Progress this Year

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

I have to say, despite the ups and downs of my weight loss this year, falling off track a few times, I've still managed to lose 40lbs. I feel this year has been different than any others that I've tried to lose weight. I've fallen off plan big time(dieting) 5-6 times this year from anywhere from 3-7 days, however I've jumped right back on program. I've also had my ups and downs with exercising, at a low point I hadn't worked out a single time for 5 weeks.

But the biggest difference, is I have not let this sabotage my progress and say to myself, forget it I've already cheated for 7 days or I haven't worked out in 5 weeks and fall into self loathing and give up. Despite the challenges, I've still lost 40lbs this year, oh sure I'd like more, but I'm truly happy with that! If I keep up the momentum and lose another 40lbs next year, I will officially have been the smallest I've been in say 15+ years!!! That puts a great big grin on my face emoticon
