Focused at last, but is it too little too late?

That "Ah HA!" moment I was waiting for finally happened on Monday. I snapped out of my funk, set some goals and hit the gym. I'm feeling great, but yet I have that nagging feeling at the back of my mind that I've just blown 2 crucial months for reaching my goal.
If I lose 1 pound a week every week until my wedding day, that's still only 12 pounds. My goal was 10 pounds, but then I gained! I am actually 17 pounds away from where I wanted to be.
Granted, even just 5 pounds would help for my dress - and there's always Spanx, but I really just wanted to naturally be my most beautiful self for a day of a thousand memories (and just as many photos).
The point is, I'm back on the horse - and seriously pumped. I had a great work out yesterday, I've got healthy food and a generally positive attitude. I just have to fight to concentrate on the things that I can change. I can affect my weight (positively or negatively), so I need to pay attention to that.
Plus working out regularly feels good, and I know it. I slept better last night, I feel pride in my accomplishment and I want to keep this up.
As motivation, I've started a SparkGuy "Consecutive Gym Days" wall in my cubicle. The highest I've ever gone is 4 days, so I'm excited to see how far I can take this!!!
