Long time gone.... tough year.

Saturday, December 28, 2013

Its now December 2013 and will I be glad to see this year go!
I've lost a total of 40 pounds since I joined Weight Watchers in April of 2012, but I've been stuck on a plateau since July 2013, losing and gaining the same 2-3 lbs over and over.
I've dropped 3 dress sizes, and can now shop at some high street stores (not all, but I'm not locked into buying from a "plus-size" shop any longer). And I can now walk farther than a few hundred yards at a time. I've been known to take 2 mile walks into the village centre and back home. emoticon emoticon
I'm not quite halfway to goal, although if I can kick-start this and start losing steadily again, I hope to be 75 pounds gone by the end of May 2014, for my 10th wedding anniversary. *fingers crossed*.
This last year has been a difficult one for other reasons as well.
I've developed non-alcoholic fatty liver, but the 40 lb loss is helping towards healing that, and my thyroid meds have been reduced, also I'm no longer taking bipolar meds. My Dr has decided that I'm coping well enough to not need them at this time. That may change, but only time will tell.
We've lost two of our kitty babies this year. Cleo passed away in Mar 2013, and Ginny passed away just a few days ago, on Christmas eve. We still have one kitty, Jinx, but she's 16 so I don't know how much longer we'll have her.
Hubby and I are planning to adopt 2 new kitties in the new year.
emoticon Happy holidays and may the coming year treat you kindly. emoticon

    Have you gotten your new kitties yet? I hope so.
I haven't been on Spark much of late, but thought I'd check in on you. Although you have had a tough year in 2103, you've had some wonderful successes. Build on those for this year. Sounds like you will be able to handle whatever 2014 dishes up for you.
All the best!
