Last year at about this time I was sad because I had gone from being 33# down to about 18# down (or 191 to 173). I had gone from barely fitting into size 8's to being forced to wear size 12 because 10's were too uncomfortable. It was stupid and sad. And I ate.
This year, I'm looking back and seeing that I've been lacking motivation just about all year long. I've eaten all the wrong foods in all the wrong amounts, but with a few days a month of exercise and keeping my calorie counts from going overboard too often, I've managed to maintain my weight loss.
I haven't been tracking my food intake for at least 15 days. I haven't been drinking enough water for the last four or so days. And I'm starting to feel bummed about my behavior, so I'm looking at what I've accomplished this year.
This year, I can see a NSV of having maintained my weight loss for about a year within a five pound range (+/- 5 #), with only minimal effort. I also forcibly removed all size 12's from my closet and I think all my large clothes. (Except my swim suit and that I'll do next summer). I fit comfortably in my 10s, most days...and because of the thyroid medication and warmer weather, I am not freezing all winter long. Oh, and while not perfect, I like how my body looks when I wear my size 8/10 leggings...and I've gotten more comfortable wearing them when there are other people in the house...with a tunic top of course.
These are some nice scale and NSV and I look forward to what 2014 has in store for me.
