New Year's Eve Miracle!

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

New Year's Eve coincided with my regular weigh-in day. I have not been logging, or going to the gym. More than one or two holiday treats have crossed my lips, so the last few weeks the scale has been holding steady. No loss and no gain. So you can imagine my surprise when I weighed in on Sunday to find that I had FINALLY hit the 40 pounds lost mark.

To make it even sweeter, I also dropped out of the 300's and into the 200's! Not sure how or why, but I'm taking it. Really motivates me to get into the groove and make more progress. I think I've been eating a bit less, even with the treats since I've been off work and eating later in the mornings and not necessarily having lunch since I wasn't hungry until closer to dinner time.

I'm off work until Jan. 8, so working on getting the house in order and part of that is purging the kitchen of the sweets and re-stocking the healthy stuff.

In March, I'll have been on Spark for a full year, so I'm hoping to get to 50 pounds down by then.

I hope 2018 brings us all closer to our goals for our best selves yet.
