Okay so I didn't make the 5o lbs I was so wanting to lose in 20 weeks.. and no I didn't complete 40lbs gone.. just 37lbs gone................but wait a minute.... that is THIRTY SEVEN lbs less than what I was just 20 weeks ago. So okay the holidays won alittle but so did I!!! lol The holidays might have slowed down my efforts but for the first time ever I didn't gain weight during the holidays!! So I am taking that as a win!

So Where does 2012 find me???
2012 Finds me...

37lbs lighter

no longer blonde lol ( I dyed my hair brown,,, have been blonde my whole life)

having more energy!

Waking up earlier

I m Doing more than I use to

I can get up now at 8am and stay awake all day (before I would get up at 10am and be so tired by noon.. )

working out.. going to try and work out atleast an hour a day ever day!!

I even sleep better now

I m down 2 pants sizes

I've lost alot of inches all around (I've gotta look back in my other blogs to see just how many but I know its been alot)

I feel Better!!

I'm pretty sure I could go on but I'm gonna stop and leave some time to go work out and clean house hahaha

Anyways so I want to Thank Miss SALLIE for letting me join her Challenge!!! And For all the encouragement along the way!! I am pretty sure if I hadn't joined her challenge I would have found excuses to eat and be lazy. (It's the holidays, your suppose to eat and be merry and relax ect. ect.) But with joining her and many others I had to check in and be held accountable... even on weeks where I didn't lose any and on weeks where I gained some lol But I m so not complaining!!! I am very Thankful for Sallie and her challenge and for All of my Spark Buddies!!! You all are wonderful amazing people!! So many of you have helped me with advise, encouragement, kind words, and so much more!! So I'd like to say THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!!!! If I could I would Give ALL A GREAT BIG HUG*** Its because of All of you and Sparkpeople web site that I have lost what I have and I pray that I Lose a great deal more! I've been on here since july 5th 2011 and plan on staying for a very long time!!

Hum so I guess now I need to go change around some goals and everything and start going again only stronger and harder!!! No more Holidays No more Excuses for me lol

Also Yes I will be celebrating my 37lb lost.. but not with food hahaha.. I m not sure how yet but I am Happy about it and so looking forward to loosing so much more

Right now I am 313.1 so next goal is to lose 15lbs... and finally get out of the 3's for what I hope and pray and going to do my best to make sure that is the last time I see those numbers!!! And when I get to the 200's that will be the first time in 7+ YEARS since I was under 300. So I will be celebrating my friends!!

Okay so enough of my jibber jabber.. It's time to go set some NEW Goals!!!! Thanks again my friends and I wish you all nothing but the BEST!!!
