That’s right! I am HALFWAY to my goal! As of yesterday I have lost a total of 40 lbs!!! Yes that means 40 more to go, and for those who are skeptical, yes it’s there… trust me! I still got a big ol booty! LOL! I am only 5 foot tall so that doesn’t really help either. But it is what it is and I’m working hard to change it. I am celebrating my milestone with a massage tomorrow, thanks to Bryan for the gift certificate for Mother’s day, as well as a body wrap. Hey I can use all the help I can get! 🙂 Last week I hit another milestone, I ran 2 miles nonstop for the first time ever! The running is definitely the key factor to getting the weight off faster for me. I have noticed I lose more on the weeks I run.
This is going to be a short blog since it’s like midnight and I’m waiting on my clothes to finishing washing before heading to bed. Fun Thursday night! lol In 2 days we are leaving for the beach. 3 months ago I was dreading this vacation. The thought of a bathing suit would send me into an anxiety attack. But it was also a huge motivation! Even though I still have a ways to go, I am feeling better about being in a bathing suit. In fact, I had to get it altered last week as it was a tad too big! Love that feeling! And just because we are going on vacation doesn’t mean my diet and workout will too. The condo we are staying in has a small fitness center and I am packing my workout clothes! Yep, working out at the beach! I also plan to go to the store as soon as we get there and stock up on fruits and veggies. For me there is no vacation from a healthy lifestyle anymore. I used to “take a break” on vacations and it usually ended up with me taking a break for good and gaining the weight back. Not this time. This is a lifestyle change, not a temporary one. Being healthy is way too important to me now, as well as looking good and having confidence of course. It’s not worth the emotional roller coaster to even think of going back to old habits. I even plan to bring my scale with me to make sure I stay on track.
I have a lot more to say but it’s late and I’m tired. Stay tuned to find out just how well I do on my vacation… 🙂
