I think it's been a while since I threw a real post here.
As of today I hover somewhere around 208. With quitting my job in April, and moving from Metro Detroit to Jeff City, there was 2.5 months where I really just sat around the house. I wasn't doing massage (as I'm not licensed in Missouri) and was unemployed. Admittedly I was very homesick. But who wouldn't miss ICHQ all all the wonderful people there?? I watched my weight go up and down with my lack of activity, and sudden spurts of "OMG I HAVE TO DO SOMETTTHHHIIIING"
Job hunting was depressing, and I found myself going back to food for comfort. Ice cream and chocolate, have always been my downfall. They continue to be.
So, since my 101 pound mark, at 10.5 months, I've only lost 2 additional pounds. I passed my one year mark on 7/20/10. 103 pound loss total, at one year. It's amazing what a year can do, and I'm proud of that accomplishment. I'm finding that my size 14 jeans are getting loose now, and I cannot wear any pants without a belt. I'm giving more and more clothes away.
However, I still have 38 pounds to loose, to be at my goal. I'm going to really start watching what I'm eating again... less carbs, more protein. I still can't stomach protein shakes though. Between the taste and the sweet, It makes me want to be sick.
I also plan to start walking after work. Even if it's only a few blocks, it needs to be done. I'm anxious to get my license for massage in Missouri, so I can start that type of work again. I lost so much weight when I was working as a therapist. When I was actively using my body everyday, and no longer behind the desk.
I'm putting my goal at 6 months to loose the 38 pounds. Putting it out there for everyone to see. And putting it out there to hold myself accountable for that goal.
Dear January 2011, you will see me at a slim 170 pounds.
