I reached my goal weight of 155! 95 pounds lost!

Friday, December 27, 2013

Happy last Friday of 2013!!!!!!!

Somehow I reached my goal weight of 155 pounds! For a long time, I didn't think I would make it! I haven't weighed 155 pounds since 2003. 10 years ago - WOW. I even ate some cookies over the Christmas season! I went to a cookie swap and ate a bunch of cookies! For my reward, I got my hair dyed four shades darker and got it cut. My boyfriend told me I deserved it. I feel great! Although I still have a lot to do to maintain, I feel awesome. It feels so good to finally reach my healthy weight goal! According to the BMI scale, I am now a NORMAL weight! No more overweight! Although the BMI scale is just one way to judge weight, I still feel better knowing I am in the Normal category! I am at 95 pounds lost. It would be great to lose more weight and be at 150 with 100 pounds lost, but I will take what I can get! I still have (what seems to be) a lot of skin and fat in my stomach and my upper thighs. I call those my "flub" areas. I am not happy with them, but I just keep telling myself that I have to deal with the consequence of gaining so much weight. I feel like I am still getting a bit smaller even though I have been around 155-160 for a long time now. Some of my clothes are a bit big now. I need to get some new work shirts because many are too baggy on me. I got a couple new pairs of pants that fit me better!

I have been very busy the past few weeks. I come on Spark to get my points and occasionally I am tracking my food and fitness. The colder weather is making me exercise less and less. I still have yoga, but it doesn't seem to be enough moving around for me to consider it exercise. At least it makes me feel good after class.

I want to run a couple of 5K races in the spring. One of my friends asked me to join her, so I want to do that. I wish she was closer so I had a running buddy, but that is ok. I will have to make myself run on my own!

Where is the time going? I had Thanksgiving, then I went on vacation to Tennessee a few weeks ago. Christmas is gone already! This is the last Friday of 2013! I can't believe it. 2013 has been a great year. It has been full of more Ups than downs. I am excited to see what 2014 brings. I actually don't many New Years Resolutions this year. I want to worry less - if possible! I have been doing my best to try and move past things quickly. I need to learn to deal with things as they come. Worrying just makes things worse! I will try my best and keep moving forward.

I put a couple pictures from my trip, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and some projects I did! I made some caramelized onions and roasted peppers a few weeks ago. I made a wreath and chocolate covered pretzels to give out as gifts! I have been happy and busy! Life is good. I still love Spark and this awesome community! Thank you to everyone who has supported me! I will do my best to be more active again. I don't have as many projects right now, so I have more free time. I am looking to buy a house though, so house hunting is now taking up a lot of time!

Best of luck to everyone for the New Year! I will probably be staying in that night with movies and games. That is enough for me. I am going to keep doing what I want to do. Everyone always has their own opinion, and I am going to try my best to think and do things my own way!

    Congrats!

I still work out normally in winter for the most part (unless it is really icy that is) but the heat gets to me in summer so you might like my summer strategy....YouTube videos. There are full length ones, everything from cardio boxing to ballet. I'm so addicted I do them year round really...

    This is very motivational to me to not /never give up and we Will obtain our goals even before we feel we might for that matter. I liked how you gave yourself a treat for losing so much, that was essesential and most cool. Glad also that you have a good support system around you. Good luck on all your future goals!! :D :D

I have really enjoyed reading about your journey. You are always upbeat and positive and it shows in your blogs, even when you had setbacks, you didn't let that deter you from your goal.

Keep on inspiring us!
