and a little something to compare it to...
Sunday, October 5, 2014
It's been some time since I last blogged. I have gotten caught up in life and complacency in my weightloss journey, and thus blogging has become less of a 'necessity'. Back in 2011 when I started my journey, I couldn't fathom going without journaling my progress. I needed to record each milestone and keep myself accountable. I wanted to be able to look back and see where I had come from, have a reminder of the pangs and triumphs, and the goals and accomplishments. There is even value in seeing the failures. I have lost 100+ pounds. I am not sure of my current weight. It is somewhere around 185. I don't get on the scale often. I wear about a size 12 on bottom, smaller than when I was in high school, and a size Medium-Large on top. I am comfortable in my own skin. I sometimes wish I was a little smaller, but I must not wish it that much or I would be doing more to achieve it. I could use to work out more, but currently I am working harder than I ever have. I love my job. I love my fiance, whom I should have married by now, but due to finances have not yet been able to. I have the goal of finishing my final six classes to get my degree by this time next year. I hope to be married and have a child. I hope to have advanced into a higher position in work. I hope to move my family to Minneapolis. It's funny that this post has quickly evolved into a sort of list of new year resolutions of sorts. Below is a picture of me trying on a dress (which I bought but haven't worn to work yet) just about a month or so ago. I didn't have my spanx on to smooth the bumps, but I felt pretty hot in this dress. (No it's not leopard print, just a brown and black knit fabric).
I am happy with how far I have come. I hope to have a baby (did I mention that already??) in the next year or so. I'm practicing really hard!! ;-) Things are moving in a positive direction. If I haven't heard from you in a while, drop me a comment and say hello! Feel free to email even. I would love to hear from my fellow bloggers/readers about how you're doing, good, bad or otherwise.
