I thought it could not be done. I truly believed (in the beginning) I would never reach my goal of 185 pounds. It had been *such* a long time since I had seen those numbers on the scale, it truly seemed an impossibility. Well, I am here to tell you…it was not impossible!
I MADE GOAL OVER THE HOLIDAYS!!!!
This morning I weighed in at 183.2 pounds! This is the least I have weighed since I can even remember…teenage years included! Since July 10, 2011 I have lost a total of 131.8 pounds. From my heaviest recorded weight (according to my doctor’s office), though, I have lost a total of 158.8 pounds (since January 2011). I find this absolutely mind-blowing! Insanity.
My prediction for this year is *very* optimistic. I am starting this year the healthiest I have been probably in my whole life. I am also starting this year the happiest I have been as well. I have amazing people in my life right now who love and support me, which is an awesome feeling.
Of course, I have goals left to meet (and new goals will continue to come, believe me). So, the work is not finished…we are just beginning. This is when things start to heat up, not cool down. My boyfriend (Marty, AKA most awesome/amazing man I know) is going to be training to run a marathon. Guess who gets to help? I am excited for him, especially since this is something I will likely never do with my knees. I am working toward my certification still, and my BS in Health & Wellness. My photo shoot is coming up with Kat (awesome photographer) and Aaron (phenomenal trainer), so I am both looking forward to it and being anxious about it. Good things, though, good things.
How did your year start off? What goals are striving for this year?
