I know, I know, it probably seems like I’ve forgot about my blog. I promise I haven’t though. I’m just caught up in the craze that is the end of the year for me at work and every moment seems to be taken up with something. Except Sundays. Between the rest of the week and my half marathon training (Sunday is my long run) Sunday’s have inevitably become the day I don’t do much at all. I think it’s because I’m physically and mentally exhausted by that point so all I can do is sleep or stare at the TV in a stupor. 😛
Despite all that craziness, I do have an exciting milestone to share. I have officially hit my 25-pounds-lost mark, which is also the halfway point for where I ultimately want to end up. Yay!
The funny thing is I suddenly feel waaay smaller now that I’ve crossed that line, so I’m ordering the next size down in pants to see if they fit. I feel like I’m swimming in my current pants so having something that fits would be really nice! 😄
Of course, I’ll always be happy hitting a milestone but this especially makes me happy because last year all of my work craziness was the downfall of my weight loss. Now I’m more than halfway through my busy season and I’m still going strong!
I will note that my weight loss has slowed waaay down. In the last 4 months I’ve only lost about 6.5 pounds. But I’m still excited and eager to be seeing progress. As long as I don’t see the scale go up I consider each week to be a success and I keep trying new things to find that right combo that will kick things into gear again. To pass the 25-pound mark I tried something new that resulted in 1.5 pounds lost last week (the highest I’ve seen in one week in quite a while) so fingers crossed that this is the right combination!
I’m dropping in a couple pictures for fun. The first is one I found from Christmas last year and the second wastaken this weekend in the same clothes. It’s so fun to see what a difference 25 pounds can make! 😄
