I've been completely stuck on a plateau for about 3 months now. Not sure how it happened, but I have finally broken free of the 160's. I have had 2 Thanksgiving dinners so far with one more to go tomorrow....How I managed to lose 2 pounds is a mystery to me, but I will take it! This may be the first time in my life that I have ever LOST weight during the holidays.
I think I have finally started making smarter choices with my eating which has really helped. While everyone is sitting around totally miserable after Thanksgiving dinner, I am feeling great and ready to go....I don't even have a desire to eat the MANY desserts that everyone brings.
I have also joined the holiday challenge at our gym at work. I had to weigh in last week and again January 5th. If I have not gained any weight, I get entered into a drawing for prizes.....I am going to go one step farther and LOSE weight!!!!
Here's to a wonderful holiday season and a new me for 2009. I am closing the chapter on my life as a fat girl and focusing on the new healthy me.....Now that I have learned more about exercise and proper nutrition, there is no reason for me to EVER be the fat girl again!
