Size Medium top

Finally a post! I have really been slipping in the blogging department! I am still here, I am still losing, and I am still in this to the end. I can't honestly say that I have lost much weight in the last month or so but it's getting way harder to lose now. In order to lose any weight I seem to have to have "perfect weeks" or at least more good days than days that I went "off" program or didn't track, etc. Christmas is coming but I am bound and determined to not let that get in the way. It's only food. I will allow myself a little taste of my favorite things and I'm pretty sure Christmas Day I will not be tracking too closely! But I plan on getting to the gym lots and hitting my treadmill too, that will help. I was at Costco this Saturday with my husband and bought a cute sweater to wear with leggings (it's all about the leggings these days!). I got it in a size large which I'm used to buying now. I got it home and tried it on and it was too big!! My sister and I were back today and I got a size Medium. Low and behold, it fits perfect! I can wear a size Medium. Now that is awesome! The other awesome thing was getting a flyer in the mail with coupons for one of the Plus Size clothing stores that I used to shop at. That felt so good to toss it in the recycle bin. Won't be needing that, I said! So one foot in front of the other I go.....I will get there! 2012 will be my year :-)

Yes, it's true. At times I feel so close to my goal I can taste it. Other times, it feels so far away to me. I did not weigh in this week because it's Remembrance Day in Canada so there was no WW meeting. I could have weighed in early but to be honest I have struggled a bit this week so I will skip and weigh in next Friday. My back is better but I haven't done much this week for exercise. I need to step it up! I'm feeling much better about things now. I have to just focus on my goal and get there! We were looking at some old pictures on the computer today and I came across one from summer of 2010. It's hard to believe the difference!
I think sometimes when I'm feeling like it's never going to happen I need to look at how far I have come! It will happen. I am going to get to my goal. Whether it is this year or next year, it's going to happen.

I weighed in on Saturday morning. I was up 0.8 lb. I really wasn't surprised. I had such a big loss last week. I'm really glad they don't ask for your rewards back at Weight Watchers ;-) There's no way I'm giving up my 50 lb charm!! I have to look at last week and I realize that I didn't do as much exercise as the week before and my food choices weren't great. It's really getting more and more difficult now to stay focused and to keep the motivation going. I really, really want it though so I know I can do it. I am addicted to exercise now and it feels weird if I don't get some form of it in every day. I had the day off today and I had planned on going to Body Pump. Somehow I must have done something to my back in my sleep because it is very sore. No Body Pump for me. No nothing for me. I am resting and icing today. Hopefully by tomorrow it will be better. I leave you with a picture of me beside the new SUV we bought on the weekend! We got a 2012 Chevy Equinox, twilight blue metallic (the color is VERY important, as I insisted it had to be BLUE because my last 2 vehicles were red and I really, really wanted BLUE!). We don't pick it up until next Monday though so I have to wait :-(
I'm so excited!!!!
