Oh boy!

Friday, January 17, 2014

Hi, SP! Quick update. Unfortunately I managed to pack on some pounds over the holidays. I ended my 3+ year relationship right before Thanksgiving, started a new relationship right after Thanksgiving, and I have been spending a lot of time with my new man who loves to cook for me. Between delicious, not-so-healthy meals, skipping the gym, drinking way too much wine, treats and goodies in the break room at work in the days leading up to Christmas and Christmas itself, I had a really hard time resisting temptations. As of right now my weight is in the mid to high 130's. Thankfully, I can still fit into my size 6 pants just fine (when I first started to lose weight I was wearing size 10 when my weight was in the 130's). The problem is that most of my pants are size 2 or 4 so I've been rocking the oversized sweater look with pants that are too snug. Not okay! We started a weight loss challenge at work so I'm back at it - healthy habits, gym time, running and telling the boyfriend to go easy on the butter and oil! I haven't been feeling myself lately, and I looked at all of my pictures from when I was around 110 pounds, and I would love to get back down to that size! I did it once and I'll do it again. Here we go!

    I'm 14 pounds away from my goal weight -- let's get this done! Gotta love a man who cooks, but you'll need to work on him to keep it healthy!!

    I'm about in the same place as you! Holidays hit, relationship ended (although a new one didn't start), and now work is doing a weight loss challenge. I am also hoping to lose about 20 lbs. I'm sure we both can do it! :)
