Today's blog post is brought to you by the number 44.

Saturday, February 12, 2011

44- the age I turned today
44- the number of pounds I need to lose to be within normal weight range
44- the number if licks it takes to get to the bottom of a Tootsie Roll pop

Ok, so that last one isn't true, but the first two are. I count it a blessing to be 44, but I don't like the fact that the gray on my head is looking a little more obnoxious these days.

I also don't like the fact that I'm still 44 pounds away from my goal. I decided, however, that this WILL be the year I reach my goal weight. No excuses.

It's been about 8 weeks since I've been Sparking. The good thing is is that I've managed to maintain my weight over those 8 weeks. The bad thing is that I've maintained my weight over those 8 weeks. I don't think I hit a plateau; I just wasn't tracking my food/water and I wasn't exercising.

But today is a new day. I have a new vision; a revived drive.

By reaching my goal weight, I will be giving myself the chance to have many more birthdays to celebrate with my family. I have to do this. I will do this.
