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!
