Weight Loss Update-Week 13 of the Christmas Challenge


So how am I doing? Well I'm on the right track, my weight is going down.  This morning I was 188.4, which is awesome considering I was just on vacation the last week and half, which usually means weightgain.  Can you believe I'm only 18.4 lbs from my next goal?! That doesn't seem like a lot at all.  I mean when  you remember that I was once 250 lbs, getting down to 18 lbs above my goal is pretty frickin cool.

I really need to go to the grocery store and get some healthy snacks and lunch stuff.  Eating at the hospital food court for lunch will kill your wallet and your waistline.

I have been enjoying wearing clothes from when I as in my early twenties. This photo sucks cause it's from my iphone and it was foggy, but my husband insisted on taking a photo of me this outfit.  He LOVES this skirt. I bought it at the limited when I was 13! Yes, junior high.  It was gloomy and rainy today so I felt like dressing a little "fall like." Well as fall as Florida can get!

So my goals over the next few weeks are to finish training for the 5K which is on Oct 23rd! Yeah! and to clean up my diet and start taking my supplements again.  I've been really bad about my vitamins.

Sometimes I wonder how I can sustain continued loss over the holiday season.  But I know that chasing my daughter at holiday parties will keep me from the buffet table!

I wish everyone else out there that is on a journey to get health and lose weight my continued support and encouragment.  I am starting to get happy with the way I look for the first time in a long time.  I told Courtney on our recent visit I want to be able to go out and run in just a sports bra and shorts and not scare the neighborhood children.  Next summer my goal is to wear a two piece swimsuit before I try to have another baby!

Cheers!
