Ups and downs

Thursday, December 22, 2016

210. 23. 187. Those are the three numbers I'm focusing on right now. 210, the number I'm starting at right now. I've been hovering around that number for a while and it needs to stop. 23, the number of pounds I need to lose to get to my goal weight... 187. Why 187? Its the number I stayed at for over a year, the number I was happy at. Its not the skinniest, the healthiest, but its me, and its where my body liked to be for a long time.

I'm sick of my clothes fitting tight. I'm sick of having to buy a size up than I did. However, right now, I can't help but say, other than those things... I'm happy.

Its been over two years since I last posted and a LOT has changed. I'm in a new position, at work, where I have to work in the office and not at home. I'm a supervisor now, and I LOVE it. Its exactly where I wanted to be. However, I have to learn how to eat in the office, with all of those temptations and not gain the weight that I have in a year. 23 pounds in a year. Not good.

I know how to do this. I really do. I've done it for so long before that it should be like putting on that pair of comfy pants... normal. So, I just have to apply what I know and do it. I'm not putting it off until 1/1, or even until tomorrow. Today is the day I start.

    Absolutely outstanding blog. Change occurs in life and this is the year it impacted me too. Funny, I am with you, good change can still be significant change and things happen. I am so happy to hear that you are happy. I too know how to get back to where I am comfortable and I too am sick of clothes fitting tighter than we should. You may have just motivated me to get on the treadmill today. Yep, I made this blog about me, NOT good. However, you are a positive motivation and are not at all alone.

    You go girl! CONGRATS on the job! CONGRATS on knowing what to do and doing it. Once again, YOU GO GIRL. HUGS2U!

    That's a good goal. It takes some effort but it gets a little easier once you get back into the habit.
