbs. lighter will help!!!
