I Did The Impossible!

Saturday, January 03, 2015

So many people told to me that everyone gains weight over the holidays. I have experienced it year after year. I have even said it myself. It was a holiday fact.

Not any more! I did it! Not only did I NOT gain weight over the holidays but I LOST 18 pounds since November 1st! Yeah you read that right!

I actually came within .2 of my first goal so I have reset for my next goal. I took time today to think about what I have accomplished in losing 34 pounds! I know it wasn't easy and I struggled many times along the way but I kept going.

Honestly, there was a time a few months ago that I was going to leave sparkpeople. I felt like running away and becoming a hermit, growing out my hair and maybe trying a beard (lol). Then I saw a commercial of Mick Dodge and decided that wasn't a good look. emoticon

Like I mentioned in my vlog the other day, I needed to get a new vision. I have set some goals for myself for this year and they aren't all focused on weight. I have a goal of getting organized in several areas of my home and life. This will include my weight loss journey. I know that when I am excelling in other areas of my life, I do well losing weight so I changed my focus to encompass other things. I feel it is a more balanced focus. Balance is so important.

If you have read my blogs or watched my vlogs before you know that I am big on having a positive attitude and that is going to be an ongoing project this year. It isn't easy to do but I have to keep working at it. It makes a difference. I can do this and I am worth it. You are too!

We all have to keep pushing and moving forward. When things get tough....

Much Love!
